Deafness resulting from exposure to excessive noise is known as 'Noise Induced Hearing Loss' (NIHL). Hearing loss that is directly related to the work environment is commonly referred to as 'industrial deafness' and may occur if you have been exposed to excessive levels of noise during your working life.
Noise Induced Hearing Loss can have a significant impact on both your personal and professional lives. If you have suffered hearing loss due to the conditions in which you work, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact our specialist industrial deafness solicitors to start your claim today.
