Industrial deafness is a leading cause of accident at work compensation claims. It can be stressful and difficult to cope with. Unfortunately in the majority of cases, industrial deafness and tinnitus are irreversible. A number of new pioneering treatments have sought to change this and among them is Acoustic Co-ordinated Reset Neuromodulation.
What exactly is it?
To put it quite simply, the treatment works through targeted sound therapy which aims to disrupt abnormal nerve cells which may be responsible for tinnitus and other hearing-loss conditions.
Is it available on the NHS?
Unfortunately it is not yet readily available on the NHS. It is a costly treatment and can cost upwards of £4,000.
Is it effective?
The treatment is relatively new and it is quite difficult to assess the effectiveness. However, trials and studies conducted by the University of London have shown a marked improvement in over 70% of patients who underwent the treatment.
Claiming compensation for industrial deafness
If you’ve suffered industrial deafness as a direct result of your work and it wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation if this happened within the last three years. Compensation won’t take away the pain and suffering of an accident at your work but it can help to alleviate the financial difficulties that arise as a result of an unforeseen accident. Compensation could be used so that you too might benefit from acoustic co-ordinated reset neuromodulation.
