Do you feel that you have an ear injury that was not your fault? Do you suspect that your employer was to blame? If this is the case, you may be able to start a personal injury claim to get some compensation to help you cope. However, a personal injury claim for hearing loss is not something that you want to handle on your own. You will need a professional personal injury lawyer to help you with your case.
Getting help to start your claim
Claiming for an ear injury is a job for the professionals. It can be quite a complex task to prove that your employer was to blame. It may involve looking in detail at risk assessments and health and safety policies. It may also involve analysing witness statements and medical reports. Then all of this evidence has to be presented in the correct way.
However, there is no point in starting a claim that you have no chance of winning and so the most important part of the claim happens right at the start. Your case is assessed to see if you have a solid claim and if you are likely to get the compensation that you are seeking.
There are legal time limits for making personal injury claims but in the case of industrial diseases, such as noise-induced hearing loss, you have a longer time in which to start a claim. It is always best to get things underway as soon as you can though.
When claims are started soon after diagnosis, we find it a lot easier to track down any necessary paperwork and trace witnesses if we need them to make a statement. You may be required to attend a formal medical assessment appointment but we will make all of the arrangements and will try to make the appointment as close to your home as possible.
