    The easy steps for claiming for industrial deafness


    The easy steps for claiming for industrial deafness

    What is industrial deafness?:

    With more than one million people in the UK working in industries where they are exposed to high levels of noise, there is an increased risk of damage to hearing.  Industrial deafness is categorised into 4 main areas which measure severity of damage:

    • Temporary loss of hearing
    • Permanent loss of hearing
    • Acoustic trauma
    • Tinnitus

    Although there has been a 50 per cent surge in claims in the last two years, many people are staying silent about possible work compensation and claims, for which they are legally entitled. In this easy step by step guide, we will show you the best way to build your case for an industrial deafness claim from diagnosis through to work compensation.

    By UK law, there is a time limit of three years in which a personal injury claim, of any level, for compensation must be put forward. So don’t delay, it really is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

    Getting a diagnosis – Industrial deafness

    Each claimant and case is treated as an individual and will vary depending on many factors. Some of these things will be the severity of the deafness (based on the four categories), if the deafness affects one or both ears and how it affects the sufferer’s daily life. No claim can be put forward until a formal diagnosis is given by your GP or certificated medical specialist. This is your proof that your diagnosis is medically proven.

    Gathering your case- work compensation claim

    The Noise at Work Act 1989 was put in place to protect employee’s rights and safety within working environments where noise levels are of a high intensity. Any legislation or rights broken is an act of liability by your employer. Any proof of liability or fault will only make your case stronger so be sure to gather as much information as possible. Guidance on this can be found online and through our website.
