Anyone who thinks they have a partial hearing loss accident claim should contact Accident Advice Helpline for expert legal advice.
A partial hearing loss accident claim may result from an industrial deafness accident. Thousands of such accidents have been recorded and they can be very serious indeed. Partial hearing loss may restrict the occupations that someone might be interested in working in and can, therefore, have a detrimental effect on their quality of life and income prospects. Financial compensation can go some way to alleviating the effects of hearing loss.
If someone works in an environment where there are very loud, frequent noises, they can sustain serious hearing loss. An employer is obliged to provide a safe working environment, with adequate equipment, but cases of workplace hearing loss occur nonetheless. If left untreated, hearing loss can worsen over time. Noise-induced hearing difficulties can range from ringing in the ears – a condition known as tinnitus – to more severe cases of hearing loss from repeated exposure to noisy work environments. Accident Advice Helpline can help someone with partial hearing loss sustained at work through its team of experienced and professional industrial injury accident solicitors.
If someone thinks they may be suffering from partial hearing loss as a result of the type of work they are doing, they should visit a doctor without further delay. Not only can the doctor help with any particular medical issues surrounding the hearing loss, they can also help with any compensation claim, providing exactly the type of evidence needed by a client’s solicitors to prove a case in court. People worry about the cost of attending their doctor, but where a claim is to be submitted, such costs can be compensated for as part of an overall settlement.
If someone suffering from partial hearing loss happens to know a work colleague experiencing similar symptoms, they should keep their contact details as that person’s medical condition may prove to be important evidence in a compensation claim. If the matter of hearing loss has been mentioned to the individual’s employer or to supervisors in the past then that is something that could also prove useful as evidence.Open Claim Calculator
If someone contacts Accident Advice Helpline with a view to making a claim for partial hearing loss, the helpline will have to have proof of basic medical diagnosis and treatment for the claim to proceed, as well as proof that the hearing loss is not as a result of the victim’s own negligence and that it occurred in the past three years. In reality, the hearing loss may have happened before that time, but confirmation from a medical professional that the hearing difficulties were diagnosed within the three-year period preceding the claim is sufficient in such circumstances.
