Loss of hearing and making a compensation claim
Hearing loss can occur for a variety of reasons but if it has been caused through negligence in your place of work, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in Rowen.
It may be that you have not been supplied with the appropriate personal protection equipment to carry out your job or it may even be that the noise levels are too high in the working environment.
No matter what the reason for the cause of your hearing loss, if it was someone else’s fault, you are entitled to make a claim.
Accident Advice Helpline can provide support and guidance about making your claim and can put you in touch with the in-house solicitors who are experienced in dealing with such cases.
The ‘no-win, no-fee*’ obligation means that it doesn’t matter what the outcome of your case is; you won’t have to pay out any of your own money.
Employers duty of care
When you are in your place of work, your employer has a duty to make sure your health and safety is protected and this includes your hearing. If they have neglected to do this and it has had a negative effect on your health, you are entitled to make a compensation claim in Rowen.
If you feel that your hearing is being impaired, you should always raise your concerns with your employer in the first instance and they should take steps to rectify the situation. You shouldn’t worry about making a compensation claim in Rowen against your employer as Accident Advice Helpline will ensure it is carried out with discretion so you are not put in an awkward position in the workplace.
It is highly unlikely that your manager would find out about your claim, as it will be against the company, rather than an individual.
How to make a compensation claim in Rowen
There are many consequences of hearing loss and these can affect all aspects of your life. It can result in social isolation as you may not be able to communicate in the same way as you would have in the past and you may feel that people are looking at you differently.
It can also have an effect on your work and may even result in you being unable to carry out your normal job, particularly if you are required to communicate with the public.
Hearing loss can also make you vulnerable in situations such as crossing the road, so there is no underestimating the damage it can cause.
Accident Advice Helpline will offer support for your compensation claim against an accident at work and will do their up-most to ensure you get reimbursed for your injury.
If you have suffered from out of pocket expenses, they will also take measures to ensure these are covered.
You can speak to advisers 24/7 and with a ‘no-win, no-fee*’ obligation, you have nothing to lose by making a claim.
