Epsom and Ewell ‘no win, no fee*’ accident
There are some injuries and even illnesses that are not caused due to a one time accident or a specific event but instead they develop over a period of time. A good example of this is some of the work related injuries and illnesses that we see here at Accident Advice helpline. To give you an example of one of these is to look in more detail at is Industrial Deafness or Industrial loss of hearing. This is just one of the work related injuries the Epsom and Ewell ‘no win, no fee*’ accident team deals with frequently.
Industrial deafness occurs when an employee loses their hearing, or part of their hearing ability, as a direct result of the working environment. This usually happens over a long period of time working in environments with high levels of loud noise exposure. Industrial deafness is common in a wide range of industrial environments, particularly where noisy, heavy, machinery is used.
As with any other claim for compensation the victim must not have been responsible for his or her own injury or disability. It is also important to identify who the claim should be made against. As far as industrial deafness claims are concerned the employee will have to prove that he or she was not responsible for the loss of hearing, but that the fault lies with the employer.
Employers have a duty of care to their employees and standards in the workplace are subject to strict health and safety regulations. The fact that these standards have not been met may give the worker the opportunity to make a claim for hearing loss or industrial deafness. This will involve making a claim for personal injury. Making a claim for personal injury may seem daunting and confusing but with help from the Epsom and Ewell ‘no win, no fee*’ accident team at Accident Advice Helpline it will not be at all.
