    Expert injury solicitors in Pevensey Bay


    The East Sussex Hearing Resources bus, funded by the Big Lottery, visits Pevensey Bay to provide a service to the deaf and hard of hearing. It is wheelchair accessible, and those who run the service can provide individual information for people who have suffered hearing loss. Of course, there are some who have been deaf from birth, but others suffer from loss, or partial loss of hearing because of the noisy working conditions they have endured. If you have suffered hearing loss because of your working environment, you may be looking for a firm of expert injury solicitors in Pevensey Bay, or ones based elsewhere in the country in order to file a personal injury compensation claim, perhaps against your employer.

    Claiming for work-related deafness

    If you have suffered loss of hearing and can prove that this was caused by your employer’s negligence, you may be seeking expert injury solicitors in Pevensey Bay, to help you file a claim. You have three years from first being diagnosed with any illness caused by another person’s negligence if you can prove this.

    There are different compensation payments made for varying degrees of deafness; if you have occasional or mild tinnitus with some hearing loss, then you could receive up to a maximum of £17,500. If the condition was more severe, i.e. moderate tinnitus and hearing loss, you could receive up to £35,000. If you suffer psychological damage resulting from severe tinnitus the maximum amount of compensation you could receive is £70,000, although it might be higher depending on psychological factors.  If you lose your hearing in one ear, you could expect to receive between £35,000 and £60,000, while for total deafness you could receive between £160,000 and £250,000.

    Expert injury solicitors in Pevensey Bay

    Injury solicitors in Pevensey Bay or ones based in any other part of the UK, can help you build a case against a person whose negligence can be proven to have caused an illness. That person might be your employer, if you have been diagnosed with industrial deafness, for example. It could also be a landlord if you are a tenant, a restaurant owner if you have had food poisoning, and so on.

    You may also be seeking injury solicitors in Pevensey Bay, for example, if you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. You have two or three years in which to file a claim. However you should check with a firm of injury solicitors, or with us at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out how long you have in which to file your injury claim.
