If you work around loud machinery, equipment or in otherwise noisy environments, you need adequate protection to prevent industrial deafness from occurring.
Industrial hearing loss is wholly preventable, and there are steps that employers can take to reduce the risk of employers sustaining it outlined in the Noise at Work Act. Yet unfortunately, when employers fail to adhere to these guidelines, innocent employers can be left with permanent hearing damage. If this has happened to you, you could be within your rights to claim compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline is a leading workplace injury law firm with experience handling cases involving industrial deafness, and we are here to help if you are living with this condition because of someone else’s negligence.
How much could you claim in Falkirk accident at work compensation?
The amount you could receive will be dependent on a number of factors, starting with the extent of the hearing loss itself. The amount awarded to those that are suffering with tinnitus or mild hearing damage compared with someone that has succumbed to full, permanent deafness will be different.
However, this is not the only factor your personal injury solicitor will take into consideration when determining what you could be owed. Your lawyer will analyse everything from the amount you have lost in wages as a result of your hearing loss to the amount you have paid in medical bills, how your hearing loss has impacted your capacity to earn income and affected your family relationships, and so on.
