Making a claim is a straightforward process and most claims can be processed easily on the telephone. Most claimants will not even need to attend court. To make a successful compensation claim you need to be able to satisfy these criteria:
- Any deafness or hearing complaint you are suffering from needs to be established by an appropriately qualified medical professional. An official report is needed to outline the detail and extent of your complaint.
- Your hearing injury must be proved to have been a result of your work environment. Witness statements from co-workers or other documentary evidence from your employer will be needed.
- You should be able to show that when you were exposed to the dangerous levels of noise, your employer could have reasonably foreseen that there was a risk of employees suffering from a hearing injury.
- There should be evidence that your employer was negligent and did not make the appropriate effort to protect you from the noise.
