Industrial illnesses in Vale of Glamorgan can include damage to your ears if they are not properly protected.
Have you ever thought about how your ears work? Once we have all left school we sometimes forget just how fantastic the human body is and how every part works in an amazing way. Our ears are no exception. Our ears help us to detect sound; they convert sound waves into nerve pulses and sends them to the brain. Your ears pick up the sound and then your brain makes it all make sense to you. There are three parts that make up our ears:
- Outer ear- this is the part of the ear that we can see, it catches the sound waves and sends them to the ear drum.
- Middle ear– this is a small space inside the eardrum filled with air. It has three tiny bones. When the sound is passed to the eardrum the tiny bones move and pass on the vibration to another part of your ear.
- Inner ear- This is filled with fluid that moves with the vibrations and bends the tiny hair cells in the ear. Some of these hairs then create an electrical impulse to the brain.
Due to the ear’s complex make up it is susceptible to damage which can result in permanent hearing loss. An accident at work causing a heavy blow or trauma to your ear could damage the Cochlear, fracture the ear’s bones, perforate the ear drum or cause swelling and bleeding. All this could lead to hearing loss.
If you are suffering or have ever suffered from a damaged ear because of your job, you may be feeling pain, loss of hearing, swelling and discomfort. If the injury was not your fault you should think about making a claim for industrial illnesses in Vale of Glamorgan.
Any injury to your ear should receive medical treatment immediately to prevent permanent hearing loss. When you are at work your employer has a duty of care to keep you safe, so if the accident was caused due to your employers negligence or even just a human error on their part you are entitled to make a claim to claim back some of your loses plus an amount for your injury.
