Industrial deafness – do you have a claim?
There are many industrial diseases that many people now have to learn to live with. They can have a real negative impact on your day-to-day life.
If you are one of these people suffering from an industrial disease, then you should contact Accident Advice Helpline. When you need injury lawyers in Worcester, we can provide you with the guidance that you need.
When you’re searching for injury lawyers in Worcester, we will be able to give you the full details of how to make a claim in many industries such as heavy industry, mining and quarrying where the day-to-day working environment is incredibly noisy. Today, workers should be supplied with ear muffs or defenders to protect their hearing, but many years ago this was not the case.
What you need to do
Get medical help – there is no doubt that getting the right medical help and advice for your hearing loss is essential. Many GPs and hearing clinics are well aware of the need to attribute the hearing loss to some cause. If there is no genetic deafness in your family, the next ‘obvious’ cause is your job. Those who have worked in various heavy industries will have their hearing loss officially linked to the workplace.
Once you have this official link to your deafness diagnosis, you will need to keep all the paperwork and documentation sent to you, including any letters that official confirm the link. Your injury lawyers in Worcester will need all of this detail in order to build a comprehensive case for compensation on your behalf.
There is no deadline as such
For other accidents and events, the victim who has been injured has three years from the date of the accident in which to lodge a claim for compensation, but in the case of industrial diseases – including industrial deafness – this three-year rule does not apply. Still though, you should get started with your claim as soon as you can.
