You may be entitled to compensation for your loss of hearing
The small town of Woodstock in the UK shares its names with one of most iconic musical festivals of all time. Every year throughout the UK, there are a number of different music festivals, every one of them offering a different selection of music. While not a lot of festivals come close to the legend of Woodstock, there are so many on the market now that accidents and loss of hearing is on the up. Accident Advice Helpline understands that if your hearing has been damaged through no fault of your own, you may need to speak to a professional injury solicitor for Woodstock who will make a claim for compensation on your behalf.
Not all hearing damage comes from a music festival being too loud. Hearing damage can occur from situations such as loud concerts, a bang to the head, or even from working with loud machinery and not having the correct workplace protection. Hearing loss can affect either one, or both ears, and as with most injuries, hearing issues can affect people differently. Tinnitus, which is buzzing in the ears, is one of the most common diagnosed hearing issues. Other hearing problems may include dizziness and vertigo, as issues with your hearing can affect your balance and general state of mind.
Hearing loss in work
You may be abIe to claim compensation from an injury solicitor for Woodstock if you work in a loud environment and you are not provided with the correct hearing protection as this could cause you to suffer temporary or permanent hearing loss. We understand that not being treated properly in your place of work can have knock on psychological effects. While you are suffering from hearing issues, you may also experience emotional trauma due to the accident or injury you have endured.
If you receive a payout of compensation, you can spend it however you like. Once your claim has been accepted and you receive the money, you can use it for medical treatment, a holiday, or even a new car if you wanted.
