Industrial deafness is a serious and yet wholly preventable condition that affects countless employees across the country.
The Noise at Work Act was introduced to reduce and control the amount of noise exposure across UK work sites and yet it is still the case that employees in environments such as factories and construction sites work around loud equipment. If this occurs over a long period of time, hearing loss can ensue and the results can not only be devastating but in most cases irreversible. If this has happened to you or a loved one and you want the help of injury solicitors in Craignure or elsewhere in Scotland you should contact Accident Advice Helpline.
Make an industrial deafness claim
Our law firm specialises in personal injury claims and have helped many people bring forth a case for industrial deafness over the years. If your hearing loss has occurred within the past three years and you can prove your employer’s negligence was the cause, we can help you as well.
If you’ve been working around loud machinery or equipment for a number of years, you may develop tinnitus, which causes a high-pitched ringing noise to occur. It is sometimes the case that hearing loss is more severe and will require the person affected to wear hearing aids for the rest of his or her life. No-one should have to suffer hearing loss as a result of merely going to work. If you have, make contact with our injury solicitors to discuss putting things right.
