    Possible compensation case for industrial deafness?

    Get the legal help, advice, and guidance from our lawyer in Lawrenny

    There are many reasons to claim compensation; many people feel that it gives them a sense of financial justice, whilst for other people it gives them the finances they need to be able to make adaptations to their lives, needed as a result of being hurt by someone else’s actions.

    For many, they face a retirement littered with ill health and failing senses, such as hearing, as a result of the work they did. For many claimants, they need advice, help and guidance on the legal issues of claiming compensation, such as that offered by our lawyer in Lawrenny.

    Are you suffering from hearing that is deteriorating?

    Many people, men and women, worked in industries that were not only dirty and hard, but also environments that were incredibly loud and noisy.

    We all know that loud noises, consistently experienced by our ears can cause our hearing to be damaged. There is now a whole raft of advice out there to protect our hearing for as long as possible and, as our lawyer in Lawrenny will tell you, there is also now a whole host of health and safety regulation and laws that stipulate how employees should be looked after.

    Think work is to blame for your deafness? Our lawyer in Lawrenny could help…

    Like all compensation claims, your case will need to meet strict guidelines and criteria as laid down in personal injury law. However, there is one significant difference with these types of cases and that is: time.

    Open Claim Calculator

    People who suffer accidents or catastrophic events under ‘normal’ circumstances have a 3 year window of opportunity within which they can make a claim for compensation.

    Recognising that industrial diseases, such as loss of hearing, might not develop for some years after the event, this 3 year window of opportunity is ‘moved’ but, you must make a claim for compensation in the 3 years that you were told you had industrial deafness or could ‘reasonably’ link your loss of hearing to your work environment.

    Some industrial deafness cases have long been recognised, with many former employees within some industries being told they are entitled to claim compensation. For others, the case might not be as straightforward.

    But, our lawyer in Lawrenny is more than happy to handle complex compensation cases. If you think you deafness can be directly attributed to your working environment, you should call us on 0800 689 0500.
