If you work or have previously worked in a loud environment, you may be at increased risk of developing industrial deafness.
Work-related hearing loss occurs when employees have had prolonged exposure to loud work environments without adequate breaks or protection. When this happens, mild to severe hearing loss can develop. From tinnitus to permanent deafness, hearing loss can forever impede your quality of life.
If you’re suffering with deafness and believe your work conditions to be the reason why, contact the solicitors in Horton-Cum-Studley at Accident Advice Helpline. For over fourteen years, we’ve successfully handled personal injury and illness claims for employees around the UK. Our solicitors in Horton-Cum-Studley can help you make an industrial deafness claim that’s fast, affordable and that gives you the best chances of a successful outcome.
In order to make a claim, your hearing loss must have onset within the past three years. You should also be able to prove that your employer is at fault, be it through witness statements, video or camera footage or other supporting evidence. There are many factors that will determine the amount you could receive from your employer, such as the extent of your hearing loss, and whether it’s temporary or permanent.
