Industrial Deafness Claims
Industrial Deafness Claims Solicitors
Have you worked in any noisy industry such as a warehouse, factory, mill, mine or dock? If yes, then there is a high likelihood that you will have suffered damage to your hearing as a direct result of your employment.
We can arrange a free audio gram (hearing test) which will conclusively determine the existence and extent of any damage. Following this we will be able to advise you about the strength of your claim and provide an approximate assessment of its value.
If your health and safety at work has been overlooked or disregarded causing you damage, then you are eligible to pursue a claim for compensation in order to secure payment to which you are lawfully entitled.
Common symptoms of Industrial Hearing Loss include:
- Industrial Deafness in one or both ears
- Intermittent, temporary or permanent deafness
- Tinnitus generally taking the form of buzzing or hissing noises
- Missing parts of conversation
- Difficulty hearing conversations
- Struggling to hear the doorbell
- Constantly having to turn the TV volume up
Even if you have not noticed any of the above symptoms we would still encourage you to take a free hearing test provided you have worked in industry. This is because many claimants who have received compensation had previously overlooked the damage until it was detected and brought to their attention.
Do not worry, if you cannot remember the specific employers and periods of employment as we can obtain this information on your behalf. Even if the company is no longer in operation, it would still have been obliged to have insurance cover when in order to cover any future claims for compensation.
