Most of us take our hearing for granted each day but, it is a sense that is more sensitive and delicate than you may think. It can be damaged by excessive noise which causes serious hearing problems and, so, effect you on a day to day basis. Are you having to ask people to repeat themselves or find that you are adjusting the volume levels when watching TV or listening to your radio?
You may have been working in a noisy environment for many years without protection and yet now don’t consider it to be a problem as you’ve got used to it but, you’ve noticed deterioation?
If your hearing loss has come about after working in a noisy working environment and your employers did not provide you with the necessary ear defenders, then you could make a claim for compensation.
All employers are required by law to hold Employers’ Liability Insurance which means employees can feel safe enough to claim compensation without fear of losing your job.
At Hodge Jones & Allen we have a team of dedicated, experienced solicitors who specialise in claiming compensation for employees suffered noise induced hearing loss and industrial deafness. We believe passionately that everyone who goes to work has the right to work in a safe environment. When we are hurt or develop an illness at work which is due to our employers not taking proper care of us, then they should be able to claim compensation.
Our specialist team has helped many clients to claim compensation for a range of hearing conditions, including noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), acoustic shock and tinnitus. We have a great deal of experience in handling claims of this kind and know the sorts of issues that you and your family may be facing.
Dependent on the level of noise exposure you have suffered, the severity of industrial deafness can vary. We’ve have helped many people to claim after they were exposed to excessive noise in a range of industries, including engineering works, construction sites, steel plants and textiles.
As well as fighting to gain compensation for you, we can also help you to access the right support to help you to recover or, come to terms with your hearing loss.
