Industrial Deafness Compensation Claim Solicitors
All employers in the UK are responsible for ensuring that their workplaces are safe and free from hazards. This means that in the eyes of the law, you have the right to work without risking your health and wellbeing.
When considering aspects of Health and Safety in the workplace, most people would immediately think of physical hazards such as unsafe equipment or toxic substances. But noise can be just as big a risk as those kinds of health and safety no-nos.
Excessive noise in the workplace can lead to what is known as Industrial Deafness. This usually involves temporary or permanent loss of hearing, Tinnitus or acoustic shock. These conditions are invariably caused by prolonged exposure to very loud noise, which can occur in a wide variety of workplaces ranging from heavy industry, manufacturing and transportation to call centres and music venues.
In short, no matter what industry you work in, you can claim Industrial Deafness compensation or Tinnitus compensation if you suffer from loss of hearing or impaired hearing caused by high levels of noise at work.
It may be that you have not have been provided with effective ear protection, or you may have not have received adequate training about noise induced hearing loss. In both these cases, you would have grounds to make a claim.
Even if the exposure to excessive, work-related noise happened several years ago you can still make a claim. In fact, your claim for Industrial Deafness compensation is valid even if the employer has since gone out of business.
If you have suffered from symptoms of work-related deafness or Tinnitus, it is bound to have had a detrimental effect on your life and your wellbeing. You deserve to be compensated for the suffering caused by the negligence of your employer.
