What is noise-induced hearing loss?
Industrial deafness, including noise-induced hearing loss, tinnitus and acoustic shock disorder, is caused by long-term exposure to excessive noise. Employers have a duty of care to train their employees fully in the safe use of machinery and tools, and to provide them with the correct personal protective equipment for use while carrying out their duties. If you have previously worked in a noisy environment for three or more years and are now suffering from problems with your hearing, you could be suffering from work-related hearing loss and could be entitled to £1000s in compensation.
As with many cumulative work-related illnesses, the symptoms of industrial deafness often go unnoticed in the early stages, but they worsen over time. Many people are unaware their symptoms have been caused by their work, and often put them down to the simple process of ageing. But these symptoms can be disabling and isolating, and are generally irreversible.
If you're suffering, we can help
Any noisy working environment can lead to industrial deafness if the correct working procedures are not followed. If you’ve ever worked in an environment that is consistently noisy, such as a factory, shipbuilding yard or power station, or have regularly handled noisy tools like grinders, drills, presses, looms or pneumatic tools and you now suffer from problems with your hearing, you could be entitled to £1000s in compensation. Take our quick survey now to find out for free if you can make a No Win, No Fee claim. Our team of experts is here to support you through every step of the process to get you the compensation you deserve, and get you back on the road to living a full life.
Industrial deafness is avoidable if workers in noisy environments adhere to industrial and safety regulations.
Employers have a responsibility to provide their employees with protective equipment, training and advice to prevent hearing loss. Hearing loss is irreversible, so it’s incredibly important employers follow the correct procedures to prevent industrial deafness.
Your employer should:
- Make sure any risks from noise are controlled
- Provide information and guidance on the risk
- Monitor your health in relation to the risk
- Provide personal protective equipment such as earplugs or earmuffs
- Ensure you take adequate breaks from using noisy tools and machinery
If you haven’t been provided with any information on the risk of noise-induced hearing loss, or haven’t been given adequate breaks or protective equipment, your employer’s negligence could have put you at risk and you could be entitled to compensation.
In most cases, a claim must be made within three years of you becoming aware your symptoms may be related to the work you have done or are doing. If your illness is related to work you did outside of the UK, the time limit placed upon making a claim could be shorter. Either way, it is vital that you contact us as soon as possible to find out if you are entitled to make a claim. Answer our few quick questions to log your enquiry, and one of our team will call you back within a few hours.
The amount of compensation you receive for industrial deafness will depend on a few factors related to your illness, its circumstances and the level of support and rehabilitation you need moving forward. Among the factors taken into account are: – The severity of your hearing loss – If your employer followed the right procedures and processes to protect you – Any medical and travel expenses you’ve had to pay – Your care and support needs, now and in the future Log an enquiry with us today for a free consultation with one of our claims experts.
Where your claim is successful we will be entitled to charge you a success fee which will be capped at no more that 25% Inc VAT of the compensation you receive. If you fail to cooperate, provide misleading or dishonest information or breach the terms of your agreement, we may charge you for the work we have completed on your case.
Yes. Even if your former employer has gone out of business, you could still make a claim. The company will have been insured to deal with claims such as this, so it will be the insurer’s responsibility to make any compensation payouts.
If you wish to make a claim for compensation against your current employer, any payout will be made by their insurer, not the company itself. There are legal safeguards in place to protect you against unfair dismissal. This means your employer must be able to justify their reason for dismissing you in relation to your claim, and this is highly unlikely. Our team will be able to talk you through any concerns you have about bringing a claim. Log your interest with us today, and one of our experts will call you back within a few hours.
More than 95% of the cases we take on are resolved out of court, meaning you probably won’t have to appear in court to give evidence. Our legal experts will gather all the information needed to prove your case, and will work tirelessly behind the scenes to get you the compensation you deserve.
