It’s often not obvious when you first start to suffer from noise induced hearing loss. At first you may start to notice unusual occurrences such as always having to turn the television up after someone else has been using it or you may miss bits of what people are saying to you and not really know why. CM’s hearing loss claims solicitors will have seen these symptoms before and have first-hand experience of helping people through these difficult first steps towards proper compensation.
Your employer has/had a responsibility to protect you from excessive noise as they will be aware of the effects this can have on your hearing. Even if the problem occurs later on in life, speak to our team today to see if you can make a hearing loss compensation claim.
Industrial Deafness Claim Solicitors
Our expert solicitors will be able to advise you whether or not you have grounds to claim compensation. We will discuss your matter during your free initial consultation where we will be able to tell you if we believe you have an industrial deafness claim.
Hearing loss is usually irreversible and you may need a hearing aid and so any compensation you receive could help you get on with your normal day to day life. Even if you have retired and the company you worked for no longer exists, we may still be able to help you win the compensation you deserve.
We have helped people who have suffered from deafness as well as tinnitus. Tinnitus can be caused by being subjected to excessive noise and results in a buzzing sound in the ears. Many people become distressed as the buzzing can occur throughout the day causing difficulty in sleeping.
Hearing Loss Compensation Solicitors
We will investigate your claim thoroughly and there are certain factors that we must establish in order to bring a successful compensation claim. Some of these include:
- A medical report – this must show that you are suffering from industrial deafness (or tinnitus)
- The deafness/tinnitus was caused by being exposed to excessive noise
- We must be able to show that your employer could foresee the risks involved of exposing you to excessive noise and was therefore negligent
There are many different symptoms that can arise in industrial deafness cases and these vary from person to person. Please ensure you visit your GP and they will carry out a hearing test for you to assess the damage. We will then be able to discuss your matter with you and start your hearing loss compensation claim.
