Noise Injury claims

What is Occupational Hearing Loss?
Occupational Hearing Loss, also known as noise induced hearing loss, can result from being exposed to excessive noise which can cause damage to the hairs situated within the inner ear. 

Symptoms include:

  • Difficulty in hearing a conversation against a noisy background
  • Ringing in the ears could be a sign of tinnitus

Often a person will not experience symptoms until later in life, and therefore realising that this may be related to employment may not be immediately realised.

Even if an employer is no longer trading, it may be possible to pursue a claim if the insurer for the period of employment can be identified.

Occupational deafness, or industrial deafness, traditionally affected those working in the following:

  • Heavy industry
  • Shipbuilding
  • Metalwork
  • Quarrying and drilling
  • Use of noisy machinery in engineering, textiles, printing and woodworking. 
  • Telecom industry - We have helped many ex BT and current BT engineers claim for compensation for their loss of hearing or hearing problems
  • Manufacturing - food production and processing

If you were exposed to noise at work, your employer had a duty to protect you from that risk and to provide a safe place in which to work.  

Why choose NewLaw solicitors?
At NewLaw we understand how noise can damage the hearing and the various conditions that this can cause, including noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus. If you have developed hearing loss or tinnitus as a result of noise exposure, you may be able to claim compensation.  

If you are only now experiencing symptoms of noise induced hearing loss and were employed some time ago, but your employer is no longer trading, you may still be able to claim for compensation. Your former employer should have been insured and those insurers are obliged to deal with your claim. Our team of noise induced injury claim experts are specialists in tracing insurers, often where others have failed. This has enabled  people who would otherwise have lost out, receive the compensation that they deserve.
