Noise induced hearing loss Claims

work hearing loss claims advice

Our specialist lawyers can help you make a claim for compensation for hearing loss and fund the whole case under our No Win, No Fee agreement.

Has your hearing suffered from working in a noisy environment?

You could be entitled to thousands of pounds in compensation if your employer failed to provide or enforce the use of hearing protection whilst working in a noisy environment.

Making a Noise Induced Hearing Loss Claim with The Injury Lawyers couldn’t be easier, and it doesn’t matter if you no longer work where you suffered the damage, and it doesn’t matter if your former employer is no longer in business.

Most people don’t realise the damage that has been done until later on in life – you can still claim for damage caused many years ago, but you must make your claim now because time may be running out!

How do I know if I have suffered noise damage from work?

If you worked in a noisy environment and have any of the following symptoms you may be suffering from noise induced hearing loss and you may be able to make a claim:

  • Partial or full deafness
  • Reduced ability to hear – such as difficulty hearing in noisy atmospheres
  • Tinnitus – which is any ringing, buzzing, humming, hissing, or whistling sound that can be heard in the damaged ear

Many workplaces are noisy and a lot of employers failed to take steps to protect their employees from suffering noise induced hearing loss injuries. Common examples of noisy workplaces can be:

Heavy Engineering Printing Industries
Steel Industry Textile Industry
Coal Industry Road Workers
Rail Industry Bottling Plants
Power Station Workers Chemical Plants

A lot of equipment can cause damage to the ears when workers are exposed for long periods of time. Classic examples of noisy equipment can be:

Rolling Mills Presses
Steel Rollers Chipping Hammers
Jack Hammers Borers
Scrabblers Rivet Guns
Large Angle Grinders Large Printing Presses
Stihl Saws Spinning Machines
CNC Machines Sewing Machines

Hearing Loss Claims FAQ

I was self employed – can I claim?
We can only help you for periods where you were actually employed by a noisy company.
My company has stopped trading – how do I claim?
Don’t panic, we can investigate who their insurers were and claim directly from the policy of insurance. We have a vast database of noisy employers and their insurer contacts
I think I had more than one noisy employer – how does that work?
We can split the liability between several companies and several insurers. Many people worked for various different employers and worked in noisy environments for many of them - so don’t worry!
How long do I have to claim?
Most people have suffered their damage many years ago so you need to act now and start your claim immediately. There are limitation periods to claim and most are three years from the date of knowledge of negligence. This can be calculated in many different ways so we cannot stress enough how urgent it is that you get in touch now. Your time limit may already be approaching fast!

Steven D of Barnsley

I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for the continued excellent service you and your team have provided over the past few years. On the rare occasions when I have needed updates or questions answered, you’ve been amazingly quick in responding to my needs. I am 100 percent satisfied with your service and would certainly recommend Your Lawyers to friends and family.

John Dunn of Hampshire

A great service from begining to end. Would recommend especially for a first time claim.

Paul Mowbray of Kent

I felt I had to write this at the conclusion of my claim which, as you know, was very involved and unusual. I was very pleased with the way in which you handled it all and your compassion with my circumstances. I understand that we could have pushed this further but I believe that I have made the right decision given the fact that this could have gone on even longer than it did with, maybe, not a successful outcome. I would, therefore, like to thank all the staff involved and the thoughtful way in which you handled my case. I know there are a lot of people who worked on this and it would be unfair to name anybody in particular but I am very grateful to all of you for your time, patience,

Theresa Muggleton of Mid Glamorgan
