Noise induced hearing loss Claims
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

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
- Steel Rollers
- Chipping Hammers
- Jack Hammers
- Rivet Guns
- Large Angle Grinders
- Large Printing Presses
- Stihl Saws
- Spinning Machines
- CNC Machines
