Noise Induced Hearing Loss
Are you suffering from Work Related Hearing Loss?... You may be entitled to compensation.
Were you a worker in a noisy workplace? Have you worked in construction, engineering, coal mines, ship-building, foundries, factories, the motoring industry or quarries?
Was noise just ‘part of your job’? You weren’t given hearing protection or, if you were, it just wasn’t good enough?
Do you now miss parts of conversation, need to turn the volume up on the TV or can’t hear the phone ring?
If the answer is yes - you may be suffering from Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) which is caused by excessive noise exposure.
Making a Claim for Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL).
Employees have the right to a safe working environment. If you have developed an ailment or disability over time because your employers did not protect you properly, then NIHL is an irreparable condition which you should be compensated for.

I no longer work for that Employer and they closed down many years ago. Can I still make a claim?
Hearing loss may take many years to develop or become noticeable. You can still make a claim against a former employer if you no longer work for them or it has been many years since you did. You have three years to make a compensation claim, starting from when you first noticed symptoms and thought that they might have been caused by your work.
What hearing conditions can I claim for?
We have helped many clients make successful claims for a variety of hearing conditions including:
• Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) / Industrial Deafness
• Acoustic shock – (sudden loud noise)
What will happen if I make a claim against my current employer?
By law, all employers must have Employers’ Liability Insurance in place to pay compensation to their workers, injured or made ill at work. Employers are protected by this insurance so you should not worry about losing your job or feel guilty that the company will stop trading because of your claim. Our trained specialists will help you make an informed decision.
