Tinnitus claims

Most of us will have experienced tinnitus (hearing noises that don’t come from an outside source) for a short period, however more serious and permanent symptoms, including deafness, can occur when people are exposed to loud noise for prolonged periods.

According to the Health and Safety executive, “Some 17,000 people in the UK suffer deafness, ringing in the ears or other ear conditions caused by excessive noise at work.”

Employers must take appropriate steps to protect their employees from over-exposure to noise and from other dangers to hearing such as acoustic shock from an unexpected loud noise.  Where appropriate, protective equipment should be provided.

Noise hazards are present across a wide variety of industries. If your hearing has been damaged as a result of your job, then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
