Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) affects many people who’ve worked in a noisy place without the right protection or training from their employer. Our solicitors specialise in industrial deafness claims and we could help you claim compensation.
How Do I Make An Industrial Deafness Claim?
To make a claim you should contact us as soon as you realise your hearing loss could be linked to your work. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your situation and if we think you have a case. If you decide to claim we’ll discuss ways to pay like
No Win No Fee agreements.
We’ll gather information and contact those responsible for your hearing loss (like your employer) to see if they accept responsibility. If they do, we’ll try and get interim compensation payments. These are paid to you before your claim is settled and can help pay for things like medical treatment or travel costs.
If you do make an industrial deafness claim with us, we’ll let you know exactly what we’re doing at every stage, and what we need from you.
How Much Compensation Can I Claim For Industrial Deafness?
How much compensation you’ll get will depend on your individual circumstances. Our lawyers will look at things like:
The seriousness of your hearing loss and if it was caused by working in a noisy environment
If your employer followed the right procedures to protect you
Any medical and travel expenses you've had to pay
Your care and support needs – now and in the future.
We’ll make sure the compensation you receive is enough to help pay for the best care and support you need to cope with industrial deafness.
Is There A Time Limit In Making A Hearing Loss Claim?
Usually you need to make a claim within three years of realising your hearing loss might be linked to your work. If you worked outside the UK, then the time limit can be shorter.
If you have any concerns or questions about the time limit for claiming compensation, call our team today on
0800 056 4110 or contact us online for free initial advice and to talk through your options. Can I Make A No Win No Fee Industrial Deafness Claim?
Most of the industrial hearing loss claims we handle are on a no win no fee basis. This means that there’s nothing to pay upfront and nothing to pay if your claim is unsuccessful.*
We’ll discuss other funding options with you too, like Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) or if you’re covered through membership of a trade union. We’ll explain each process clearly and advise which we think is most suitable for you.
