Serving in the armed forces can often mean working in a noisy environment. Most will get used to the excessive noise after a while, but exposure can lead to very serious consequences if the proper safety measures are not taken.
If you've experienced noise-induced hearing loss while in the military because of a negligent approach to hearing protection, then our solicitors could help you claim compensation.
We've successfully pursued cases of noise-induced hearing loss caused by:
Gun and artillery fire
Vehicle engine noise
Hearing loss is not the only symptom caused by excessive noise exposure. Tinnitus and hyperacusis (heightened sensitivity to everyday sounds) are also frequently caused by these cases, and you could claim compensation for these conditions too.
In any hearing damage case, we consider the volume, frequency, duration and intensity of the noise that you were exposed to, and we are able to interpret audiograms and consult with medical experts to assess the damage to your hearing. We have a proven track record with hearing damage cases both for military personnel and civilians.
If you’ve experienced noise-induced hearing loss while serving in any capacity in the Army, Navy, RAF or Special Forces you may be able to claim compensation. You could also claim if you were injured while serving in the Army Reserve (formerly the Territorial Army), Navy Reserve or RAF Reserve.
There has been a rising number of deafness claims made by armed forces personnel in the last few years, with many allegations of inadequate ear protection being made. If you've experienced hearing damage, call us on
