Get the compensation you deserve | No Win, No Fee specialists | Personal Injury legal experts

Industrial deafness and tinnitus can be caused by exposure to significant noise on a daily basis over a number of years. Many different kinds of work environments are so loud that legislation has been passed requiring an employer to provide their employees with appropriate hearing protection. Such environments include, for example, factories, construction/building sites, mining, road works etc.

The level of noise experienced by the individual may be fairly consistent, for example where the employee is permanently employed using drilling equipment. In these circumstances, the level of noise to which the employee has been exposed may be relatively easy to determine.

It may, however, be that the amount of noise to which the employee has been exposed varies on a day to day basis. In these circumstances, it can be a little more difficult to assess the level of risk.


“The Noise at Work Regulations 1989 provide strict noise levels that employers must adhere to.”

 

Vicki Wright, Manager of Personal Injury Department

If you believe that you have suffered temporary or permanent hearing loss, or tinnitus as a result of being exposed to high noise levels at work, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Legal aid is not available for these types of claims and we therefore offer assistance under a No Win No Fee Agreement. For free legal advice, contact our specialist Personal Injury team on 023 92 483322 (Havant) or on 023 80 631111 (Southampton). Alternatively, complete the response e-mail slip.
