If you have worked in a noisy environment and your hearing has deteriorated as a result, you may be entitled to make a hearing loss claim. Our expert solicitors provide no win, no fee legal advice to employees who have suffered from industrial deafness caused by their job.
We understand the devastating effect that occupational deafness, or noise-induced hearing loss can have on your life and future career prospects, which is why we will work tirelessly to claim the compensation you deserve.
As award-winning legal experts, based in offices around Yorkshire, we are widely recognised for our practical and helpful legal advice. We are proud of our track record, and have been providing legal counsel for more than a century.
There are many different risks to hearing for individuals who work in noisy environments. Industrial deafness can occur following continuous exposure to loud noise caused by machinery, or by exposure to very high pitched noise.
Our solicitors will work tirelessly to help you claim compensation after being exposed to excessive noise in your place of work. We have represented individuals who have been affected by hearing loss after working in the following roles:
We will do our utmost to ensure you are able to secure the compensation you deserve. Operating under a no win, no fee arrangement, our solicitors will help to build a strong case that gives you the best possible chance of a successful claim.
Any compensation secured will help to cover earnings you have lost as a result of time required off work, as well as any medical treatment you have needed. Making a claim will also help to hold those responsible for your industrial hearing loss to account, meaning that safer working practices are rolled out to prevent similar incidents in the future.
Workers are protected under the Noise at Work Regulations 1989, which informs employers of the steps they must take to ensure their employees are protected from excessive noise in the workplace.
It is your employer’s responsibility to carry out a noise assessment in any scenario where the employee is likely to be exposed to high noise levels. They must ensure workers are not exposed to noise in excess of 80-85 decibels, and should provide protective equipment where possible.
If you believe you have suffered from hearing loss due to the negligence of your employer, you will be eligible to make a claim.
You can rest assured that your hearing loss claim will be handled with the utmost diligence and care. We have been providing legal services for members of the public across Yorkshire and further afield for more than 150 years. During this time, we have earned a strong reputation as a leading solicitor and are confident we can help you.
