If you are considering making a claim for industrial deafness or noise-related hearing loss caused by noisy working conditions to which you were subjected for a prolonged period of time you must be able to prove that the workplace noise levels were of such a level that they were highly likely to have inflicted the injury and that your employers did not take any reasonable action to look after your safety particularly protecting your ears from harm. A medical professional must have diagnosed your hearing loss.
Several factors are taken into consideration when compensation is awarded for noise-related hearing loss. These include whether the victim is suffering from complete deafness or temporary hearing loss if it is in one or both ears and whether there is any tinnitus present. Compensation is worked out accordingly as to the severity of the suffering.

Michael Lewin Solicitors were able to successfully negotiate compensation of £12300 for Mr F who after working as a fettler for two foundries over a period of 31 years during which time he was exposed to the noise of the machinery he worked with constantly discovered he was suffering from hearing loss. Medical professionals confirmed that his moderate hearing loss and mild levels of tinnitus were linked to his previous work. Mr F told is that for many years there was no protective gear provided and that when it was introduced no training was given to make employees aware of the dangers and the use of the ear protection was not enforced.
