Do you need compensation to help you come to terms with the fact you are suffering from industrial deafness?

You are one of nearly quarter of a million employees in the UK who is experiencing some sort of hearing difficulties as a direct result of your employment. If you are working in a noisy environment and you have not been provided with adequate protection or you were exposed to a sudden and loud noise you could be eligible to make a successful personal injury claim with the help of the industrial deafness team from Michael Lewin Solicitors.

Over 15% of the employees in the UK who are suffering from hearing problems will be suffering from tinnitus. Tinnitus is a condition that is often associated with excessive noise levels in the workplace. It can lead to a sufferer thinking that an external noise is constantly buzzing humming or ringing; this noise is constant and there is no break from it. Some sufferers may have intermittent noises but this is still just as much of a hindrance. Tinnitus is usually a result of prolonged exposure to loud noises and is an industrial related disease. Somepeople do however just develop tinnitus for no apparent reason.

If you want to start seeking compensation for the industrial deafness you have developed as a direct result of working in a noisy environment you need to start your claim as soon as possible after a diagnosis has been made. As with all personal injury claims there is a time limit for claiming industrial deafness compensation. Your employer is legally obliged to protect your from harm in the workplace; this includes providing an appropriate level of protection from the noise in your working environment. If your employer has failed to protect you you will need the help of the industrial deafness team at Michael Lewin Solicitors.

If you have developed tinnitus because of your work environment whether it is because you are exposed to loud tools throughout your working day or because you are subjected to loud music in your workingenvironment you are able to make a claim for your injuries if your employer did not prevent you from sustaining the injuries. If your employer did not offer you adequate protection from your noisy workplace then they are liable for your injuries.
