Michael Lewin Solicitors can help you make a personal injury claim for compensation if you hearing has been lefty impaired because of the work you have been doing in a UK industry.
No matter what industry you work in if you are exposed to excessive noise levels in the workplace you could be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation. You are entitled to make a claim if your employer has failed to provide you with the proper equipment to protect your ears from injury. You can also make a claim if your employer has failed to give you the necessary training so you are aware of the dangers of noise in the workplace. A combination of lack of training and lack of equipment is the reason so many people in the UK have been left with hearing difficulties.
Some of these hearing difficulties are permanent others temporary. Some people experience occasional hearing loss or can only hear lower frequency sounds. Hearing loss can be in one ear or both ears and can range from mild hearing loss to total hearing loss. Different levels of compensation are awarded for different types and levels of hearing loss. The amount of compensation you will be awarded if you make a claim will depend on whether one or two ears are affected whether your hearing loss is permanent or temporary how badly your hearing has been damaged and whether you are suffering from a condition called tinnitus in addition to your hearing loss.
Michael Lewin Solicitors can guarantee that no matter what the nature of your hearing injury you will receive the compensation you are entitled to.
If your hearing has been impaired by excessive noise levels in the workplace you are legally entitled to make a claim in the UK for the damage to your hearing
. No one should have to risk exposure to anything dangerous in the workplace because all employers are required to carry out a health and safety assessment of the workplace so that they can eliminate or prepare for any hazards that are present. If an employer has not made provisions for members of staff so that their safety is cared for then they are liable should any illness or injury be contracted as a result of the workplace conditions.
Even in places like the army it is common for soldiers to suffer damage to their hearing even though you would have expected them to receive the appropriate training and equipment to save their hearing from damage. One ex-soldier Mr J came to us for help because he claimed his superiors in the army had not provided him with adequate protection from the noise exposure he was subjected to whilst he was serving. Michael Lewin Solicitors were happy to take on Mr J’s case and he was successfully awarded £21000.00 for the terrible damage that had been done to his hearing.
