Hearing loss victims who are suffering from noise induced hearing loss (deafness) in the UK are entitled to make a no win no fee occupational deafness claim for the deafness they have developed as a direct result of working in an environment that produces an excessive level of noise.
By seeking legal representation from a qualified and highly dedicated personal injury solicitor from Michael Lewin you are ensuring that the outcome for your case is positive. We can assess your case expertly to see if you qualify for making a claim and we can also give you a rough estimation of the amount of compensation we would expect to be able to secure for your individual occupational hearing loss case.
The government has set a guideline amount of compensation that has to be awarded to hearing loss victims depending on the degree of aural injury they have suffered. Award amounts will vary depending on whether the industrial deafness isintermittent occasional temporary or permanent. The extent of the industrial injury to your ears will also determine the final award amount you will receive.
A medical deafness report carried out by a qualified medical professional has to be performed so we have proof of your deafness and so an accurate compensation award can be calculated. If you have not had your deafness diagnosed professionally then it is unlikely you will have a case. Whether the victim is afflicted in one ear or two and how detrimentally the hearing is affected will play a large part in your final award amount. The award value we estimate you are eligible to gain will just be a guideline amount and is not the actual amount of compensation you will receive for your industrial deafness. The amount of industrial deafness recompense you actually get awarded will depend on the negotiations between us and the person responsible for your hearing loss.

Your award will depend on the hearing loss you are suffering from.

If a victim is suffering from severe deafness and they are totally deaf in both ears and it has been caused by their occupational surroundings victims should expect to receive an award of between fifty and seventy thousand pounds.
