If you have developed industrial deafness from your place of work because you have been exposed to high and dangerous levels of noise you are legally entitled under UK law to pursue compensation from the person that put you in a position where your hearing was likely to be damaged.
Your hearing is very likely to be damaged if you are frequently exposed to high and damaging levels of noise. If you work in an environment where there is a constant noise of over 90db or intermittent noises with an output of over 140dB then you are at great risk from developing occupational deafness. Occupational deafness does not develop overnight. It takes time for the noise levels to do permanent damage to the inner workings of the ear and by the time you notice that your hearing is deteriorating it could be too late to rectify the situation. If your hearing has been damaged beyond repair and your employer is to blame for the damage to your hearing then you should consider making a claim for compensation it will not unfortunately help you regain the hearing you have lost but it may help you come to terms with the fact that a third party caused your deafness to occur in the first place.
Mr T made an industrial hearing loss claim for the moderate hearing loss he developed as a result of being unprotected from the dangerous noise levels at his pace of work. Mr T’s claim met the relevant criteria for making a claim and he made his claim within the three year time limit so he was awarded a total of £11345.60.
