The specialist industrial deafness lawyers from Michael Lewin can help you make an industrial hearing loss claim if the excessive noise levels at your place of work have caused damage to your hearing.
Industrial hearing loss can be sustained in a noisy employment environment if an employer has failed to provide employees with a safe work place or vital safety equipment to ensure that any risks to employees hearing are covered. There is little can be done about the excessive sound emissions that radiate from vital machines in the workplace but there is no need for our clients to have suffered the excessive noise without the right protection.
Many of the machines that emit so much noise in the workplace are vital pieces of equipment that are necessary to keep the worlds industries alive. Even though employers can do very little to lessen the noise levels that are emitted from these machines they can do something about the amount of sound waves that are absorbed aurally by the people working amongst them. All employers must give their employees a suitable and safe method of defence from the noise in the workplace that is appropriate for the noise emitted in the workplace.
You should speak to the dedicated industrial deafness lawyers from Michael Lewin as soon as possible after your hearing loss diagnosis. In order to make a claim you have to have medical records of your ear injury; if you have this then you can start the claims process providing your injury can be linked to the noise levels at work.
If you have started to develop a work related ear injury or illness and it can be linked directly to the excessive noise levels at your place of work you can consider making a personal injury claim for the hearing loss you have encountered. If you think your employer has failed to carry out an appropriate risk assessment of the excessive sound emissions in your workplace and consequently they have not provided you with an appropriate level of protection to protect your ears you may need legal advice from us if you are suffering from damage to your aural sense.
