You can make a tinnitus claim for personal injury compensation if excessive noise has led to you suffering from this disorder in association with any other hearing disorder.

It is important to remember that tinnitus alone is not actually classed as an industrial disease. You are only able to claim compensation for tinnitus if it is being suffered alongside a further hearing disorder that has developed as a result of excessive noise in the workplace. Your hearing loss compensation award will be adjusted accordingly if tinnitus is being suffered along with another hearing disorder that has been caused by exposure to excessive sound levels at work.

Tinnitus as a disorder on its own whether it has been developed as a result or excessive sound in the workplace or not will not qualify for a compensation award. You cannot issue claim proceedings against your employer if tinnitus is the only injury or illness you are suffering from as a result of your working conditions.

Even though tinnitus is a very common disorder amongst those that work in excessively noisy environments we cannot issue proceedings unless you also have another hearing disorder alongside. Tinnitus can be identified by the sufferer hearing a constant buzzing humming or whistling noise; some suffers describe the noise as ?white noise? like the sound associated with unprogrammed radio channels.

Mr E made a tinnitus and hearing loss claim after he suffered a loss of hearing and also a constant noise he describes as ?whooshing?. Mr E would not have been able to make a claim for tinnitus alone but because he was diagnosed as suffering with a degree of deafness he was able to make a deafness claim with tinnitus as an associated disorder. Michael Lewin Solicitors were extremely pleased to be able to settle Mr E’s claim in such a timely manner and award him with the compensation he was legally entitled to for the display of neglect quiteopenly admitted by his employers. Mr E received an award of £6350.00 for his hearing loss.
