Noise Induced Deafness

Noise Induced Deafness

Noise induced deafness is an industrial injury that often occurs while working in loud environments such as mining, engineering and machine operating. It can be caused by either a one off loud noise incident or through a continuous exposure over a long time.

The noise levels in your workplace may cause permanent hearing damage and impairment which was of no fault of your own. Your employer has a duty of care to provide you with the correct protective equipment to minimise the likelihood of impairing your hearing.

If your employer fails in their duty of care to prevent noise induced deafness, you may have a claim against them for compensation.

It is possible to make a claim against your employer if you still work for them and even if they are no longer operating. You can claim for:

  • The injury itself
  • Loss of current and future earnings
  • Medical and care expenses including hearing aids and batteries
  • Any other proven losses sustained as a result of your industrial deafness

Our specialist personal injury solicitors are able to make a claim on your behalf if you are suffering with noise induced deafness. We understand that your everyday life may be significantly effected as a result of your injury so we will seek to achieve the maximum amount of compensation for you.

If you have suffered with noise induced deafness, contact our specialist personal injury department to discuss your options.
