If you would like to make a claim for compensation after you have been adversely affected by hearing loss then you should look no further than our highly skilled and dedicated solicitors at Oakwood. Our caring and professional staff were delighted to achieve the compensation award on behalf of Mrs S of over £3100.
Mrs S approached Oakwood for assistance in making claim for compensation after she began to suffer from struggling to hear family and friends when there is background noise in the same room. We were able to arrange a medical assessment of Mrs S’s hearing condition. This condition confirmed that our client currently suffers from mild noise induced hearing loss (deafness) and a moderate degree of noise related to tinnitus.
We were able to present the medical report to the defendant’s as part of the evidence pack that we put together on your behalf to support our client’s claim for compensation.
We managed to claim compensation for our lovely client Mrs S from London of £3175 and we were able to achieve this fantastic amount of compensation for her without us needing to take the matter to court. The majority of our claims are settled out of court and as such clients should never worry about the stress of pursuing a claim.
I am currently struggling to hear conversations in crowded rooms I believe that my workplace could be to blame for the problems that I’m experiencing; can Oakwood assist me in making a successful claim for compensation for the hearing loss that I am currently suffering?
There are two Control of Noise at Work Regulations the initial noise at work regulations of 1989 were superseded by the current regulations which are in force which are the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005. These regulations came into force officially on 6 April 2006.
All workplaces which may cause employees to be exposed to noise should make themselves aware of the legal frameworks and regulations that they need to abide by. Lack of knowledge of the law is not seen as a viable defence for employers.
Employers have a duty of care to ensure that staff are given protection to allow them to work in a safe on nurturing environment.
Many clients are unsure if they know be entitled to make a compensation claim for the hearing loss that they are suffering. As a very rough guide if you need to raise your voice above background noise in work to speak to a colleague who is standing 6 feet away from you or less than it is generally deemed that the noise levels in that environment may be excessive.
In many workplace environments such as in construction and factories and in heavy fabrication then it might be expected and anticipated that clients may be more prone to sustaining hearing loss but also more recently we have had many clients approach us who have worked in bars clubs call centres and in jobs related to the music industry.
