Prolonged exposure to high levels of background noise can have severe and extremely negative consequences on our hearing. Industrial deafness or noise-induced hearing loss is the second most common form of hearing loss after age related loss and can be temporary or permanent.
If the symptoms are found early enough it is possible that they can be treated and measures can therefore be taken to reduce noise in the work environment and no permanent damage would be sustained. However if you have been exposed to noise for long periods of time or the sound levels are particularly high it is possible complete loss of hearing can occur permanently.
Many people also suffer from tinnitus when suffering from hearing loss and whilst tinnitus itself does not give grounds for making a claim for industrial deafness if linked with the loss of hearing in one or both ears can be taken into account. Tinnitus is often described as a continual ringing or white noise that the sufferer is subject to with no sound source.
Making a claim for industrial deafness could never be more simple with the guidance and support of our highly experienced work-related illness specialists at Oakwood Solicitors who can act for you in London or anywhere across the UK.
Miss B had been working in a nightclub for several years that played loud music or often had live bands. The bar at which she worked during her shifts was located close to the stage and she often found that her hearing was muffled after a nights work. She consulted the specialist staff at Oakwood when she noticed that her hearing loss was becoming more permanent and she was suffering symptoms of tinnitus and her doctor had told her that these symptoms were the result of long term exposure to such high noise levels. Our expert team were able to negotiate compensation of £11650 on her behalf.
