If you suffer a hearing impairment or complete deafness that is noise-induced resulting from prolonged exposure to excessive noise in the workplace in London or elsewhere in the UK you may be entitled to compensation and should speak with the experienced professionals at Oakwood Solicitors to find out if you are eligible to pursue a claim on a ?no win no fee? basis with our expert help.
Miss H was subjected to extreme noise levels on a daily basis whilst working in nightclubs for around 15 years. She contacted the professionals at Oakwood Solicitors and our team of industrial deafness specialists were able to help her pursue her claim for compensation. The constant exposure to extremely loud music each night without sufficient time for her ears to recover in between had resulted in her suffering from mild hearing loss in both ears and noise related tinnitus.
During the time of her employment Miss H was not made aware of the effects that working in the constantly noisy environment could have on her hearing and was not offered any form of protection for her ears.
Temporary hearing loss can occur when a person is subjected to constant loud noise over 75dB over a period of several hours but you can usually make a full recovery without any permanent damage if you are able to recover in quieter environments for reasonable periods of time. Once the hair cells in the ears deteriorate and are not able to replenish more permanent irreversible hearing loss can set in.
Over 250000 UK workers are affected by some degree of hearing impairment due to constant exposure to high noise levels in their working environment in London and across the UK and if you are one of them you could be eligible to compensation if your employers did not follow correct procedures or provide you with safety equipment or training to protect your ears. The experts at Oakwood Solicitors can offer no obligation advice regarding your case and assess your eligibility to make a claim on a ?no win no fee? basis in a matter of minutes over the phone.
If you like Miss H were frequently exposed to high levels of noise in your place of work and were not provided with any protective gear or training relating to working in noisy conditions you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
Oakwood Solicitors took on Miss H’s claim on a ?no win no fee? basis after she contacted our experienced team to discuss her case. Our experts were able to recover compensation of £11850 on her behalf.
