We are very confident that we have the ability to settle all qualifying industrial deafness claims successfully.

Hearing loss can be noise induced by the conditions of the workplace if a sufferer’s employer has failed in their duty to protect all employees from harm.

There are always hazards in every workplace even in offices and employers have a legal obligation to carry out a risk assessment in order to ensure that all hazards are eliminated or taken care of. Noise is an extreme hazard as it can destroy a person’s hearing for life. If your employer has not taken care to ensure that your hearing is protected adequately then you are legally entitled to pursue a compensation award. In order to be eligible to make a claim you must start your case within the legal time limit.
