If there is significant damage to your hearing and it can be linked to your work environment there is a good chance that Oakwood Solicitors can make a claim on your behalf.
Ms S was an innocent victim of over exposure to dangerous levels of sound in the workplace. Even though Ms S did not operate one of the machines that emitted so much noise she should have been given ear protection to mask out the noise. Ms S was never told to wear ear protection throughout the entire 17 years she worked for the company. As a result she now finds it difficult to watch television with the volume at a normal level and can only hear a conversation if the person is speaking very loud. Ms S was awarded a total of £7120.20 in compensation.

How do I know if my case is eligible for an award?
Speaking to a solicitor from Oakwood is the best and most accurate way of determining if your case can get started by a professional solicitor. The following guidelines may give an indication if you are eligible to make a claim:
? You have been professionally diagnosed with a hearing disorder and you have a written record of the report.
? You were exposed whilst at work to dangerous levels of noise either constantly or intermittently.
? You can prove that your employer did not take reasonable measures to protect you from the exposure to noise in the workplace.
It is not guaranteed that your claim for person injury compensation will be accepted based on the above as there are other factors that may apply to your case that could affect your ability to claim but if the above applies to you you should definitely speak to a solicitor.
