You are entitled to make a tinnitus claim for compensation if you have developed the condition along with another recognised industrial hearing disease whilst working in an excessively noisy workplace in London.
It is important to remember that tinnitus as an illness on its own is not actually categorised as an industrial disease. You are only able to claim compensation for tinnitus if it is being suffered alongside a further hearing impairment that been induced as a result of excessive noise in the workplace. Your hearing loss compensation award will be adjusted accordingly if tinnitus is an additional complaint along with another hearing disorder that has been caused by exposure to excessive sound levels at work.
Tinnitus as a hearing complaint on its own whether it has been developed as a result or excessive noise levels in the workplace or not will not qualify for a compensation award. You cannot issue claim proceedings against your employer if tinnitus is the only injury or illness you are suffering from as a result of the excessive noise levels in your workplace but if you have tinnitus you could also be suffering from a degree of hearing loss and be unaware of it so it is worth getting your hearing tested.
Even though tinnitus is a very common ailment amongst workers in excessively noisy environments we cannot issue proceedings unless you also have another hearing disorder in association with your tinnitus. Tinnitus symptoms are when the sufferer is constantly hearing a constant buzzing humming or whistling noise; some suffers describe the noise as ?white noise? like the sound generated by unprogrammed radio channels.
