Industrial Hearing Loss Compensation Amounts
Industrial hearing loss claims can vary drastically depending on the severity and the circumstances. There are no set amounts for industrial deafness compensation payments in Bristol, but what we can do if you want rough estimates is to talk with you on the phone first and then give some examples of what you could be due.
Until you have been properly assessed by medical professionals and spoken with one of our personal injury solicitors you won’t know the full extent of compensation available.
What Is Industrial Deafness?
Losing your hearing due to your work environment is more common than you might think. Industrial deafness (sometimes referred to as occupational deafness or noise induced hearing loss) occurs when workers are exposed to loud noises or noise pollution over a sustained period in their place of work.
Your employers are legally obliged to ensure that you are protected as much as possible from noise, and the 2005 Control of Noise at Work Regulations have various policies and procedures that should be followed. If you believe that your employer is at fault for your deafness and hearing problems then it’s very likely that you could successfully claim for personal injury compensation.
The types of professions that are commonly found to be affected in this way, and the types of workers that our solicitors and lawyers represent include:
- Call centre operatives
- Mine workers
- Building site and construction workers
- Quarry workers
- Ship builders and workers
- Music professionals
Thankfully it’s possible to treat the condition if the problem is diagnosed early enough in most cases. However, some victims do have long-lasting hearing problems that are life-changing.
Whatever the degree of your hearing loss you should call us today for a free telephone consultation about possible compensation. Please note that we also have a section on our website dedicated to work place accident claims in Bristol and industrial accident claims.
