Work-Related Deafness & Noise-Induced Hearing Problems
Noise Induced Hearing Loss Compensation Claim Lawyers
Many different jobs expose workers to loud noises for prolonged periods of time. With the right protective equipment, hearing can be safeguarded and remain intact.
Employers have a legal duty to provide workers in loud environments with such protective equipment, but sadly many of them do not live up to this obligation.
Sheldon Davidson Solicitors can help you make a claim if your hearing has been lost or damaged as a result of your working environment.
Noise-Induced hearing loss
The Health & Safety Executive estimates that there are 18,000 people in the UK whose hearing has been damaged or made worse by their working environment.
High-risk work environments include:
- Building sites
- Factories and mills
- Oil refineries
- Pubs and nightclubs
Of course, there are many more jobs that expose employees to prolonged noise, and everyone is affected differently. We can quickly ascertain whether or not you have a claim.
Our Noise-Induced hearing loss test clinics
We run our own noise-induced hearing loss clinics. If you think your hearing has been damaged as a result of the work you do, or the work you did in a previous job, you can book an appointment with us and find out for sure.
We usually hold the test clinics in local hotels or other convenient venues, where you will be greeted in the foyer or reception area.
First, you’ll take a hearing test with a qualified audiologist, which will allow us to identify the extent of damage you’ve suffered to your hearing, and whether it has been caused or exacerbated by too much exposure to loud noises.
You will then sit down with one of our advisors, who will go through a simple questionnaire with you – they’ll ask you about your job history and what the noise levels were like in each of your previous working environments.
If the advisor concludes that you have grounds for a claim, they’ll pass you on to a solicitor in our specialist noise-induced hearing loss department.
