Considering Making A Claim For Hearing Loss Compensation?

Hearing is one of the key senses we take for granted, but hearing loss is something which affects as many as one in six of the UK population. As we all live for longer the numbers of people suffering from some degree of hearing loss is increasing, and if you or someone you know has suffered hearing loss as a consequence of an industrial injury or any type of accident which was not your fault, you may be entitled to seek compensation.

One of the most common types of hearing loss is tinnitus. Tinnitus is often described as a constant ringing sound in the ears, which is either constant or comes and goes. There is no cure for tinnitus, and the success of treatments depends on the individual concerned. Tinnitus can seriously affect an individual’s quality of life and can affect people of any age.

Occupational Noise Induced Hearing Loss

Hearing Loss CompensationIn many cases, tinnitus is caused by Occupational Noise Induced Hearing Loss (ONIHL) which is hearing loss due to working for prolonged periods in noisy factories and other working environments without proper ear protection. Regulations regarding noise levels at work only came into force in the late 1980s, so people who were working before this time in noisy factories may be able to claim. Employees who were working after this time but were not given proper ear defenders or other equipment also have grounds to bring a case against their employer.

Personal Injury Claim Time Limits

Usually, any claims for compensation have to be started within 3 years of the injury. With tinnitus or other hearing loss, the situation is slightly different. The rules say that claimants have three years to start a claim from the date they first realised that they had hearing loss. Many of us put up with some degree of ringing in the ears or hearing loss for years before seeing the GP, but it is essential to seek medical advice and start your claim as soon as possible.

It is important to seek professional legal advice from a personal injury lawyer who has experience in helping clients through the hearing loss personal injury compensation claim process.
