Industrial deafness (also referred to as occupational deafness or noise-induced hearing loss) is a condition that results in the loss of hearing due to an individual’s working environment. It can include permanent symptoms or can exist over a prolonged period of time.
Work injury claims
All employers have a duty of care to ensure the overall safety of the workplace. They are required to make sure it’s free from the risk of an accident or injury by ensuring:
Competent workers are employed
Equipment provided to workers complies with safety requirements
They provide adequate clothing and safety equipment when required
All staff are properly trained and supervised
If you have suffered industrial deafness due to your working environment caused by a breach of one of the above duties you may be eligible to make a compensation claim for personal injury in the workplace.
The following is just a guide as to the levels of compensation available for pain and suffering:
Level of hearing loss
Some hearing loss with occasional tinnitus
£4,800 – £8,000
Hearing loss and more serious tinnitus
£8,000 – £19,000
More serious hearing loss and severe tinnitus
£19,000 – £30,000
Total hearing loss in one ear with tinnitus
£19,000 – £30,000
Total hearing loss in both ears with tinnitus

Your personal injury compensation claim may also involve a claim for lost wages, travel expenses, medication and any other reasonable expenses which have been incurred as a result of the accident. This will depend on the individual circumstances of your case.
