If you’ve been affected by noise induced hearing loss and you believe a third party is to blame, come to Beardsells Personal Injury Solicitors to find out about making a NIHL compensation claim.
We have been dealing with Noise Induced Hearing Loss claims for decades and can give you all the help you need in order to receive maximum compensation for your injury.
What is Noise Induced Hearing Loss?
Noise-Induced Hearing Loss, also known as NIHL, occurs when a loud or consistently loud sound damages the inside of one or both of our ears.
NIHL can affect anyone at any age, from children to the elderly. It can be caused by a sudden one-time loud bang, also known as an impulse sound (such as an explosion), or by consistently loud sounds which can be found in places such as woodwork shops or factories.
Often times noise induced hearing loss is caused by:
- Listening to an MP3 Player at a high volume
- Shooting (as a sport for example)
- Frequently attending loud concerts or gigs
- Frequent use of loud tools such as drills
NIHL may not be noticeable straight away, as it can occur gradually over time.
Claim Compensation for Noise Induced Hearing Loss
Our hearing is one of the many things we take for granted. Unfortunately, it’s also a lot more sensitive than we assume and can be damaged quite easily.
If you have spent time working in a considerably noisy environment and you believe your NIHL is a result of this, you could be entitled to claim compensation for noise induced hearing loss, even if you aren’t working there any more.
Your employer has a responsibility to provide you with safety equipment, such as ear muffs, to avoid these kinds of injuries. If they failed to do so, you are most likely eligible to make a NIHL claim.
If you believe you could be entitled to claim noise induced hearing loss compensation, get in touch with Beardsells Personal Injury Solicitors now to find out how you can make a claim.
We can assess your claim free of charge and inform you as to whether your NIHL claim is eligible, and how much compensation you could receive.
Remember – we work on a no win no fee basis, so you’ve nothing to lose.
