Industrial Deafness Claims

If you are suffering from loss of hearing as a result of your job, and you think your employer's negligence was responsible, you may be eligible to make an industrial deafness claim.

Industrial deafness claims can help alleviate any financial problems associated with hearing damage, such as loss of earnings if you've had to take time off work, and the costs of any medical treatment.

Your responsibilities in preventing industrial deafness

Where an employer has taken all reasonable steps to safeguard their employees, and an employee has sustained industrial deafness because they have chosen not to wear ear protection or carry out the safety procedures according to guidance given to them, the employee themselves may be at fault. In this case, it will not be possible to claim industrial deafness compensation because the employer has not been negligent.

Can I make an industrial deafness claim?

On the other hand, industrial deafness claims can be made if an employer has not taken the necessary steps to prevent industrial deafness.

It's important that if your work is damaging your hearing, you should go and see your doctor as soon as possible. Early signs of hearing loss include:

  • Trouble following a conversation in a room where there's lots of background noise
  • Tinnitus - a ringing in the ears, which can be temporary or permanent
  • You have to turn music, or the TV up to levels that others find too loud

Other points to bear in mind include the fact that wherever possible, industrial deafness claims should be made within three years of first recognising the symptoms of industrial deafness (noise-induced hearing loss).
