BT Hearing Loss Claims

BT Engineers may be entitled to compensation for Hearing Loss/Deafness

  • Have you suffered deafness or hearing loss due to your work as a BT Engineer?
  • Have you been diagnosed with Tinnitus or have reduced hearing ability?

Our Hearing Loss Experts can help you

We have handled successful compensation claims for hearing loss, hearing damage and deafness suffered by BT engineers which was caused by their work as far back as the 1960s through to the present day. In these compensation claim cases BT has admitted liability for negligently exposing BT engineers and BT telephone installers to high levels of noise, often above 80 decibels.

If you have been exposed to high noise levels whilst using oscillators and amplifiers to trace lines, repair BT lines or install BT phone lines in homes and business premises and have since developed hearing loss or tinnitus, you may be eligible to claim compensation.

Key Information:

We can help BT Engineers Claim Compensation for:

  • personal injury
  • pain and suffering caused by your hearing loss, deafness or tinnitus, and
  • also claim for the costs of hearing aids and other equipment you have had to acquire.

How much is your Hearing Loss Claim worth?

Compensation claim damages for hearing impairments due to working with BT can range from £5,000 to £35,000.

Why Choose our Hearing Loss Team?

As mentioned, your exposure to high noise levels whilst working with BT may have occurred many years ago, but if your hearing loss or tinnitus can be traced back to your time working as a BT engineer or telephone installer then, based on our track record, we should be able to assist you with bringing a hearing loss compensation claim.

BT Engineer receives hearing loss compensation

We recently won £19,000 for a client who was a BT engineer exposed to faulty amplifier and tone sets up to 50 times each day without any ear protection. We also represented an ex-BT worker who now requires hearing aids and suffers mild tinnitus – the compensation claim is expected to pay damages of over £15,000.
