The Hearing Loss and Industrial Deafness Claims Process
With Simpson Millar, at the start of your work-related hearing loss or industrial deafness claim, you’ll be sent an initial pack which includes Forms of Authority, which allow our Solicitors to access your work history from HMRC, your medical records and the pack also includes a funding questionnaire.
Your Industrial Disease Solicitor will first need to confirm that you have work-related hearing loss and you will therefore need to have a hearing test. These hearing tests are free on the NHS and can be arranged without a referral from your GP.
Your Industrial Disease Solicitor will also discuss what noise you were exposed to during your employment, so they can assess if this would’ve been sufficient to potentially cause work-related hearing loss. Your Industrial Disease Solicitor will review your medical records to see if you’ve sought medical advice about your hearing loss.
