Evidence Needed for a Hearing Loss Claim

Did Exposure to Loud Noise at Work Cause Hearing Loss?

In order to establish liability (fault), our Industrial Disease Solicitors will need to investigate whether you were exposed to a level of noise capable of causing damage to your hearing over a sufficient length of time.

Industrial deafness or tinnitus is often the result of working in a noisy environment over a prolonged period, and people working in industries such as manufacturing, construction, engineering and shipbuilding are susceptible to work-related hearing loss.

However, you don’t have to have had extended exposure to loud noise at work in order to develop industrial hearing loss. Indeed, your hearing could be damaged if you’re exposed to a short burst of high frequency or high intensity sound at work. This is known as acoustic shock and is common amongst engineers who typically wear headsets.

With the above information, our Industrial Disease Solicitors can put together a case and approach the employer or their insurer on your behalf seeking compensation for your injury.
