Loss of Hearing Compensation

The process of getting loss of hearing compensation can be difficult but we are here to make it as straightforward as possible. In order to be successful in your claim, there are a few criteria that you need to meet with regards to your situation. Some of these include:

  • A medical expert must confirm that you are suffering from tinnitus and/or industrial deafness.
  • You must show that your condition has been caused through exposure to a specific noise.
  • You need to show that your employer could have predicted you would suffer from noise-induced hearing loss at the time of exposure.
  • You have to show that your employer did not adequately protect you from the noise.

If you meet these conditions you will be able to claim for compensation in Carrickfergus from your employer. In some cases this kind of deafness does not arise until many years after the noise exposure. By this point many people put the hearing problems down to old age and don’t realise that it could be due to their previous work. The condition can usually not be reversed and many people end up needing a hearing aid to help.

Another issue which can be brought on by using industrial tools is vibration white finger and we can also help you make a claim for this.

Tinnitus Compensation

Tinnitus is a noise-induced condition which creates a buzzing sound in your ears; this can sometimes be constant and make it difficult to get to sleep. It also affects the sufferer’s quality of life as it impacts the enjoyment of hobbies like listening to music or reading. In some cases it can also cause depression and anxiety, but there is no cure for the condition. It can be helped with a device which masks the noise and makes the buzzing sound less intense.

You may be able to apply for tinnitus compensation in Carrickfergus if you believe the problem has been caused by excessive noise at your workplace. Once again you will need to speak to your doctor and ask them to carry out a test and give you a diagnosis before you make your claim.
