Noise Induced Hearing Loss
Industrial deafness and tinnitus (a constant noise in the ears) are common types of work related injury caused by prolonged exposure to loud or continuous noise from machinery. The occupations most commonly affected are associated with using heavy machinery, manufacturing, construction, agriculture and transport.
Employers have a duty of care to protect the hearing of their employees from excessive noise levels and Heptonstalls Solicitors Yorkshire have experience in obtaining compensation for deafness claims and tinnitus victims from a wide range of occupations and industries.
It is important to contact us as soon as you realise that your deafness may have resulted from your exposure to noise at work as there are time limits to pursuing deafness claims.
