Industrial Deafness Claims
Industrial deafness is an unfortunately frequent, and very serious, side effect for many people employed in industries where excessive noise is common, including demolition, construction and manufacturing. Deafness can develop over time, or can follow a single exposure to very excessive noise.
Here at Your Personal Injury Partner we understand the impact of industrial deafness on both a career and personal life. Deafness can be debilitating, and leave people unable to carry on with their work or enjoy the same hobbies and interests as before.
If you’re suffering from industrial deafness which has been caused by, or is partly a result of, your working conditions, you should consider making a claim for compensation. Contact our specialist team today on 01782 608 744 or fill in our contact form and we’ll be in touch.

The Health and Safety Executive sets out strict guidelines over noise in the workplace and provides both daily and weekly levels which are deemed safe – if your employer is aware that you are going to be exposed to excessive noise and does not provide ear defenders or other safety equipment they are breaking the law.
If it can be proven that your employer was aware of the risk you were at and failed to take action, your compensation amount could increase.
