Industrial Deafness Claims
Inner ear damage is the cause of both Industrial Deafness and Tinnitus. The most common cause of inner ear damage for industrial deafness claims is loud and sustained noise; normally found in a workplace and connected to certain industries.
There are three different types of industrial deafness claims. These are permanent hearing loss, Tinnitus and acoustic trauma.
Permanent hearing loss happens as a result of sustained exposure to loud noise without the use of ear defenders.
Tinnitus can be a debilitating condition where sufferers can hear a whooshing, ringing, buzzing or whistling sound in one or both ears, sometimes permanently. This can affect the ability to concentrate, sleep and can cause problems with hearing.
Acoustic trauma is less common and is caused by sudden, unexpected loud noise. This can happen to call centre workers using a headset due to sudden feedback and can perforate an eardrum in extreme circumstances.

How long will my claim take?
