Noise-Induced Hearing Loss Injury Lawyer Glasgow, Scotland

If you are subjected to excessive noise at work this could cause damage to your hearing. If you believe you are suffering from hearing problems caused by your work environment, you could be entitled to compensation if your employer has not taken reasonable steps to protect you. If you need more information and advice on this matter, contact the specialist solicitors at Jones Whyte today for a consultation. We will listen to your situation carefully and let you know whether you have a valid claim.

Are you at Risk of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss?

If you work, or used to work, in a noisy environment, your employer has a legal duty to reduce the risk of you suffering from hearing problems. This means making sure you have the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) – for example, earmuffs and earplugs – making sure you are not exposed to loud noises for prolonged periods of time and ensuring that you receive regular and adequate health checks.

The industries in which employees are exposed to noise hazards include:

  • shipyards;
  • metal works;
  • quarries and mines;
  • textile mills; and
  • manufacturing

It might be that you do not develop the relevant symptoms until much later in life. As long as you contact us within three years of realising that you are suffering a hearing-related condition, the dedicated solicitors at Jones Whyte will advise you on your claim. Even if your employer is no longer trading, a claim might still be possible if your employer’s insurer for the relevant period can be identified.

What can Noise-Induced Hearing Loss Claims Solicitors Claim for?

Depending on the nature of your condition, the expert solicitors at Jones Whyte may be able to claim compensation for the following:

  • tinnitus, which results in a ringing in the ears;
  • mild hearing loss, including difficulty hearing when in noisy environments;
  • moderate hearing loss, which includes having difficulty holding a conversation without a hearing aid;
  • severe hearing loss, which requires the use of a hearing aid; and
  • profound hearing loss, where you rely on lip reading, sign language and other non-verbal communication.

If you are suffering from any of the above conditions, and you think the harm was caused by your employer’s negligence, contact the specialist personal injury solicitors at Jones Whyte today. We can claim for your injury, for the medical treatment you require, for any loss of earnings you have incurred and any other expenses that have arisen.
