If you are currently working or have worked in excessive noise and have hearing loss, you may be eligible for compensation for the hearing loss. There are two types of compensation; you may be eligible for hearing aids and services to treat your hearing loss and financial compensation for damages.
Loud noise can permanently damage your hearing. This is called noise-induced hearing loss or sometimes referred to as industrial hearing loss. The type of compensation you may receive will depend on the percentage hearing loss that is due to noise and is calculated from your hearing test. Generally, if you have a hearing loss greater than 7% you can make a claim for 'Medical and Like' expenses and if accepted you will be able to receive free hearing aids and services. If your hearing loss is over 10% you can make a claim for monetary compensation and be awarded a lump sum of money.
Do I have a hearing loss that may be claimable for workers compensation?

We can also refer you on to lawyers who offer 'no win, no fee' service and who will be able to advise you on the type of compensation you may be eligible for.
