Industrial injuries: making a tinnitus compensation claim.
If your work has caused you to suffer tinnitus, compensation solicitors at Imperium Law can help you make a claim against your employer.
Tinnitus is usually caused by damage to the ear, and is a difficult condition to live with.
There are around five million people affected by tinnitus in the UK. Some suffers have been subjected to loud noise over a long period of time through their job. Musicians, transport, factory and construction workers are most prone to suffering from tinnitus.
Our solicitors can help you make a tinnitus compensation claim.
It is estimated that only around a fifth of those suffering from this devastating condition ever consult a doctor to address the issue. Drugs can be prescribed to reduce the symptoms, but rarely do they deliver full relief.
If you are suffering from tinnitus because your employer failed to protect your health and safety, then you are entitled to make a compensation claim against them.
How much tinnitus compensation could you receive?
The amount of compensation to be paid out is based on several factors which include:
- How the condition affects your quality of life.
- How much you have spent on medical treatment.
- Your loss of earnings due to the condition.
- The psychological effects of your having tinnitus.
- How tinnitus affects you now, and how it is likely to affect you in the future.
If you feel you have a case for compensation, speak to one of our specialist solicitors to find out more about making a claim and how much of a payout you could receive.
