Are you due an acoustic trauma payout?
Acoustic shock can cause permanent hearing loss, increased and painful sensitivity to noise and tinnitus.
If you work in a call centre you are advised to check that your employer has put into place adequate protection devices to prevent acoustic trauma incidences from occurring.
If your hearing has been damaged because your employer failed to protect you from harm, you are entitled to claim compensation.
Acoustic trauma is caused by sudden, loud, high pitched noise being shot into the eardrum. It is a relatively new medical condition which started with the creation of call centres.
The majority of acoustic shock injuries that have occurred in the last 20 to 25 years have happened because of faulty or malfunctioning telephones and headsets.
