Hearing Loss Claims

If you have suffered full or partial hearing loss from excessive noise in the workplace then you may be entitled to compensation. Your employer has a duty of care to protect you from excessive noise with sufficient health and safety procedures and the correct equipment.

Many industrial hearing loss claims are made against businesses that aren’t trading any longer as the impact of being subjected to excessive noise may be longer term.

At DA Martin we have years of experience helping people claim compensation for hearing loss claims.
