Industrial Deafness

It is easy to be embarrassed about hearing loss and many people try to avoid dealing with the fact that their hearing is getting worse because they think it is because they are ageing. But what if your hearing loss is directly because of the job you have been doing?

If you have been working in a noisy environment such as a factory, or using noisy tools like a pneumatic drill, then you may be able to make a claim against your employer for industrial deafness.

How Can Shires Law Help You?

We know how upsetting it will be for you to try to come to terms with your condition, but we can help to take the stress out of making a claim and get you the compensation you deserve.

Making a claim may seem like a complicated and drawn out process but we will do all we can to make it as stress free as possible. It is really important that you understand exactly how it works, so we won’t use legal jargon, just plain and simple language.

We are a small firm by choice and we only employ qualified solicitors to deal with your claim, unlike the large firms who employ unqualified ‘claims handlers’. We know how important it is to get to know you and how your condition affects you, so we would like to meet you if we can. We also offer all our clients a free consultation to help us to be clear about where you stand legally and so you can make sure that you are happy for us to represent you.

Following a recent law change, you are now not able to recover all of your legal costs from the other side. You can get most of them back though and you should not let this deter you from making a claim for the compensation you deserve. You won’t have to pay a penny until your claim is brought to a conclusion.
