About Tinnitus

Symptoms of work related tinnitus have been recognised as an occupational health hazard for many years. If your job or workplace has exposed you to noise and not provided any, or any adequate, hearing protection such as ear plugs or ear defenders, then you could be entitled to claim.  Potentially any worker who, through their employment, has had to work in a noisy environment could be at risk.

Your employer is under a legal duty to ensure your well being and protection in the work place and to minimise the risk of exposure. If you are suffering from tinnitus, you may have grounds for a no win, no fee claim.

There are many occupations that can potentially lead to tinnitus exposure including;

  • Groundworkers
  • Labourers
  • Engineers
  • Fabricators/Welders
  • Royal Navy workers
  • Printers

and many more.

FAQs

Here are some common questions and answers about tinnitus.  If your question is not answered here, please use the form on the right-hand side and one of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

How is Tinnitus Caused?

If your job involves working in a noisy environment, it is possible that you may have developed symptoms of tinnitus. Such exposure has been regarded as an occupational hazard for many years and your employer should have taken steps to minimise your exposure.  These preventative steps include providing protective equipment such as ear plugs or ear defenders and soundproofing machinery.  If your employer has not taken such steps then this may amount to negligence and has put you at risk as a result.

Are There Different Types Of Tinnitus Symptoms?

Yes. Tinnitus can take the form of a ringing in the ears, or a high pitch tone, or a rushing sound.  You may have grounds for a claim if you are suffering from these type of symptoms that have resulted from the work that you have carried out.

Can I make a claim?

You need not be still employed by your employer to make a tinnitus claim. You don’t need to have had a formal diagnosis of your illness or to have received medical treatment for your condition in order to make a claim. If you have suffered tinnitus, we will give you free, no obligation advice as to whether you have a claim.

What do I have to pay?

Since our firm was established, we prided ourselves on our clients receiving 100% of their compensation. As solicitors, we claim our legal fees from our opponents on top of any compensation and therefore, we gave the guarantee that our clients receive 100% compensation.

However, following Government changes and the introduction of the Legal Aid, Punishment and Sentencing of Offenders Act which came into force on the 1 April 2013, we are now not able to recover all of our legal fees from our opponent and therefore only on successful cases, we do make a small charge from our client’s compensation. Therefore, if you are successful in your claim there will be a charge of up to 20% (plus 4% VAT) of your compensation. If for whatever reason, you are unsuccessful we will make no charge for our work and therefore our agreement remains a No Win No Fee agreement. Given these rules allow solicitors and claims management companies to charge a fee of up to 50% of the compensation awarded (and we are aware of firms who do this), we think our small deduction is very competitive and keeping in the tradition of ensuring clients get the maximum, and as much of the compensation as possible.

What does “No Win, No Fee” actually mean?

It is simple: if you do not succeed in your claim, you pay nothing.

Will I have to fill out loads of paperwork?

No, we will be able to do most of the necessary paperwork for you. You will have to check the details of your claim before it is submitted, but we will assist you with this.

For no obligation advice, call free on 0800 092 1443 or fill in the form and we’ll call you back.
