Industrial deafness solicitors are the professionals who specialize in the law relating to personal injuries or accidents suffered by the workers in the industry or at workplace. According to the law in the United Kingdom a worker having suffered from an accident at the workplace, which also includes industrial deafness, can claim a compensation amount from the employer if he or she is able to prove that the injury has been caused due to negligence or improper preventive measures on part of the employing company. An industrial deafness solicitor is the right professional to seek legal advice from, to prepare documents for claim, and to represent you in the court if you have been exposed to the industrial deafness.

The compensation amount you can claim in the event of industrial deafness suffered by you at the workplace depends upon the extent and type of the injury.

Types of Industrial Deafness and Estimated Compensation Amounts

Industrial deafness has been categorized into four types according to the degree of injury and the recoverability. The major types are temporary hearing loss, permanent hearing loss, acoustic trauma, and Tinnitus. An industrial deafness event may accompany more than one of these types. Thus, the amount you can expect in event of the industrial deafness can be estimated according to the following guidelines:

1. Temporary Hearing Loss with Tinnitus

In case of occasional tinnitus with some hearing loss, the claim may range from £4,800 to £8,000 as of the year 2009-2010 figures. It may range from £8,000 to £19,000 in case of more serious tinnitus and major but temporary hearing loss, while in case of sever tinnitus and serious hearing loss, you can claim up to £30,000.

2. Permanent Hearing Loss with Tinnitus

In case of complete hearing loss in one ear along with tinnitus, the claim amount is up to £29,000. For a permanent hearing loss in both ears with tinnitus goes up to £70,000.

What Industrial Deafness Solicitors Can Do For You

The industrial deafness solicitors help you not only in preparing documents for filing the claims but they also know the best medical experts to use to prove your claim. Since they are familiar with the most recent court decisions for industrial deafness claims, they are always in better position to lead you in your compensation claim process.

It is not a good idea to go to file your claim with the help of a professional industrial injury solicitor as the employers do also have solicitors at their payroll or have working contracts with them, and they play their tricks to avoid the liability. Having employed an industrial deafness solicitor, you can eliminate the chances of your employer evading the liability.

However, while engaging a solicitor, it is a good idea to get quotes from various solicitor firms, compare the costs. You may also look for testimonials to ensure that the solicitor you are going to engage has a good reputation and has the knowledge and experience in related law. This will make your claims more likely to be successful.
