If you have suffered hearing problems as a result of exposure to excessive noise at work and you have only become aware of your symptoms within the last 3 years you could be entitled to make a claim for injuries or losses resulting from that accident through our 'No win No Fee' policy.
Duty of Care
The fact is that your employer holds a duty of care to ensure that their workplace meets a minimum safety standard including protecting your ears and hearing whilst doing your job.
Breach of Duty
If your workplace does not meet the minimum safety standard required by failing to take reasonable steps to ensure your safety whilst at work then it is likely that they have breached their statutory duty.
If your employer has breached their duty of care and you suffer an injury as a result, you can claim compensation and recover any loss of earnings and subsequent losses.
Size doesn't matter
Your employer is responsible for your health & safety at work regardless of how big or small they are.
Examples of noisey industries include:

Employers Liability Insurance:
Did you know that all employers must have Employers Liability Insurance. This is a legal requirement.
When making a claim against your employer, your employer will have an insurance policy in place to deal with this.
