Industrial Deafness

Industrial Deafness, also known as Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL), is a work-related condition that is common in industries where excessive noise is prevalent. Workers who develop NIHL have usually not been given the correct protection or training from their employers to help to prevent the illness developing. If you have NIHL and you think it may be due to poor employment conditions, call our Team of Industrial Disease Solicitors in Skegness, Lincolnshire on 01754 897150 to discuss your claim further or submit your enquiry online.

Exposure to loud noise can occur in a variety of industries including car manufacturing, steel works, ship building, mining, ground and road works, machinery operation, engineering and construction. Our Solicitors have expertise in acting for Clients of many different occupations and due to the nature of the illnesses, they often act for Clients outside of Lincolnshire and throughout the rest of the UK.

The noise levels in workplaces can cause permanent hearing impairment which can lead to many issues for the sufferer such as problems with conversations and other sound related activities. It can also cause noise in the ears such as a ringing or buzzing which is a medical condition known as Tinnitus.
