Tinnitus and acoustic shock

Tinnitus and acoustic shock are types of industrial deafness. They usually occur in the workplace through excessive noise without adequate breaks, or lack of protective head gear.

The symptoms for tinnitus and acoustic shock include:

  • Loud ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Deafness
  • Muffled conversations
  • Unable to hear television properly
  • Increased sensitivity to sounds
  • Headaches

Your claim

Causes of hearing loss occur from experiencing loud noises, particularly over a long period of time. However, some people can suffer from industrial deafness after a single incident of exposure to excessive noise (e.g. an explosion).

Thousands of UK employees each year report hearing problems, or some form of industrial deafness. Express Solicitors understand the issues concerned and can use their extensive experience to achieve the compensation that you deserve, so that you can get your life back on track.

Claims of this nature will be brought through the Noise at Work Regulations 2005, Protective Work Equipment Regulations, Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations, and Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations.
