Ear & Hearing – Industrial Injury Claim

Many people will suffer from damage to their ears and hearing, either through physical injury or exposure to loud noise. The ears are incredibly important in helping us go about our daily lives. Not only are they essential to our hearing, they also help us balance. If this area becomes damaged, then your hearing and ability to drive and walk can be seriously affected.

Each ear is made up of three different parts: the outside of the ear is called the pinna, the middle ear contains three small bones and the eardrums, and the inner area, known as the cochlea. Damage to the eardrum through puncturing or noise, or other internal structures, can cause tinnitus, ringing in the ears, and even deafness.

The ear can be damaged in several different ways. Below are some of these causes, but there are many more:

  • Loud levels of noise
  • Explosions
  • Serious road traffic accidents
  • Head injuries caused by falls
  • Sports injuries
  • Eardrum damage through objects entering the ear
  • Injuries from animals

Sometimes it can be difficult to realise that you have a hearing problem, as symptoms may develop over time. The following list of difficulties could indicate that you have an on-going issue with your hearing.

  • Whistling, buzzing or ringing in your ears (Tinnitus)
  • Loss of hearing
  • Problems conversing with friends or family
  • Trouble focusing your hearing in noisy areas
  • Turning up the television or radio over time
  • Difficulty hearing the doorbell ring

If you have been exposed to loud levels of noise at your place of work, or have been employed in a noisy environment in the past, or you have noticed one or more of the above symptoms, you may have developed a hearing problem, and you may be able to claim compensation.

At Express Solicitors, our specialist serious injury department has years of experience dealing with cases involving hearing loss or ear damage and can help you claim compensation for your injuries.
