Industrial Deafness Claims
Industrial deafness is a type of injury that is related to work and involves hearing loss. Hearing loss can be temporary or permanent. People develop hearing loss as a result of doing various kinds of jobs. Basically, it is caused by being exposed to excessive noise at the workplace. The type of hearing loss and extent of damage depends on the levels of noise at work and also the length of time the individual had been exposed to excessive noise.
If you have or are working in a noisy environment and have developed hearing loss, then you may be entitled to make industrial deafness claims.
Noise induced hearing loss can affect any person whether you are old or young. It may take years to notice hearing loss in a person or it can happen quickly. When exposed to high levels of noise at work over long periods of time, the auditory gets damaged. This means that the sensory cells become incapable of sending correct messages to the brain.
Excessive noise at work can also cause tinnitus which is an aggravating condition. Tinnitus can be defined as ringing or buzzing in the ear in the absence of external ringing or buzzing sounds. Tinnitus can affect one or both the ears. It can be temporary or permanent.
