Claims for Hearing Loss at Work Scotland

Get in touch

If you are subjected to excessive noise at work this could cause damage to your hearing. If you believe you are suffering from hearing problems caused by your work environment, you could be entitled to compensation if your employer has not taken reasonable steps to protect you. If you need more information and advice on this matter, contact the specialist solicitors at Jones Whyte today for a consultation. We will listen to your situation carefully and let you know whether you have a valid claim.

Whatever the degree of hearing loss suffered, employers open themselves to claims for hearing loss at work if they don’t provide adequate protection, or if they fail to take steps to reduce noise.

If you work, or used to work, in a noisy environment, your employer has a legal duty to reduce the risk of you suffering from hearing problems. This means making sure you have the proper personal protective equipment (PPE), such as earmuffs and earplugs, and making sure you are not exposed to loud noises for prolonged periods of time. They are also responsible for ensuring that you receive regular and adequate health checks.

Hearing loss claims process

At Jones Whyte, our experienced workplace injury lawyers will be available to take you through the entire claim.

Whether your hearing loss is a result of a single incident, or there was an ongoing pattern of negligence, the claims process is roughly the same. It starts with one of our team taking your statement. This is to establish exactly what happened and what should have been done differently. We will then investigate the claim. We will gather evidence, which could include:

  • Medical records.
  • Witness statements.
  • Workplace policies.

We will then inform the other side of the claim and begin to calculate an appropriate level of compensation.

Most compensation claims are settled out of court. If court action is necessary, we will ensure you are supported throughout.
