Am I entitled to claim?
Employers have a duty of care towards their workers, and must protect their health and safety while at work. If you have sustained hearing loss as a result of your employer failing to carry out a risk assessment, put the right safety measures in place or listen to your concerns, you may be entitled to claim for compensation.

If we decide to take on your case, a member of the team will talk to you about your claim for industrial deafness and the paperwork involved so you’re fully prepared for the process ahead.
