At Roberts Jackson Solicitors our speciality is Industrial Disease especially Noise Induced Hearing Loss. This work related condition is caused by an individuals working environment, specifically a noisy one. Due to their work in noisy environments their hearing can be damaged if proper protection and safety requirements are not enforced properly.
Through our experience with this condition we often hear that tinnitus or “Ringing & Buzzing” are the most common symptoms related to work related hearing loss. It can be an incredibly life changing condition regarding stress and sleep issues however through our experience there isn’t many options provided to sufferers in terms of information or physical help.
We have published content and articles on the subject of Tinnitus in the hope that either our clients or people seeking information are given some kind of direction regarding their tinnitus. You can find the article here Tinnitus Tips and Advice.
Tinnitus can affect everyone from all walks of life and it is very common for symptoms to arise later in life due to the way the damage affects the ear.
