Tinnitus Compensation Claims
Tinnitus is a loud prolonged ringing in the ears. Whilst most of us may suffer from the condition from time to time, perhaps after attending a rock concert for instance, many people facing tinnitus on a long-term basis can link their circumstances to their work environment.
Long-term tinnitus is often caused by noisy workplaces and in many cases the situation could have been avoided if an employer had adhered to the law. Tinnitus can cause difficulty sleeping, functioning in general and even lead to depression.
Was Your Employer Negligent?
Many cases of tinnitus are the result of workers not being provided with the safety equipment required. Tinnitus usually occurs when someone is exposed to a noisy environment over a long period of time. In extreme cases, tinnitus can be continuous, though most of the time it is an intermittent sensation. There is no cure for tinnitus, although there are steps you can take such as using sound pillows that can reduce the irritation and suffering to some degree. Nonetheless, if you have suffered from tinnitus due to no fault of your own it’s only right that you should battle for compensation.

At Blackwater Law, we’ve successfully battled for compensation on behalf of hundreds of tinnitus sufferers.
