Harris Fowler can help you
We take the view that an employer owes their workers a duty of care to properly assess the risks of their environments, to take appropriate action to reduce noise exposure and provide adequate ear protection to ensure that the legal limits on noise exposure are not exceeded.
We know that this often does not happen and we have therefore developed a specialist team of lawyers who have the expertise and knowledge to represent clients if they have been exposed to high levels of noise in their work environments. We are able to advise you on the best way of pursuing compensation to ease the burden if you have suffered hearing loss and are no longer able to work.

What are noise related conditions?
Many workers complain if noise related conditions when they are exposed to high levels of noise in the workplace. This can lead to hearing loss and over 17,000 people in the UK suffer deafness, ringing in the ears or other ear conditions caused by noise at work.
Although hearing loss can be instant such as when caused by sudden very loud or explosive sounds, the majority of hearing loss cases develop gradually. Workers in a variety of professions complain of hearing loss including industrial workers in factories, tyre fitters, machinists and even people that play in orchestras over many years and suffer a general dulling of their hearing.
