Hearing Loss Claims

What is Industrial Deafness?

Industrial deafness, which can also be known as occupational deafness, is caused by the noise in the workplace and can lead to hearing loss, which may be temporary or in some circumstances it may lead to permanent hearing loss.

Noise-induced deafness


Paschal O'Hare Solicitors has an impressive track record of success in dealing with claims for industrial deafness. Recently, we have fought and won cases that date as far back as the 1960s, despite the percieved complexities of this type of injury.

Industrial deafness, which can also be known as occupational deafness, is caused by noise in the workplace. Consistent exposure over a period of time may lead to hearing loss, which may be temporary or in some circumstances it may lead to permanent hearing loss. Often, symptoms do not emerge until years after exposure. 

If noise exceeds 80 decibels or higher, an employer should provide you with ear defence and make every possible effort to reduce excessive sounds. The Health and Safety Executive estimate that 1 million people are at risk of suffering from occupational deafness in the future due to noise levels at work.

In the past, many companies, being a product of their time, failed to provide employees with the means to protect their hearing. Fortunately, it is still possible to claim for compensation despite the lack of health & safety laws during times gone.
