This is the most common form of abuse in children where a child can be subject to emotional anger from their parents or another adult. It is common knowledge that a parent can be abusive without being physical, such as aggressive shouting towards their children and also intimidation is another form of emotional of mental abuse in children.
Where a parent or guardian fails to provide for the child’s needs. This can be in many forms, such as clothing, food and shelter, through love and caring and support, by lack of knowledge and guidance, by neglecting to care for them when they need medical attention, and through lack of control and supervision of the child.
Any harmful physical abuse against a defenceless child is a sin committed by adults in order to try and control their children, but in some instances it is deemed as okay by law, such as slapping or hitting a child when they are naughty. However, some parents or guardians take it too far and use violence against children such as punching and breaking bones, burning with cigarettes and shaking a baby (shaken baby syndrome). Physical abuse is an act of impulse that can usually be brought on by the bad habits of the harmer such as alcoholism, drug abuse or by being the subject of child abuse themselves.
A term used when all of the family are the subject of violence from one person who tries to control. It is also referred to as domestic violence. A scenario that could take place is the mother gets physically abused by the father and the child steps in to protect his/ her mother, in which case they are then the substitute for that violence.
Where an adult will groom the child into a sexual act to satisfy their own sexual needs. This is a cruel act of abuse in children where child cannot protect themselves from the abuse. An adult could use threatening behaviour or they could even lead the child on to believe what is happening is the right thing to do (groomed) as the adult will use manipulation against the child.
The abuse of children can have many different impacts on the mental health of the child. Severe and repeated trauma during childhood may lead the child down a long and lonely path to adulthood. A child may grow up aloof and untrustworthy of others around them. Poor physical health, unhappiness and depression and a poor mental health are other more common effects of long term abuse. An adult that has suffered is also at the risk of diseases, reacting poorly in relationships, social isolation & disconnection and may witness behaviour defects from long term child abuse.

Deafness is a disorder that affects the ability to hear. There are several types of deafness; these include conductive, sensorineural and neural deafness. Conductive deafness does imply that sound cannot freely pass through the middle or outer ear. Neural deafness means that the auditory nerve is either damaged or not there at all, making it impossible for the inner ear to send information to the brain. Sensorineural deafness, on the other hand, is caused by a problem in the auditory or cochlea nerve.
There are also several ranges of deafness such as mild, moderate, severe and profound. People suffering from mild deafness have a little difficulty following speech if there is a lot of background noise but can cope quite well if the environment is conducive. People with moderate deafness usually have difficulty following speech in most settings but can be significantly assisted by hearing aids. On the other hand, people suffering from severe deafness cannot hear any speech unless they have a hearing aid. Those with profound deafness hear no sound at all even with the help of hearing aids.
The payouts for hearing loss or deafness vary greatly between different claims. The compensation awarded typically depends on how severe the deafness is as well as any other suffering or pain caused due to the loss. How you deafness occurred and whether your employer was aware of the risks are also factors taken into consideration. Your age will also be taken into consideration with older people required to prove that their hearing loss is not due to old age but due to negligence from the employer. The deafness compensation claim amount does vary according to the severity of deafness.
Typically, the hearing loss claim can start from £5,000. The compensation for total deafness in one ear can range from £17,000 to around £25,000 or thereabouts. For those who have completely lost the ability to hear in both years, the compensation amount can range between £50,000 and £75,000. These figures are not static and can even go up.
In one severe case in London, a former telecom engineer with BT was paid £ 90,000 as compensation. Other industries where compensation claims usually emanate from include pubs and clubs, woodworking, general fabrication, canning or bottling, military, road repair, metal pressing and stamping, steel works, demolition, ship building etc.
There are several tell-tale signs one should be on the lookout for, these include but are not limited to the following;
- Difficulty following speech and conversations, particularly so in areas with background noise, you may be able to make out some words and not others. This is because with hearing loss, you first lose some frequencies; usually softer speech sounds and higher frequencies.
- You may also suffer from tinnitus or a rushing or ringing sound in the ears. The volume can vary from mildly irritating to quite loud
- You may also suffer from acoustic shock; this is temporary deafness which may also experience as ringing sensations in the ear.
- Lack of startle response to noise or other expected distractions such as clapping of hands, screams or even musical sounds.
- Confusion with some words as you struggle to get certain consonants such as T, S and D
- Family members may start complaining that the TV is too loud and using the telephone may prove to be difficult.
Diagnosis is usually made by visiting an audiologist, an ear specialist who will perform a number of tests so as to determine the severity of the hearing loss.

Contrary to popular belief, making your claim is not tedious nor is it time-consuming for any solicitor. In the UK, The Control of Noise at Work Regulations are there to protect the hearing of those who are employed in a noisy environment where the noise levels is above 85 decibels, in the event that you have been exposed to these levels of noise without the correct protection offered then you can make a claim.
You don’t necessarily have the dates and records before contacting us, the solicitor who takes on the claim will do all the hard work. The first step is usually to speak to us so that we can ask you a few questions to gauge your suitability. If you qualify, the next step involves having your hearing tested. This is usually done by an audiologist who not only determines the severity of your deafness, but can also advise on the cause of the hearing loss. Once the test has been completed and the results provided, the solicitor will review the same and make a final decision whether to proceed with the claim or not.
Typically, the amount of time a claim takes to process does vary from anything between six months and eighteen months; this is usually dependent on the complexity of the case.
There is a three-year limit for filing a hearing loss claim. It is important to note that these 3 years commence from the date you are made aware of the problem. It is also worth mentioning that you can be able to make a claim against a company you no longer work for that particular company or even go ahead and make a claim from more than one past employer.
You can also file a claim against your former employer even if they have gone out of business; this is because all employers must pay for liability insurance in order to compensate any claims made against them.
