Noise induced hearing loss( NIHL) is defined as a permanent hearing impairment that occurs from protracted exposure to excessively loud noise. As would be expected this can occur in a working setting , where you may be overexposed to such kinds of noise, especially while operating industrial machines. When noise becomes excessive it can begin to kill the cells of your inner ear, which usually leads to permanent hearing loss. As the government explicitly acknowledges that noise at the work place can trigger hearing loss, employers are legally required to assess and monitor noise levels within the workplace. Hence should you deem that you have suffered NIHL, you are entitled to seek for an industrial deafness compensation from your employer.
Typically the exact amount of the noise induced hearing loss compensation you could make demands on the severity of your predicament. You are allowed to make claims of up to £63,625 for a case of total deafness. For total loss of hearing in a single ear you can claim up to £26,500. When it comes to partial hearing loss or severe tinnitus, you are entitled to claim the upwards of £26,500. While on the other hand if you have partial hearing loss or moderate tinnitus you can claim up to £17,300. Finally, for partial hearing loss or mild tinnitus you can claim £8,650.
