Accidents at work are unfortunately very common. They can occur in all types of employment, but construction or industrial workers are far more at risk of getting themselves injured than most people. Safety measures and adequate training in order to handle the necessary equipment are essential to prevent the possibility of any accident happening.
Nonetheless, if you have suffered a physical injury in the workplace, you could be entitled to workplace personal injury compensation. To be eligible for such compensation, the accident and subsequent injury must not be caused because of your own doing and there must be sufficient evidence to confirm this. There must also be sufficient evidence to confirm that the accident actually caused your injuries, such as medical records. Providing this is the case, you can find some consolation in the fact that you can file for a compensation claim to cover the losses you incurred as a result of the workplace injury.
Among the types of injury that workers very often suffer from are noise-related hearing problems, particularly, tinnitus and industrial deafness or noise-induced hearing loss. These types of personal injury are usually brought about by too much noise in the workplace. It is normally caused by excessive noise over a sustained period of time, but can also be caused by short periods. Industrial deafness can range from minor hearing problems to complete hearing loss.
Employers are mandated by law to provide a safe and healthy working environment for its workers, and preventing high levels of noise exposure is one measure that needs to be undertaken. After all, workers who are constantly exposed to high levels of noise can develop a variety of hearing problems, such as temporary hearing loss, permanent hearing loss, acoustic trauma and tinnitus, any of which can worsen. Depending on the extent of the hearing injury, you may need to take time off work. In extreme cases you may even have to change employment, or even be unable to work completely.
The good thing is that you may be able to file for a claim to compensation for all these circumstances, and your chances of winning the case and getting full compensation benefits are actually very good in these cases.
Filing for a compensation claim, though, can be tough, especially if you are going to do it all by yourself. To make things easier for you, you can consult an experienced and qualified personal injury solicitor who will be able to guide you through the whole step by step process and make sure everything goes according to plan.
