Hearing loss claims – everything you need to know Find out more about hearing loss and how to make a claim for compensation. For more information about making a No Win No Fee claim, get in touch today. Suffering hearing loss, whether it is slight or full deafness, can be a distressing time. If your hearing loss was caused due to the negligence of a third party then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. The most common form of hearing loss claim is against an employer, as hearing damage can be caused due to excessive noise and a lack of ear protection at work. These claims are commonly known as industrial deafness, but may also be referred to as ‘occupational deafness’ or ‘Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL)‘ claims. Industrial deafness is generally the result of an employee being subjected to a loud noise, normally over a long period of time while not wearing the correct ear protection. There are certain occupations that have more risk of industrial deafness, such as working on construction sites or in factories with a lot of loud machinery. However, industrial deafness can affect workers in any industry. Negligence in hearing loss claims…

Living with hearing loss

Living with hearing loss Hearing loss of any form can have a significant impact on a person’s life, and it is not unusual for people with hearing difficulties to become withdrawn, isolated and depressed as communication becomes more difficult.

Witness describes seeing man ‘thrown into a garden’ after allegedly stolen car flips over in horror crash in Wirral A man was thrown out of a suspected stolen car after it flipped over in Wirral last weekend. The occupant of the vehicle was flung into a garden on Bebington Road, according to an eyewitness at the scene. The incident happened at approximately 8.40am on Sunday morning, and two men were rushed to Aintree Hospital after the car – a Vauxhall Vectra – flipped over onto its roof in the road. One local told the Liverpool Echo: “One body was thrown into a garden and the other one had to be resuscitated. “It didn’t look good at all, I hope they’re both okay.” Another witness told the local paper they thought the noise was Storm Brian: “I heard a noise, but when I looked in my back garden a chair had overturned. I thought Brian had finally hit, so I blamed it on him. “The house shook after the crash – at first I thought it was the wind.” A man, who was in his house at the time of the crash, heard the car speeding down the street.

New study links heading footballs with brain injuries

New study links heading footballs with brain injuries New research carried out by the University of Stirling has identified ‘significant’ changes to the function of the brain following routine heading practice. The study is the first of its kind to identify direct changes after football players are exposed to routine, everyday head impacts, rather than more serious impacts that can lead to concussion and other clinical brain injuries. The findings come following concerns that football players’ brains are damaged due to repeated heading of the ball. The former West Brom striker Jeff Astle died at the age of 59 in 2002 and suffered from early onset dementia, which the coroner attributed to a career of heading footballs. The cause of death was subsequently given as industrial disease. Following a re-examination of Astle’s brain it was found he was suffering from Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). Due to the nature of the condition, CTE can only be diagnosed after the death of the patient, and has been found in the brains of deceased American footballers, rugby players and boxers. A separate study by University College London, which involved post-mortem examinations on the brains of five professional footballers and one amateur who had…

How your social media use could affect your compensation claim

How your social media use could affect your compensation claim These days it feels like all of use social media to some extent, sharing our opinions, thoughts and events in text, photo or video form. Due to this everyday use of networks such as Facebook and Twitter, it’s easy to see how those who suffer an injury might share their experiences on social media. You must remember though, that what goes online stays online – and can be seen by people who are not necessarily part of your close circle of friends and family. We are seeing a growing trend of insurance companies using social media to help research, analyse and reject claims. Some insurance companies are even hiring social media and digital experts to scan through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc… to uncover posts and related information about Claimants. Of course, a lot of what we share is completely innocent – but it is worth bearing in mind that if you are going through the process of a claim then your social media use may be looked at. You may think that if you have nothing to hide then you shouldn’t worry, but the major worry for legitimate Claimant’s is…
