How Much Compensation For Hearing Loss

Wanting to know how much compensation for hearing loss claims is a natural question if you have suffered any type of deafness. If the hearing loss injury occurred through the fault of a third party then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

Different types of hearing loss

The most common type of hearing loss claim is that of industrial deafness; i.e. a type of hearing impairment which has occurred in the workplace through the negligence of an employer. More often than not this is due to health and safety protocols not being adhered to in an environment where noisy industrial machinery is prevalent. Industrial deafness affects approximately 1 million people in this country and includes symptoms such as tinnitus and varying degrees of hearing loss.

It is also possible to experience hearing loss through clinical negligence. One example is illnesses such as meningitis. If this illness is diagnosed too late and hearing loss results then you could have a claim for compensation.

If a child loses its hearing, the amount of potential compensation will depend on how profoundly affected the child is. Hearing plays a key role in the language and development in children. Because of this, compensation amounts need to reflect the lack of this vital lifeline any sufferer has had taken away.

Compensation amounts for hearing loss claims

The below figures will give you a broad indication of how much compensation for hearing loss you may receive. The amount you could receive will depend on the severity of your hearing loss and your long-term prognosis.

These figures relate to compensation for injury only. They do not include sums for financial losses such as loss of earning that may result. These can be claimed in addition to the sums set out below.
