I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and can’t thank you enough for all the hard work that you put in. Everything went so smoothly and all I had to do was sign some papers and everything was taken care of. Anytime I had any concerns I knew I could call and my mind was always put at rest. You can never know how much this means to me and I am so grateful. If anything ever happened to me again then I would come straight to you.

Wanting to know how much compensation for hearing loss is only natural if you have suffered any type of deafness. If your hearing loss injury occurred through the fault of a third party, 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. Usually,  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.

In the case of children, how much compensation for hearing loss 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.

The below figures will give you a broad indication of how much compensation for hearing loss you may receive.
