I was a passenger in a car involved in a road traffic accident and suffered serious injuries to my right shoulder, my elbow and scarring to my forehead. I was unable to work for a long time. Jefferies Solicitors Ltd dealt with my case from the outset. I never expected that I would receive £21,191.00 of compensation for my injuries and other losses I had as a result of the accident. I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and would definitely recommend Jefferies Solicitors Ltd to anyone who wants to make an accident claim

If you are suffering from tinnitus and someone else is to blame then you do have the right to pursue compensation. When you are considering making a claim it is normal to want to know how much you will receive.

Calculating your Tinnitus claim

Tinnitus claims can range in value from £4,850 to £30,000. Calculating exactly how much you will receive is not an exact science, generally, because every case is unique but estimates can be made based on the following:

  • The amount you have spent on medical treatment, such as private nursing care or disability aides
  • The length of time it has taken you to recover
  • Any loss of earnings as a result of your injury or suffering
  • How the tinnitus has affected your life long-term

General damages

Tinnitus can often appear alongside other hearing related problems such as deafness, vertigo, sleep disturbances and nausea. Sufferers can live with any number of these symptoms on a daily basis. The calculating of your claim will bear these factors in mind and how much your quality of life is affected.

Loss of earnings

Your loss of earnings covers future losses as well as any you have lost past. If you have been rendered unfit for your previous job then you could be looking at a large compensation amount. Having tinnitus can mean that you have severely psychologically affected too. Receiving treatment from psychiatrists, cognitive behavioural therapists is not unheard of and the costs associated with that will also add on to your final settlement fee.

Employer’s duty of care

The constant ringing or buzzing sound in the ear/s which indicates tinnitus can range from mild to severe in terms of noise level. At times it is referred to as ‘noise-induced hearing loss’ or ‘industrial deafness’ and is often brought on by loud and persistently noisy working environments.

Your employer can sometimes fail to protect you by not carrying out health and safety procedures or supplying you with ear protection. If this is the case then your employer has not carried out its legal duty of care and you could be entitled to make a claim for any losses you have experienced.
