With the Government implementing unprecedented steps to reduce the spread of coronavirus, many of us are spending more time at home alone or with our families, away from the hustle and bustle of work and our normal, everyday lives.
Are you noticing things you perhaps haven’t before? Do you hear ringing or whistling in your ears when it’s quiet? Do you struggle to hear the telephone ringing? Are you having to turn the TV up? Perhaps friends or loved ones have said that you are talking loudly?
It is often when we are taken away from our everyday routine that we start to notice things we otherwise wouldn’t and these can all be signs of hearing loss and tinnitus, caused by exposure to noise.
If you have worked in a noisy industry or been exposed to noise through work and have any of these symptoms, it may be that you are suffering with noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus. This could be the ideal opportunity to consider the cause of any problems and to find out whether you may eligible for compensation and possible Government benefits.
If you have worked or are working in noise and were not provided with hearing protection or the wearing of the hearing protection wasn’t enforced, contact us today on 0800 294 3065 to investigate your possible rights to compensation and fiind out how we can help.
