WE Solicitors are campaigning to raise the awareness of tinnitus which is a medical condition which causes a buzzing, whistling or whooshing sound in the ear. The noise is most obvious at night but can be persistent throughout the day.
Tinnitus can be caused in a number of ways. Many people who have been exposed to excessive noise at work complain of tinnitus and it can lead them to seek medical advice from their GP and possible an Ear Nose & Throat Expert.
Whilst there is little hat can be done to correct the condition there are masking devices on the market which can alleviate some of the symptoms. Many GP’s simply tell clients there is nothing that can be done and that they will have to live with the symptoms.
Many famous celebrities have tinnitus, including Chris Martin from Coldplay.
If you have been exposed to noise at work and now suffer from tinnitus then please call us today on freephone 0800 294 3065 and you may be eligible for compensation from your former or current employers.
