In recent years, hearing loss and damage amongst members of the armed forces has become more prevalent. It leaves soldiers struggling to adapt to life back home, triggering emotional issues and leaving some members of the armed forces unable to work.
Many soldiers who have returned home due to serious cases of industrial deafness and tinnitus have decided to pursue hearing loss claims. The majority of these cases are settled out of court, with significant sums of compensation being awarded to thousands of soldiers who have not had their hearing sufficiently protected.
If you think your hearing loss is a result of your time in the armed forces, call YouClaim today on 0800 10 757 95 to discuss making an armed forces deafness claim.
Officers in the armed forces are obligated to ensure the military personnel they are responsible for are provided with adequate hearing protection if exposed to loud noises in training and combat.
Compensation claims of this nature are often very complex as it is difficult to determine whether ear protection was issued and ignored, or whether poor training and awareness of risk led to the removal of safety equipment. Determining blame is especially difficult when considering the traumatic environment.
The YouClaim team specialises in industrial disease claims, and our panel solicitors have comprehensive experience in winning complicated claims for armed forces veterans, delivering the very best results for the victim. Their knowledge and skills in medical law, industrial illness and work place claims puts us in the optimum position to deliver positive results for each and every client.
If you have served in any area of the armed forces since and have suffered hearing damage as a result, the Ministry of Defence may be responsible for your injuries as a result of a failure to provide proper hearing protection.
