Working in a call or contact centre can expose you to sudden loud sound down your headset. This acoustic shock or trauma can cause hearing loss, tinnitus or sensitivity to loud sound.

If you experience an acoustic incident and afterwards find yourself suffering from any of these symptoms then you should seek medical advice from your GP or occupational health advisor and ask for your hearing to be tested. Any after effects could entitle you to compensation for tinnitus.

If you believe that you are suffering from hearing loss or other symptoms caused by an acoustic incident at work, the Hugh James Personal Injury Team will provide the specialist help that you need with making tinnitus compensation claims.

Hugh James has helped thousands of people nationally to recover compensation in tinnitus claims that are caused by work. We will also instruct the right medical experts to prove that your work has caused your injury. Let our experienced personal injury team help you today. Call now for more information.
