Industrial deafness » Compensation amounts

Noise-induced hearing loss is a problem that threatens over a million people in the UK. Around 170,000 people are believed to have already developed hearing loss as a result of their work but there may be many more that do not realise their hearing has been damaged or have yet to be diagnosed.

If you have developed industrial deafness or tinnitus because of a workplace noise, you may well wish to claim personal injury compensation. Many people want to know how much compensation they would get before starting an industrial deafness claim so they can make an informed decision as to whether to proceed.

Industrial deafness compensation

It is difficult to give an entirely accurate amount as every case of industrial deafness is different. The hearing problem may consist entirely of tinnitus, a combination of deafness and tinnitus, or deafness alone, and the degree to which hearing is affected can vary enormously.

The following is a rough estimation as to the personal injury compensation that may be awarded for an industrial deafness or tinnitus claim:

  • Total deafness: 50,000 to 60,000 pounds
  • Total hearing loss in one ear: 17,500 to 25,000 pounds
  • Severe tinnitus/hearing loss: 16,000 to 25,000 pounds
  • Moderate tinnitus/hearing loss: 8,000 to 16,000 pounds
  • Mild tinnitus with some hearing loss: 6,750 to 8,000 pounds
  • Slight or occasional tinnitus with slight hearing loss: 4,000 to 6,750 pounds

There are many more variables that can affect the amount of industrial deafness compensation that is awarded, such as the age of the person and the effect that it may have on that persons career.
