How Much Compensation for Industrial Deafness Claims in London?
When we calculate how much industrial deafness and hearing loss compensation our clients are due, our specialist claims lawyers will look at the whole picture in order to get the best result for the client. Typical claim amounts and payouts can range from four thousand to seventy thousand pounds depending on the severity and impact of the hearing loss.
Everyone that we work for has a different case, and the circumstances around their hearing loss or tinnitus will always be different – that’s why we address each case on an individual basis. Below are some guidelines to hearing loss compensation amounts that have been paid out in London and the UK.
- Total industrial hearing loss with no hearing in either ear – £50,000 to £70,000
- Total hearing loss in just the one ear – £17,000 to £30,000
- Serious tinnitus and hearing loss – £8,000 to £15,000
- Minor hearing loss or minor tinnitus – £4,000 to £7,000
Most cases will need to address via medical reports whether or not you have a complete loss of hearing, or just partial deafness. It will also take into account whether you have pain and suffering as a result of the damage, and whether or not it is both ears or just one.

Industrial Hearing Loss Compensation London
Employer Responsibilities – UK Law
During the process of us helping you in claiming for London industrial deafness compensation we will need to find out whether your employer followed the necessary health and safety guidelines to protect our hearing. This will form the basis of any industrial hearing loss compensation amounts. Aspects that employers are required by law to follow include:
- Reducing exposure to noise in the workplace
- Providing employees with health and safety equipment
- Monitoring noise to ensure it does not exceed legal maximums
- Checking machinery and equipment for noise levels
- Giving adequate health and safety training on-site
- Checking employees who are at risk from industrial deafness
Industrial Deafness Compensation for Partial Noise Exposure
Not every single claim that we deal with results in a client having immediately lost their hearing. For some victims it will be a gradual process coming many years after they have been exposed to noise pollution. This is referred to a partial noise exposure.
You might find that your hearing is getting worse over time, sometimes many years after. In case like this our solicitors are still able to support clients with claiming for hearing loss compensation in the London area.
