Acoustic deafness compensation claims.

Acoustic deafness is also known as acoustic shock or even acoustic trauma. It comes as a result of a very sudden loud noise such as gunfire, something dropping from a great height or loud feedback on a speaker or headset.

The damage can be so severe that a perforated eardrum can occur.  Hearing damage can be as mild as temporary loss of hearing or as severe as permanent loss of hearing

Tinnitus compensation claims

Sufferers of this condition will usually hear a hissing or buzzing in the ears. Sometimes it affects just one ear and may sound like whistling. It may even sound comparable to background traffic noise. The condition sometimes lasts for a short period of time, and at other times it can be permanent.

People who work in transport, industrial settings, factories or with heavy machinery are at great risk of tinnitus. Depending upon the level that the person has, it can affect concentration and sleep.
