Industrial deafness is the loss of hearing as a result of working for long periods of time in extremely noisy environments. Hearing loss is a permanent impairment that affects many workers in construction, manufacturing and industrial environments, as well as those working near or with heavy machinery and equipment. Once you have damaged the hair cells in your inner ear (known as the cochlea) they can't be fixed. Never ignore hearing loss – once you have lost your hearing there is no cure. Hearing aids can help you to hear better, but they are not for everyone.

I would highly recommend Smith’s Lawyers. The work they put into my case was exceptional, even with such a busy working life and at most times being unreachable. They went above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome. I am very pleased with their work and the result.
"I highly recommend Smith’s Lawyers! They are very easy to deal with, all staff from the reception ladies through to the lawyers are friendly and action emails and phone messages promptly. I couldn’t have asked more from any of the team. I’ll certainly use Smith’s again in the future if I need to"
"Greg, Luke and the team at Smiths Lawyers were absolutely amazing in the handling of my cases from day one they were so proactive right through to finalisation of my claim. It’s true what they say no win no fee ( A broad statement) we won my claim and the cost associated with the claim was as such after deductions."
"People cringe at the thought of dealing with lawyers but my experience so far has been an absolute pleasure."
