How much can you claim for Military Hearing Loss?
Every claim against the MoD is different and the amount of financial compensation you can expect to receive for your hearing loss is dependent on a number of factors, the most important being the severity of your injuries and if your injuries have led to you suffering a financial loss, which may be in the form of lost earnings and pension.
All compensation awards for personal injury are based on a set of national guidelines called the Judicial College Guidelines. These guideline are published for the assessment of general damages in personal injury cases.
The latest set of guidelines (the 15th edition) were published in 2019 and example guidelines for varying degrees of deafness and hearing loss are set out below:
- Slight hearing loss – £4,850 to £8,250
- Mild Tinnitus – £8,250 to £9,570
- Partial hearing loss with moderate hearing loss – £9,750 to £19,500
- Partial hearing loss with severe tinnitus – £19,500 to £30,000
- Loss of hearing in one ear – £20,500 to £30,000
- Total deafness – £59,500 to £72,000
Every military hearing loss claim is different and your personal claim may be worth more or less than these figures quoted. These guidelines are purely used for illustrative purposes.
You can also claim for Special Damages
Our team of specialist military hearing loss claim amount solicitors are also able to help you claim for “special damages”, which include loss of earning claims for past earnings you may have lost in the military and for any future earnings that may have been compromised due to your injuries.
For example, you may have been downgraded or medically discharged from service due to your hearing loss and not been able to earn the same in civilian life, due to your hearing loss.
We specialise in advising clients about financial claims and our solicitors have helped settle individual cases for in excess of £600,000.
We helped a member of the Army to claim over £600,000 after he was exposed to significant noise, without being offered sufficient hearing protection. He was medically discharged from service and struggled to find employment in civilian life, having intended to spend his career in the Army.
Contact us today to see if you can claim financial compensation.
How long do I have to claim?
In military related hearing loss claims the law states that there is a 3 year claim period that starts from the date of a formal diagnosis or from the date you first linked your hearing loss with your work in the military.
We always recommend that you contact us as soon as possible, to ensure that your claim does not fall outside of this strict 3 year claim period.
If you are unsure whether you can make a claim due to the fact you were exposed to noise more than 3 years ago, call our solicitors now. Our friendly solicitors can advise you whether your personal circumstances allow you to make a claim.
Call us on 01507 609027.
How much does it cost to claim?
We do not charge our military hearing loss clients any fees to start a personal injury claim.
We fund all of our personal injury claims using “Conditional Fee Agreements”. These agreements are commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee agreement”.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.
