Solicitors for RAF Hearing Loss Compensation
Our military hearing loss solicitors speak with many service men and women every year who have sustained hearing loss from military service. We regularly advise military personnel from the RAF, Army, Navy and Special Forces.
Common sources of noise in the RAF
Some of the most common sources of noise which feature in many of the RAF military hearing loss enquiries we receive include:
- Working around aircraft and helicopter noise
- Working around jet engines
- Working around other military vehicle engines
- Firing weapons during training exercises
- Explosions in training scenarios
If you were exposed to excessive noise during the course of your employment in the RAF and you were not provided with the correct hearing protection or hearing protection that was insufficient then you may be entitled to claim compensation for military deafness.
The RAF hearing loss compensation claims process
We understand that making a claim against the Ministry of Defence (MoD) can be a worrying and daunting decision, which is why we aim to provide support and expert legal advice to all of our clients.
We also recognise that you may have lots of questions that you would like to ask us, which is why we offer all new RAF hearing loss compensation clients the opportunity to speak to us during a free and no obligation initial consultation.
Initial consultations usually last approximately 30 minutes and we will ask you a number of questions about your exposure to noise, the hearing protection you have been provided and will take brief details about your military career. We are usually able to give you an indication of whether we think your claim has sufficient merit, over the phone. If we believe you have grounds to make a claim, we can make arrangements to visit you at a convenient location near to your barracks if you are still serving or at your home if you have already left the RAF or have been medically discharged.
We aim to make the process of claiming as stress free as possible.
Time limits involved in RAF hearing loss claims
There are strict time limits in place when it comes to Military related hearing loss claims. This limitation period is 3 years from the injury date or as in most cases, 3 years of becoming aware that your hearing was damaged by exposure to noise.
If you are unsure about whether you can claim due to a limitation issue, we would encourage you to call us to discuss your potential claim. We have many years experience in advising members of the RAF regarding hearing loss claims so will be able to put your mind at ease.
How much does it cost to claim?
We fund all our RAF hearing loss compensation 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.
Legal fees are paid by the Ministry of Defence, not by you.
We do not require our clients to pay any upfront fees to get a claim up and running.
