(PRWEB UK) 8 September 2013
Personal Injury firm Mercury Legal Online has launched a website dedicated to providing legal advice to sufferers of tinnitus.
The tinnitus website has been designed specifically for sufferers of noise-induced hearing loss which can be traced back to a time working in a noisy environment without any hearing protection. The site advises on the causes of tinnitus, the requirements needed to make a claim for tinnitus compensation and the symptoms that may be experienced by those suffering with the condition.
There is a compensation calculator available, giving users an idea of the amount of tinnitus compensation they may be entitled to. There is also a detailed infographic, providing key statistics on the number of people currently affected by tinnitus, their symptoms, and the steps that need to be taken in making a claim for hearing loss compensation. To view the infographic, please click here.
1 in every 200 people in the UK is severely affected by tinnitus. Although other causes do exist - such as side effects from certain types of medication – in the majority of cases the cause can be traced back to a time spent working in a noisy environment. Many sufferers are unaware that they can claim compensation for hearing loss - this site aims to thoroughly inform sufferers of the legal options available to them.
Gavin Moat, Senior Partner at Mercury Legal Online, said of the launch: “We wanted to design a website dedicated to providing information to those suffering with noise-induced hearing loss to inform them of their options.
“We hope that this website will act as a key resource for those affected by tinnitus, and allow them to find all the information they need, when they need it.
“Along with the infographic, we hope the website will inform people of the legal issues surrounding noise-induced hearing loss, to ensure that those affected know their legal position right from the start.”
