Industrial Deafness

Noise-Induced Hearing Loss claims a thing of the past with Cox & Plant’s e-mag range

There has been a significant rise in marketing activity from firms of solicitors and claims management companies promoting a ‘no win no fee’ approach to claims for industrial deafness. “How much for Tinnitus?” “What’s my claim worth?” “Can I get compensation?” are all strap lines designed to draw potential claimants towards firms who will act on their behalf and guide them through the process of claiming.

@Coxandplant we take the issue of noise levels very seriously especially as our MD in a former life was a commercial underwriter of liability policies for Royal Insurance.

It is often the case that one successful NIHL claim will lead to others as the word spreads. A run of these on a claims experience will have an adverse effect on your business’s insurance premiums in the future.

And of course, Cox & Plants risk management will play a major part in preventing losses and showing as an employer in the food industry, when placed under scrutiny, as a business that takes its responsibility for the standard of care to its employees seriously.
