I was last exposed to noise many years ago can I still succeed in bringing a claim?

MRH Solicitors routinely succeed with claims for clients who have not worked in noisy work environments for in excess of 25 years. Therefore this is not a bar to making a claim.

I was given hearing protection by my employers but not from the start of my employment. Does that affect my ability to make a claim for noise induced hearing loss?

Even if hearing protection was provided to you at some point during your employment, this does not mean you cannot still succeed with a claim.

I have hearing loss but I do not know if my employment was noisy?

At MRH Solicitors, we have an extensive bank of information relating to the likely noise levels that are experienced in most types of industries. One of our team will be able to advise you on whether your employment was likely to involve excessive noise or not.

Can I bring a claim against an employer who is no longer trading?

Yes, a claim can be pursued if the insurers of the company can be identified. MRH Solicitors have access to various resources to assist in identifying insurers of defunct companies.

I was last exposed to Asbestos many years ago, can I still succeed with a claim?

Illness from Asbestos exposure can occur up to 35 years or longer after the last exposure to Asbestos occurred. Therefore this is not a bar to making a claim.

I was given respiratory protection to protect me from the inhalation of Asbestos, does that mean I cannot claim?

Even if respiratory protection was provided to you at some point during your employment, this does not mean you cannot still succeed with a claim.

I think I was exposed to Asbestos, but I am not sure?

I have been diagnosed with Pleural Plaques due to Asbestos exposure can I still make a claim?

In short, unless the exposure to Asbestos occurred in Scotland, the answer is no. The House of Lords has ruled that Pleural Plaques does not constitute an injury which should be compensated. However, we still recommend you to contact the specialist industrial disease department at MRH Solicitors for further information and advice.
