Signs & Symptoms of Hearing Loss

Misunderstanding People

People with hearing loss often find it difficult to engage in conversations with multiple people and struggle to understand what is being said.

Dish, Wish, Hiss

Words that end with s, h, h, or th are suddenly much harder to make out if they are heard at all. speak may often sound muffled.

Ringing, Hissing, or Buzzing

Another sign of hearing loss is the sound of ringing, hissing, buzzing, clicking, roaring or drilling in your ear(s).

Increased Stress

Feeling tired or stress from having to concentrate while listening during conversations is very common with hearing loss.

Turning up the TV

Do you often find people telling you to turn down the TV or Radio, but you can just about hear it? You may be suffering from hearing loss.

Social Situations

Avoidance of social situations due to trouble hearing what’s going on around you is a sign that your hearing may be deteriorating.

MoD Hearing Loss Compensation

Hearing loss can be caused by a range of factors, including extended exposure to loud noises and traumatic events, like gunshots. It may develop slowly over time or be sudden and unexpected; in addition, it may occur in one ear or both. Regardless of the cause, hearing loss can have a significant impact on your daily life.

If you are filing a Military hearing loss claim, we recommend that you be evaluated by a medical professional so the extent of your injury may be determined.

Our team is happy to provide this evaluation free of cost as part of our service.

Why Can't I Claim Before 1987?

Due to a clause in the Crown Proceedings Act, claims for military hearing loss prior to May 1987 cannot be made. As a result, those who were exposed to excessive noise while serving in the military will not receive any compensation. It is important to note that this policy applies only to cases before May 1987 and those after may still be eligible for compensation.

Will Claiming Impact My Career?

In the event that you recover from your injuries and can return to work, there are very strict rules about discriminating against someone for bringing a legal claim.

Personnel who file a compensation claim after an injury are not looked down upon by the MoD. The Ministry of Defence pays you a settlement, regardless of whether you return to work or not, out of a budget specifically allocated for this purpose. Your unit’s budget doesn’t cover it and it certainly doesn’t come from the same budget that dictates the amount and quality of gear, equipment, and other resources for your friends who remain in service.

Will A Claim Affect My Pension?

No, bringing a claim won’t affect your entitlement to a pension under any of the various Armed Forces Pension Schemes.

Who Pays The Compensation?

You may be compensated by a different party depending on the circumstances, but in most military cases, your compensation will come from a specially designated budget for military claims. MoD compensation is paid by a separate budget from the one used to purchase equipment, so making a claim will not impact your unit’s budget.

How Much Do I Pay If I Don't Win?

If your injury claim is not successful then you won’t have to pay your solicitor any fees.
