Military Deafness – How Much Is My Claim Worth?

This is the most common question we are asked – and also the most difficult to answer until we have begun to investigate your case fully.

How much compensation you will receive will depend upon a number of factors including but not limited to:-

• The extent of your hearing damage and/or tinnitus
• Your age when the damage occurred and your age now
• Whether or not it was or is a factor in you leaving the military
• If it has affected your employment options post military service
• If you require hearing aids now or will do in the future.

Compensation for hearing damage itself in the UK is not particularly generous when you consider that we are talking about damage to one of your five senses. In military deafness cases we typically see general damages awards starting at around £10,000 and going all the way up to £100,000 for complete deafness. More often than not we find that special damages awards, money awarded to you on top of your general damages, dwarves the actual amount given for the injury itself. Special damages include items like loss of earnings, the cost of private hearing aids and retraining costs to name but a few.

The only way that we can truly value your claim is by accepting your case and starting to gather the evidence we need.
