Hi back in 2012 I went to my docs about my hearing, he then sent me to my local ENT to get checked out, short story I have deafness because of the work I done so I put a claim in against my former employer I finished there in 2005, anyway x employer agreed and settled out of court last month, so last week I applied for IIDB on the grounds of industrial deafness, had a letter back today stating that

I am writing to tell you that you cannot get iidb for the prescribed disease occupational deafness, this is because you did not claim within 5 years of the end of the job that was likely to cause occupational deafness, my point is shall I appeal as 5yrs ago I didn't know I was that deaf and its only been the last 4yrs its been proved that it was work that caused it, surely I have ground to appeal that it should be 5yrs from when I found out

anyone have any help on this

Regards DCA-King

I suspect that no one has replied because no one knows the answer to this question - it is rather a specialised area.


About the only thing I can think of is to seek advice from one of the hearing impaired charities who may have experience of a similar issue, or an organisation that specialises in industrial diseases if there is such a thing.
