Noise claims on the rise

The insurance industry is reporting that Government efforts to clamp down on whiplash injury claims have led to large numbers of new actions related to noise-induced hearing loss. This is said to be driven by unscrupulous claims management companies who are seeking out additional revenue streams.

A source has advised Post Magazine, the insurers’ journal, that one law firm has £12m of claims in the pipeline. Insurance firm Allianz have reported a claims explosion, with an increase of over 250% since 2010.
