Injured people should go direct to an experienced solicitor for advice and avoid the aggressive marketing tactics of disreputable companies
A company responsible for bombarding people with millions of nuisance calls has been fined £850,000 by the Claims Management Regulator. The National Advice Clinic, based in Lancashire, which also trades as the Industrial Hearing Clinic or the Central Compensation Office, made nearly 6 million calls between October 2014 and April 2015 about noise induced hearing loss claims. Many of those called were registered with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) – which tells companies that they did not want to receive such calls. This resulted in almost 2000 complaints being received by Ofcom which is responsible for the TPS.
