Compensation awarded for hearing loss and tinnitus
Whats My Deafness Claim Worth’s specialist industrial deafness solicitors have recently successfully settled a noise induced hearing loss claim for a client who was exposed to excessive noise when in the employment of a manufacturing company who made metal vessels for storing oil and chemicals.
Our client’s job involved testing the finished vessels and to fit accessories to them. This work in itself was not noisy but our client worked in close proximity to where the vessels were fabricated.
The fabrication process involved boiler makers chipping out welded seams using heavy duty pneumatic chipping hammers.
The noise created by the boiler makers using the chipping hammers was a constant hammering, metal on metal noise and was extremely loud.
Even though our client was not carrying out the chipping work himself he was unable to speak to colleagues standing near to him without shouting.
Our client developed noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus as a result of his exposure to noise at work.
Our noise induced hearing loss solicitors were able to advise our client on how to claim industrial deafness compensation and were able to successfully pursue a claim. Our client received thousands of pounds of compensation in settlement of his noise induced hearing loss claim.
