Hearing loss compensation for former ICI worker

What’s My Deafness Claim Worth’s specialist noise induced hearing loss solicitors have assisted a former chemical worker in obtaining compensation for industrial deafness.

Our client was employed by ICI at their chemical plant in Billingham, Teesside as a pipefitter and plumber. He was exposed to considerable amounts of noise from the industrial processes throughout the plant.

The Billingham ICI plant was a very large industrial complex and was extremely noisy in all areas.

Our client  needed to shout to be heard by his colleagues even if they were standing near to him.

The plant had some hearing protection measures, but these were inadequate.

Our client and his colleagues were provided with cotton wool plugs to place in their ears to block out noise.  These type of ear plugs have been found to be entirely ineffective.

The plant also had hearing protection zones marked out but suitable hearing protection was not available and other parts of the plant were also dangerously noisy.

Our client consulted us to find out how to claim industrial deafness compensation and our hearing loss solicitors were able to pursue a no win, no fee hearing loss claim on his behalf.

Our client sustained hearing loss as a result of his exposure to noise in the employment of ICI and were able to recover over £6,000.00 in hearing loss compensation for him.
