Nearly £3,000 in hearing loss compensation secured for former steelworker
What’s My Deafness Claim Worth have recently settled a claim for noise induced hearing loss compensation for a client, arising out of him spending twelve years working for a specialist steelmaking company.
Our client was employed as a plater in the fabrication shop. Most of his working day was spent hammering metal items, alongside around 20 other platers all doing the same work.
There were also around 25 welders working in the same area, as well as a 25 tonne overhead crane.
All of the processes in the fabrication shop occurred constantly, creating an extremely loud working environment.
The noise levels were so loud that if our client wanted to communicate with colleagues he would have to shout for them to hear him.
For around the first ten years our client worked for the steelmaking company, he was not provided with any hearing protection. In the last couple of years, he was given sponge ear plugs.
As a result of constant noise exposure over a ten year period, our client sustained noise induced hearing loss.
Fortunately, our client did not develop any symptoms of tinnitus, although excessive noise exposure will often cause tinnitus as well as hearing loss.
Our specialist hearing loss solicitors successfully pursued a no win no fee hearing loss claim for our client and recovered nearly £3,000 in hearing loss compensation for him.
