NIHL compensation paid following exposure to noise in the RAF.

What’s My Deafness Claim Worth’s industrial deafness solicitors have recently successfully obtained noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus compensation on behalf of a former RAF officer, who was exposed to excessive noise for over 30 years in the RAF.

Our client worked as an RAF instructor at various airbases throughout the UK. He was exposed to very high levels of noise working in close proximity to aircraft such as Tornados and Jaguars. Our client worked near to where aircraft were taking off and close to where they were being serviced in hangers.

The RAF provided our client with hearing protection, some, but not all of the time. Our client was therefore exposed to very high levels of noise. He would have to shout to be heard by colleagues standing a few feet from him.

As a result of his exposure to excessive noise, our client developed noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus.

Our client instructed us to to advise him on claiming for industrial deafness compensation. We arranged for our him to see an ENT consultant who confirmed that our client’s symptoms were caused by noise exposure.

We were able to successfully pursue a no win no fee hearing loss claim on his behalf and recovered £6500 in hearing loss compensation for his problems.
