NIHL compensation success

What’s My Deafness Claim Worth have recently settled a claim for a client who sustained noise induced hearing loss as a result of working for a number of different noisy employers in the motor trade.

Our client was employed by four different companies as a panel beater and as a paint sprayer.

Our client’s duties involved sanding down car door frames and bodywork using grinders and air chisels, he also used a pneumatic sander to prepare vehicles for painting.

When our client worked as a vehicle paint sprayer the painting itself was not noisy but our client was always working in close proximity to panel beaters and other colleagues using noisy equipment on vehicles.

Our client was exposed to excessive noise for a total period in excess of 20 years.  Noise levels were such that in each employment that he would have to shout to be heard by colleagues near to him.

Our client was not provided with and hearing protection by any of the companies that we pursued a claim against.

Our client noticed over the last couple of years that his hearing was deteriorating.  He struggled to hear conversation when there was background noise and he also had to turn the volume on his television louder than he had previously.

Initially our client thought that his hearing problems were due to wax build up then when he investigated with his doctor and had a hearing test he was told that he had noise induced hearing loss.

Our client made the enquiry with What’s My Deafness Claim Worth about claims for deafness compensation.  Our specialist industrial deafness solicitors were able to pursue a No Win No Fee hearing loss claim.

Initially all four of the companies that had exposed our client to excessive levels of noise disputed his claim.  We issued Court proceedings and as a result of our work on our client’s behalf we were able to recover over £5,000.00 compensation for him.
