Successful claim for hearing loss and tinnitus compensation
What’s My Deafness Claim Worth have successfully pursued a deafness claim for a client who sustained noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus as a result of his exposure to excessive noise at work.
Our client worked for around five years in the garage of a large baking company.
Our client was responsible for servicing, repairing and maintaining the company fleet of approximately 100 vehicles.
Our client was exposed to considerable levels of excessive noise during his employment. He used pneumatic tools such as air guns as well as using sledgehammers to knock out metalwork. His employment was exceptionally noisy. He would need to shout to be heard by anyone standing near to him when he was working in the garage. He found that the noise was so loud that he would often have a ringing in his ears when he left work at the end of the day
Our client’s employer did not provide him with any hearing protection nor did they provide him with any training regarding the dangers of exposure to excessive noise.
Our client sustained noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus as a result of his exposure to excessive noise. He found that he had a particular problem with hearing conversations when there was a lot of background noise. His tinnitus took the form of a buzzing noise which he noticed particularly when it was quiet.
Our specialist noise induced hearing loss solicitors were able to successfully pursue a deafness and tinnitus claim.
Our industrial deafness solicitors were also able to establish that our client was exposed to dangerous levels of noise and that suitable hearing protection was not provided.
We were able to secure industrial deafness compensation of £5,000.00 for our client.
