Successful claim for hearing loss due to heavy industry

What’s My Deafness Claim Worth has successfully pursued a claim for a client who sustained hearing loss as a result of working in heavy industry.

Our client worked for about a year in a lemonade factory as a bottle washer. The bottles would constantly move on rollers, generating considerable noise in a confined space. The noise was such that our client had to shout to be heard by colleagues near to him.

Our client was then employed for over 35 years as a miner. He operated coal face machines which cut coal in the mines. The machines included a Dosco Roadheader and a Lenorse Miner.

Our client worked at Westoe Colliery in South Shields and at Ellington Colliery near Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Ellington was the last operating deep coal mine in the North East of England. Our client worked there until it closed in 2005.

When working in the mines, the noise levels were extremely loud. It was so noisy that our client was unable to communicate with his colleagues at all while the machines were running.

As a result of his exposure to noise, our client sustained noise induced hearing loss.

Our specialist industrial deafness solicitors were able to successfully pursue a deafness claim for our client, who recovered £2500 compensation.
