Successful claim for noise induced hearing loss for former pipe fitter

At What’s My Deafness Claim Worth we have recently successfully pursued an industrial deafness claim for a client who was exposed to excessive noise working in industry.

Our client was employed for around 12 years working in a factory which made gloves. Our client worked as a pipe fitter and maintenance worker.

Our client’s duties involved general maintenance of machines, installing pipe work, maintaining boilers, compressors and burners.

Our client worked within the factory. The machines he carried out maintenance on were noisy as were the production lines he worked alongside.

The levels of noise were such that our client would have to shout to be heard if he wanted to speak to colleagues working near to him.

Our client was never provided with any hearing protection despite working in an excessively noisy environment.

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

Our client enquired with us as to how to claim for industrial deafness.

Our specialist industrial deafness solicitors were able to advise our client how to claim for industrial deafness.

Our noise induced hearing loss solicitors were able to successfully pursue our client’s claim although the Defendant and their representatives initially attempted to dispute the claim. We were able to recover compensation in excess of £1,500 for our client.
