Successful hearing loss claim for former coppersmith with hearing loss and tinnitus

What’s My Deafness Claim Worth have successfully recovered compensation for a client who sustained hearing loss and tinnitus as a result of being exposed to excessive levels of noise throughout his working life.

Our client spent his entire working life employed working in a power station. He was a coppersmith and his work involved considerable periods of time grinding copper. This was part of the  process of making copper rotors.

Our client used grinders for around two hours each day throught his working life. These were air powered, which produced considerable noise. The grinding itself was also extremely loud.

When our client was grinding, he would struggle to communicate with collegaues nearby, even by shouting.

Our client was not given any hearing protection by his employer for the first 27 years of his employment.

Our client retired in 2015. Shortly after this he developed difficulty hearing and a buzzing in his ears and was diagnosed with noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus.

Our specialist hearing loss solicitors took on the claim on a no win, no fee basis. Initially our client’s former employer disputed the claim, however, we were able to successfully recover £4,000 compensation for our client.
