Compensation awarded for industrial deafness and tinnitus

At What’s My Deafness Claim Worth our noise induced hearing loss solicitors have assisted hundreds of clients in pursuing claims for industrial deafness.

Our noise induced hearing loss solicitors have recently successfully pursued a no win, no fee hearing loss claim for a client who sustained noise induced hearing  loss and tinnitus working for the Metal Box Company, which is now known as Crown Packaging.

Our client worked for Metal Box Company primarily as a power press setter.

During his employment our client worked in the warehouse where lots of noise was created from the sound of tin cans on conveyor belts.

Our client also worked on a production line making 25 litre metal drums.  These drums had to be stamped into shape by large heavy machinery from flat sheets of metal.

The presses which our client operated which created the metal drums were extremely noisy.  There were a number of presses creating large amounts of noise.

In addition other parts of the production process used large industrial ovens and industrial welding machines.

Our client worked in a relatively small room with a number of large machines concentrated together.  As a result our client worked close to several large machines which created excessive noise.

The noise level our client was exposed to was so great that he was unable to speak to or communicate with his colleagues even if he shouted to somebody near to him.  Our client and his colleagues would communicate by sign language.

For the first 10 years of our client’s employment at Metal Box, he was not provided with any form of hearing protection.

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

Our client enquired with What’s My Deafness Claim Worth to find out how to claim industrial deafness compensation.

Our client’s claim was disputed by his former employer but our specialist noise induced hearing loss solicitors were able to successfully pursue the claim and our client received £3,000.00.
