Hearing Loss Compensation Success for Maintenance Fitter

Our industrial deafness solicitors have recently successfully pursued an industrial deafness claim for a client who has sustained noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus as a result of his employment in heavy industry.

Our client was exposed to excessive noise during a number of jobs in his working life.

Our client’s first job after leaving school was as an apprentice tool maker.  Our client carried out very noisy work in a machine shop.  His work involved using drills and lathes.

Our client was also employed as a maintenance fitter at an engineering firm and as a quality inspector in a manufacturing company.  In both of these employments there were very high levels of noise from heavy industrial machinery that our client worked around.

In addition, our client worked for the National Coal Board. He worked in a coal mine carrying out underground maintenance to cutting machinery and other machines in the pit.

In all of these jobs the level of noise our client was exposed to was so loud that our client would have to shout if he wanted to make himself heard by colleagues near to him.  Sometimes the noise levels would be so high that our client would be unable to hear his colleagues at all and would have to communicate via lip reading or hand signals.

For most of the time when our client was working in high levels of noise he was not provided with any form of hearing protection by any of his employers although at one stage one employer provided some hearing protection but the use of this was not enforced.

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

Our client contacted What’s My Deafness Claim worth to enquire about claiming for industrial deafness.  Our specialist Noise Induced Hearing loss solicitors were able to successfully pursue our client’s claim despite the fact that all of his former employers and their insurers initially denied liability.

Our client received nearly £2,500.00 damages.
