(industrial deafness claims)
Our client came to us for legal advice regarding the difficulty she was experiencing with her hearing, in particular trouble hearing the television and struggling to understand others on the telephone.
Work history revealed exposure to excessive noise whilst working in a Mill as a winder within the weaving department. The clamaint would be exposed to loud and continuous noise from the loom weavers and other equptment throughout the day. No hearing protection was ever provided.
The claimant underwent an Audiogram which indicated bilateral high frequency hearing loss. The history of noise exposure at work explained the extent of her damage.
The case was successfully settled and the claimant received compensation for her hearing loss.
