Our client, now retired, worked as a baker for 25 years and was exposed to excessively loud noise without hearing protection. As a result, the man now suffers with noise induced hearing loss and some tinnitus.
Our client's employers did not provide him with any form of hearing protection for around 23 years.
Although a huge national company, the employer did not protect the client from loud noise exposure by either reducing noise levels, or providing hearing protection.
Our specialist workplace illness lawyers helped the man to recover £5,000 in compensation, plus costs, after his employers admitted being at fault for his condition.
If you or a loved one has suffered from hearing damage such as acoustic shock, tinnitus, and noise-induced hearing loss caused by conditions at work our solicitors could help you claim compensation. See our Industrial Disease Claims page for more information.
