Our client worked as a Groundsman and Gardener for Leeds City Council for nine years.
It was established his noise induced hearing loss had been caused by exposure to excessive noise from petrol driven mowers, strimmers, shredders, hedge cutters, ride on mowers and tractors on a day to day basis.
A claim for work place noise induced hearing loss was issued on behalf of our client. The claim settled inside 7 months, with our client receiving £4,500 in compensation.
He commented: "I am more than happy to raise public awareness to people working in similar occupations. Some people daren't bring claims which don’t fit the "normal" criteria but I would urge them to do so".
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.
