Our client worked in a bottle making factory all of his working life for Robert McBride Limited from 1970-2005.
Over the course of his employment, our client was exposed to excessive noise from different types of machinery.
When our client was diagnosed with noise induced hearing loss, he pursued a claim with our specialist industrial diseases team, who achieved a compensation settlement following negotiation with the employer.
It was found that our client was not given proper ear protection by the employer.
£8,000 in noise induced hearing loss compensation was successfully obtained.
Mark Allen, who was acting for our client, said: "I am pleased that my client has been compensated for his hearing loss by his former employer. He was not given ear protection until it was too late and the damage had been done".
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.
