Our client worked in the construction industry for many years and was exposed to excessive noise from tools and equipment working as a shopfitter. As the deterioration in hearing became more significant, our client came to us in order to pursue a noise induced hearing loss claim.
The claim was issued in the Sheffield county court which settled the day before trial with the defendants having admitted liability shortly before trial.
The noise induced hearing loss claim was settled for £12,000 the day before trial. Our client received £7,000 in general damages and £5,000 for hearing aids.
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.
