Irwin Mitchell has represented a man seeking compensation for hearing loss, which was found to be attributed to working with machinery without ear protection.
The man, aged 57, during the course of his employment was employed as a machine operator, which required him to feed wool into a machine before filling boxes. As a result of the noise from the machines, the man would often have to use hand signals and shout to colleagues to make himself understood.
During his employment, the man was not provided with ear protection, despite the excessive noise produced by the machines, which were running constantly.
The man found in later life, his hearing was deteriorating and suffered from a constant buzzing noise in both ears.
The man therefore instructed Irwin Mitchell, who took on his case, and instructed a medical expert to provide a report regarding the man hearing loss. It was found the man’s hearing had been damaged significantly during his period employment and this could have been prevented with the provision of ear protection.
