Claim case example:

If you are suffering hearing damage caused by exposure to noise at work call our hearing loss team for no-obligation legal advice.

We represented Mr H, a local authority road maintenance worker from South Yorkshire, in his claim against his employer.

For 20 years Mr H had operated jack hammers without being offered ear defenders or warned of potential damage to his hearing.  After prolonged exposure to noise his ability to hear clearly was reduced and he was diagnosed with mild hearing loss.

His local authority employer refused to accept his claim for compensation, stating that his hearing was not damaged. With the help of a hearing expert we were able to prove a) he was suffering mild hearing loss, b) the loss was due to his job and c) his employer was at fault.

A compensation payout was won in the amount of £4,750.
