Compensation payouts have been agreed in settlement of industrial deafness claims made by Lancashire factory workers exposed to excessive noise at work.
Workers employed in factories and mills in the Lancashire towns of Pendle, Burnley and Rossendale are to receive compensation for hearing damage. Payouts have been agreed for workers whose hearing loss ranged from mild to severe.
If your hearing has been damaged at work you could be entitled to make a claim.
Claims examples include a payout for a worker employed by Smith and Nephew as a beam gaiter in a weaving shed. After prolonged exposure to weaving loom noise the worker suffered mild hearing loss and was awarded compensation totalling £3,250.
In a further claim case a former carpet weaver suffered mild hearing loss in a similar manner and was awarded £1,379. payout.
Compensation settlements agreed vary according to the circumstances and the severity of the hearing damage.
