Hearing loss advice, industrial deafness compensation and claims from UK specialist We Solicitors.
Over the last two weeks we have been campaigning in Northamptonshire and Gloucestershire raising awareness of our "Don't Suffer in Silence Campaign".
Noise induced hearing loss sufferer, Mr H, has agreed a settlement of £3,000 through WE Solicitors.
WE Solicitors have successfully represented a former employee of G Ratcliffe & Sons (Felts) Ltd of Shackleton Street, Burnley, Lancashire. He was employed during 1985/86, 1988/89 and then again from 1995 to 1998. He was employed on each occasion as a loom man and was exposed to the noise of the loom machinery, used to manufacture carpets.
Police have paid out more than £135m to settle claims by former officers who said their hearing was damaged during the course of their duties.
Mr Higham was exposed to excessive use of vibratory equipment, whilst working in the castings industry for a period of over 15 years. Mr Higham worked for William Lee Ltd of Callywhite Lane, Dronfield, Derbyshire, which is part of Castings PLC – the foundry group. Mr Higham was employed as a process operative and foundry labourer throughout. He was exposed to excessive use of pedestal grinders, 9 inch die grinders, straight grinders and linishing machinery.
