Often, a personal injury through hearing loss case can be sometimes notoriously difficult to completely resolve due to many factors, not least due to producing hard evidence of a direct and sustained cause of hearing damage.
Mr Sullivan settles his Noise Induced Hearing Loss case for £5,000. Mr Sullivan was exposed to excessive noise whilst working from British Steel as a Foreman Fitter at Ebbw Vale Steel Works this caused him to lose some of his hearing. Although his employment and exposure to loud noise ceased in 1975 after many years his hearing began to deteriorate gradually. He was unable to hear the doorbell and had the TV turned up loud. Mr Sullivan simply put this down to the deterioration everyone experiences overtime. It was not until he underwent a routine hearing test and prescribed hearing aids that he was told part of his hearing loss had been caused by his noisy work. Mr Sullivan then contacted we solicitors who investigated his claim and agreed a good settlement without the need to go to court.
