Mr S was exposed to excessive levels of noise, whilst working for British Telecommunications Plc. He was employed as a Telephone Engineer and exposed to noise from cranes, drills, hand drills, tractors and he also had to use oscillators for long periods of the day.
During his employment out client was never provided with hearing protection and nor was he ever made aware of the dangers that working in excessive noise gives rise to.
He now suffers from mild noise induced hearing loss and noise related tinnitus, which was confirmed when WE Solicitors arranged a medical assessment of his hearing condition. This was presented to the defendants, as part of the evidence, to support the claim.
WE Solicitors were able to negotiate an out of court settlement of £1500 for our client who was very pleased with the outcome.
