Mr Stephen McGregor was exposed to excessive levels of noise, whilst working for British Leather, Ductavent and General Motors UK Limited (Vauxhall). Mr McGregor was exposed to excessive noise on a daily basis with each employer. He was never provided with any hearing protection nor was he given any training on the dangers of exposure to excessive noise.
Mr McGregor now suffers from mild noise induced hearing loss and mild 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 Mr McGregor’s claim.
WE Solicitors were able to negotiate an out of court settlement of £5,000 for Mr McGregor, avoiding the need for court proceedings. Both Mr McGregor and WE Solicitors are very pleased with the outcome.
