WE Solicitors have successfully represented a number of clients recently who worked in the oil and gas industry. The clients contacted us as they were suffering with what they described as poor hearing and whistling or buzzing in the ears which would come and go (this is known as tinnitus). For some time they had believed their symptoms were due to normal wear and tear and their age. However having attended their GP’s and often being referred to the local hospital they were diagnosed with noise induced hearing loss.
