Frozen Food Factory Operative Receives £4,000 Compensation for Hearing Loss.

 
 
 

Mrs M was exposed to excessive levels of noise, whilst working in the frozen food industry for a period of over 5 years for Birds Eye Walls Limited.

She was employed as a factory operative and exposed to the noise from the conveyor belts, food dispensing machines, packing machines and multi vac machines for the duration of her shifts.

During her employment our client was never provided with hearing protection nor was she ever made aware of the dangers of working in noise. Mrs M now suffers from mild noise induced hearing loss which was confirmed when she underwent a medical examination.

WE Solicitors were able to negotiate an out of court settlement of £4,000 avoiding the need for court proceedings. Our client was happy with the outcome.
