Mr S suffered permanent hearing damage whilst working as a commercial tyre fitter. His employers failed to provide him with suitable hearing protection, despite having been aware the noise levels generated by his work equipment exceeded the legal limits at the time.

Aston Knight Solicitors obtained a report from a Consultant ENT Surgeon who confirmed he had in fact suffered work-related hearing loss and then obtained a report from an engineer, which proved the noise levels he endured were above the relevant legal limits.

As the defendants refused to settle, court proceedings were started but subsequently settlement offers were made, resulting in a very positive outcome for the client.

Solicitor, Annie Rana commented: “Noise Induced Hearing Loss (‘NIHL’) is a hearing impairment resulting from exposure to loud noise and often results from many years of unprotected exposure. Many people who suffer from NIHL also suffer from tinnitus, which is a ringing or buzzing type sound heard in the ears or head and can be incredibly distressing and debilitating. Exposure to noise at work can cause irreversible hearing damage. It is one of the commonest health problems and can be difficult to detect as the effects build up gradually over time. Employers have a duty of care to protect you from exposure to noise. If you’ve worked in noisy environments and suffer from hearing loss, your employers (past and present) could be liable”.
