Our client was exposed to excessive levels of noise, whilst working at Robert Fletcher & Sons in Greenfield from 1979 to 1998. Our client was exposed to excessive levels of noise, whilst working at Robert Fletcher & Sons in Greenfield from 1980 to 2001. Research conducted into hearing impairment tends to produce statistics drawn from surveys of either teenagers or senior ages! WE Solicitors have secured ?1500 for Patricia Martindale from Rochdale, who suffers with work related hearing loss. The very real problems of noise induced hearing loss challenging British armed forces serving in Afghanistan has been raised previously, yet it seems growing numbers of serviceman are still leaving the army in 2011 suffering with hearing loss caused by combat conditions. In 2010, a survey discovered that over two thirds of army soldiers had returned to the UK with severe and permanent hearing damage inflicted from excessive noise levels encountered during “close-combat fighting, roadside devices and low-flying allied aircraft”. This followed on from documented defence reports from 2008 that nearly 70 per cent of 1,250 Royal Commandos who had taken audiometric testing had revealed evidence of noise induced hearing loss, and over 400 categorised as of industrial deafness severity.
It has been reported that not only is the sound of exploding bombs and bullets firing during combat still causing a hearing issue, the firing of live ammunition during training exercises in preparation for fighting on the front line are adding to the problem. As a result, the Army has launched a campaign to warn all fighting personnel of the effects of weapons firing as well as from helicopters, tanks and other machinery. While one in 10 army recruits had previously experienced a significant degree of hearing loss following their tour of duty, and considered as being directly caused by “noise or blast”, by comparison, figures also show that the Navy had fewer than five medical discharges for hearing loss or noise-induced hearing loss since 2006, and the RAF reported “less than” five medical discharges for hearing loss and none at all for noise-induced hearing loss.
While during training, soldiers are only issued with standard hearing plugs, troops on active duty in Afghanistan are now supplied with “Personal Integrated Hearing Protection”.

RSR Law's dedicated Industrial Deafness compensation claim team will get you the maximum compensation you deserve - FAST. The Act stipulates health and safety regulations for the workplace which must be adhered to.
The amount of compensation you may receive will depend on numerous factors; the severity of your hearing loss being the key factor alongside age, loss of earnings and you future potential to work. Firstly by direct measurement of your Hearing Loss (audiogram), and secondly by investigation of your work history to substantiate the cause.
A loss of hearing in just one ear (Asymmetrical Hearing Loss) would need to be explained as it would be unusual for this to occur due to a noisy environment, unless faulty equipment or noise from predominately one side was experienced. This data is based on the number of new hearing loss disablement benefit claims being made each year from 2003 to 2013.
Yet reported cases of noise induced hearing loss also include middle aged men and women too. Earplugs and ear defenders have also been issued with commanding officers ordered to ensure troops are protected from the excessive noise levels generated from improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and other types of weapons and gunfire. The new system comprises custom-moulded ear plugs incorporated with a radio, inset, designed to help block out background noise, which still enables the wearer to hear normal speech. The noise made by the occilators was very loud and very high pitched, and I would be left with ringing in my ears after using them. Your employer has the legal obligation to follow these regulations and ensure adequate safety equipment and procedures are in place to protect your hearing.
In all cases someone else must be at fault, such as the employer by neglect of there duties. It is clear that manufacturing has the highest rate of Occupational Hearing Loss with 4 new cases each year for every 100,000 employees. According to one recent study, one in nine of adults aged between 45 and 54 possess reduced hearing function, while generally, one in seven suffer a more pronounced hearing loss. Martindale developed occupational deafness over a period of several years, working as a Card Room Operative at Clover Croft & State Spinners Limited. I have some deafness in my left ear that's been there for the last 10 yrs or so, but in the last 12 months ive got a ringing or whistling sound in my ears which is getting worse and driving me mad.
This may sound small but when you consider that the British manufacturing industry employs over 5.5 million people, then this figure equates to more than 220 people being assessed as having noise induced hearing loss each year, in this area alone. I left in 2003 but in the last year or two the tinnitus has gotten worse and keeps me awake at night. I've also started turning the TV up and I struggle to hear people talking in pubs and restaurants.
