Mr N worked in a quarry for over 30 years doing various different roles. Unfortunately during the first half of his career in quarry work Mr N was not provided with proper ear protection as he was subjected to the extreme noise of the explosions and loud drilling that took place on an on-going basis. This resulted in Mr N suffering major hearing loss in his right ear and occasional loss in his left along with experiencing intermittent symptoms of tinnitus. Michael Lewin Solicitors helped him to recover compensation of £19200 for his condition.
