Accident at work leaves man with hearing loss

Our specialist accident at work lawyers negotiated on behalf of this client and secured thousands of pounds in compensation for an accident at work which caused temporary hearing loss and left him with tinnitus.

Explosion in the workplace

Our client was standing a few feet from a heavy vehicle when the driver started the engine. At that moment, the battery exploded close to our client, causing temporary hearing loss. He went to his GP the same day and was unable to return to work for several weeks. Although his hearing returned, he was left with tinnitus and severe headaches.

Breach of regulations

The defendant breached the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (known as PUWER) by failing to ensure the equipment provided was correctly maintained. Although our client was able to return to full time work he has been left with a condition which affects all aspects of his life, both working and personal.
