Maura worked for Killyleagh Flax Spinning Company in Killyleagh for around 2 years in the late 1980’s. This factory was processing flax into yarn and linen for the textile industry. She was employed in the wet spinning department of the mill. The flax, which she had to process, was called rove. It was pulled through wet troughs. Noisy spinning machines were operating in this area. There were approximately 12 noisy spinning machines running constantly. This took part in an open planned factory, which exposed Maura to the loud noise of machines every day during the course of his employment.
Maura contacted Millar McCall Wylie Solicitors about her hearing loss claim.
Following her time at Killyleagh Flax Spinning Company, Maura noticed that her hearing loss and tinnitus was getting worse with each passing year. Maura started searching for an injury solicitor who could help him with her problem. She read about our extensive experience in the field of hearing loss claims and decided to contact Millar McCall Wylie Solicitors. She had heard of other ex-Killyleagh Flax Company employees who obtained compensation for hearing loss who also had instructed Millar McCall Wylie.
Our solicitors acted quickly so that Maura could receive the compensation she deserved without delay. We arranged for her to have an audiogram. This hearing test demonstrated evidence of Noise Induced Hearing Loss. When speaking with a doctor we arrange for her to see, Maura also complained of tinnitus. A report was obtained from a Consultant ENT Surgeon which attributed both the hearing loss and the tinnitus to her time spent working in Killyleagh Flax Spinning Company.
The Defendant initially denied liability, and no offers were forthcoming. Proceedings were issued, upon receipt of a defence medical report we were able to successfully negotiate a settlement of £20,000.00, which Maura was delighted with. If you worked in Killyleagh Flax Spinning Company or with any other noisy employer contact Millar McCall Wylie today on 028 90200050 for specialist hearing loss claims advice.
