Who are we?

Where we are able to prove an injury, we are successful in most claims.
We represent thousands of clients who have suffered hearing loss and tinnitus. We have recovered millions in compensation. Here is a summary of some recent settlements:
Mr H was exposed to excessive noise whilst in the employment of the Ministry of Defence from 1985 to 2010 as a gunnery instructor. His duties involved the training of infantry personnel in weaponry and fire arm use and necessitated him working with and in close proximity to weaponry and armoury. By reason of exposure to the excessive noise levels, he contracted noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus.
He contacted Claims For You to make the claim. Initial instructions were taken and the claim was started against the Ministry of Defence. His medical records were obtained and a copy of his work history was obtained from HM Revenue & Customs. A medical report was prepared by an independent medical expert to prove and value the claim. The medical expert was of the opinion that due to the prolonged exposure to the excessive noise, Mr H had developed noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus. The Ministry of Defence acknowledged the notification of the claim, but failed to comment on the issues of liability and the medical evidence, so proceedings were issued against them to progress the matter. Negotiations ensued and the Ministry of Defence finally accepted an offer that was made to them to settle the case. Mr H received £25,990 in full and final settlement for his claim.
He worked for 26 years as a fire officer. He developed hearing loss and tinnitus and came to us and we recovered £17,500 in compensation for him.
He worked as a fabricator for 19 years and developed hearing loss. We pursued a claim for him and succeeded in him being awarded £15,000 in compensation.
He worked for 14 years as a fitter and developed hearing loss. We recovered £14,400 compensation for him.
He worked as a telecoms engineer for 18 years. He suffered with hearing loss and we succeeded in him recovering £15,000 for his injuries.
