Sean, 68 years of age, Derby, £5,000.00

Sean was awarded compensation in the sum of £5,000.00 from the British Railway Board after suffering with Noise Induced Hearing Loss and Tinnitus, which he attributes to his noisy employment history. Sean initially thought he would not be able to claim any compensation because his employment with the British Railway Board had ended such a long time ago. But after speaking to CH Legal he learnt that it was still possible to make a claim.

Sean had worked on the railways for almost 50 years. During his employment he had a number of different roles. Some were noisier than others, and some were extremely noisy. He recalls one of the noisiest roles included working on the diesel locomotives, which he would do for long periods of the day.
