Accident Claims - Air Canada Pays Hearing Loss Compensation

A Ramp Co-Ordinator working for Air Canada at Heathrow Airport has been awarded GBP6,000 compensation.

    YORK, ENGLAND, July 09, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The compensation was secured by Britain's General Union, GMB, through its specialist personal injury solicitors Pattinson & Brewer Accident Claims.

Michael Honeker, aged 49, has worked for Air Canada since 1977. In 1998, he was transferred to the ramp baggage area. He was exposed to excessive levels of noise when handling baggage and working in the vicinity of aircraft, the engines of which were still running.

Mr. Honeker says:

"My hearing loss has gradually crept on me. I suffer from noises in my ears. It sounds like water running and sometimes there is some ringing. When noises are present, I find it more difficult to hear".

Representing Mr. Honeker, Paul Meehan partner at Pattinson & Brewer accident claims service says:

"Mr. Honeker worked in an area surrounded by noisy conveyor belts. The noise was contained because the ceiling was very low. He also was required to meet aircraft to load and offload. He worked close to the aircraft's engines. His employers could and should have taken precautions to protect his hearing."
