Accident with machinery at work Our client, Michael, asked us to bring a claim against his employer for the accident he sustained whilst working as a steel fabricator. On the day of his accident, he had been working with an angle grinder to cut channelling when the tool clipped an edge and flew up cutting his left wrist to the bone. He was rushed to hospital where he was treated for his injury. Michael required an operation to repair tendon damage and has been left with altered sensation and hypersensitivity in some areas of his hand, which is unlikely to improve. We secured Michael just over £12,500 compensation from his Employer’s Insurers for his pain and suffering. See our full list of 'Accidents at Work' services.
