A Doncaster man received £6,000 compensation after suffering a hand injury at work.
Our client had worked as a Tooling Technician for Cooper Lighting & Security for 12 years when the incident happened.
He was using the milling machine to profile and shape metal when a spring failed causing the handle to swing round and strike him on the hand.
He visited his GP after a lump developed on his finger which was getting worse and causing him pain. He was referred to hospital where he underwent an operation and the lump was found to be a swollen nerve.
Following the operation, he needed 2½ weeks off work and still has a dull ache in his finger.
His work accident claim was settled by Sally Rissbrook of Irwin Mitchell after liability was admitted.
