    College Apprentice Accident Settlement

    Settlement: £14,000

    What Happened?

    Our client was an apprentice at a local college and working with another student. He was adjusting a machine when the other student turned the machine on when it was not safe to do so causing our client injuries to his fingers.

    How Tinsdills Helped

    Liability was admitted by the college’s insurers. We then obtained a report from a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. The Claimant had the tip of his middle finger amputated and underwent 3 surgical procedures. He was off work following all 3 surgical procedures however only had a nominal wage loss. He was left with some slight sensitivity to the tip of his middle finger. His ability to grasp some items was impaired due to loss of the tip of his finger. The adjacent ring finger was left with a small scar.

    The Claimant was an engineer and given the expert evidence we obtained, we argued that as a result of the loss of the tip of his finger, this may impede his future prospects in the labour market.

    Outcome

    Our client settled his claim for just under £14,000.
