Our client was working in a factory that produces drinks cartons, when the accident happened. A fault occurred whilst she was working on the conveyor belt which resulted in her hand being caught underneath the belt.
The accident caused a deep laceration to the top of her hand and a soft tissue injury to her hand, and she needed surgery to repair the tendon as well as physiotherapy.
The production operative continued to suffer from pain and stiffness in her hand, a condition that is worsened by it being her dominant hand.
Owain Dodd at Bartletts Wrexham office was able to work with her and help her make her claim, quickly providing evidence to show the accident happened due to a fault or a lack of a guard on the conveyor belt, and that the factory was at fault for her injuries. In addition to securing compensation for her personal injury, Owain Dodd successfully won compensation for the lady for loss of her earnings.
