Worker receives compensation after hand crushed in machine

The personal injury team at Thompsons NI has secured more than £20,000 for the employee of a major food production company whose hand became trapped in the machinery he was operating.

He was working on the production machine, but there was no safety barrier installed, causing his hand to become trapped and crushed in the machinery whilst it was in operation. A safety barrier should have been present, preventing the worker's injury.

After he contacted Thompsons NI Solicitors, risk assessments were undertaken and the system of work has now changed. A safety barrier has also been installed to the production machine.

The client said: I couldn't fault the service I have received; I am very pleased with the outcome of my case.
