ASD Solicitors assisted a labourer to obtain compensation after his left arm was trapped in a machine at work and then subsequently amputated.

The client suffered a traumatic amputation of the left arm after being asked to clean a large, cylindrical roller at his place of employment. The guards to the rollers had been deliberately disengaged. ASD represented Mr R from Sheffield, at the criminal prosecution pursued by The Health and Safety Executive, as well as proceeding with a claim for compensation. Richard Meggitt referred Mr R to a rehabilitation company namely The Injury Care Clinic. They allocated Mr R with a case worker who helped get the client’s life back together after the trauma of the accident.

Mr R was unable to return to work for his employer but, with help, did manage to secure permanent part time employment with a security company.
