Attwaters explained everything along the way in laymen’s terms and I felt I could ask anything.
“I was at work as normal and there was a jam in one of the machines. My hand was inside the machine when suddenly it just started running again and that was it, I lost 2 of my fingers.
The pain was just awful and there was blood everywhere. My fingers couldn’t be recovered and whilst I had surgery to try and sort them as best as possible, I was left with terrible pins and needles. The hand would start aching if I used it too much. I couldn’t grip properly either, so I was dropping things like my phone or cups of tea!
The mental strain was hard too, I just kept reliving the accident. I kept remembering the noise and the pain. It was all too much. I’ve never felt like that before. My wife noticed at home. It was like I was a different person. Returning to work was just not an option. I just couldn’t go back in there with all those machines running and they ended up letting me go.
Months were spent thinking about what I could do next.
I instructed Attwaters because I had lost out financially. There were a few years left on the mortgage and I wasn’t in a financial position to stop working. I managed to start up on my own doing some courier work, but I wasn’t earning anywhere near as much as I did with my other job. Attwaters got me compensation for my injuries, my loss of earnings and my future losses.
I couldn’t believe it. When the accident happened I was so worried about not being able to work, but Attwaters made sure we kept all of my earnings records and put through a claim for me. They made sure that I was compensated the right amount to cover my loss.
The team at Attwaters negotiated with the defendants and managed to prove that the machine was faulty. This was because the safety guard was missing and Attwaters would not give up. Originally the defendants offered me just a few thousand pounds, but Attwaters convinced me to plough on and get the medical evidence I needed to prove the physical and psychological injuries, and the impact they have on my life. I was really pleased I took their advice. They explained everything along the way in laymen’s terms and I felt I could ask anything. They were amazing.”
