Recycling plant worker wins large payout for finger tip loss

Kenny Jones was cleaning an aluminium separator machine when he found a piece of metal stuck between the drive roller and belt. He pulled the belt backwards to free the obstruction, but caught his glove in the conveyor belt. His hand was dragged into and around the motor. Mr Jones suffered crush injuries to the middle finger of his left hand and lost the tip of the same finger. He turned to personal injury law experts, Rapid Solicitors, to make a claim for compensation.
Mr Jones explained: “I’d tried to clear the jam with a hook. I was working to clear the obstruction as I’d been shown. Everyone just pulled down on the belt if it became jammed. We were never formally trained what to do to clear a jam, a workmate just showed me. The protective gloves provided were one size and just didn’t offer enough
protection.” A Solicitor at Rapid said: “We’ve won thousands of cases relating to the Provision and Use of Work Equipment. In this case, the employer failed to provide adequate protective equipment. Also, our client was permitted to adopt an unsafe system of work and not instructed in the proper method of work. We were able to quickly win the case and fight for a good settlement for his injuries.”

The above account relates to a recent, genuine client of Rapid Solicitors. Only names and places have been changed to maintain client confidentiality. All other information, such as injuries, accident circumstances and compensation amounts are accurate.
