Request a Free Consultation

A young man suffered the amputation of his hand just above the wrist when the die of a machine came down unexpectedly while his hand was in the path of the die. The machine was more than 10 years old and work comp exclusivity prohibited suing the employer.

Bill Winingham discovered that an outside company had been providing maintenance and repair work on the machine for many years, including work on the guard that only partially protected users. WKW showed that the guard should have been extended across the front of the machine to protect the young worker. After an expert report, Day in the Life video, and lost future earnings assessment, the case was settled at a second mediation for $1.8 million.
