In an out of court settlement, a six figure compensation payout has been awarded to a Doncaster man who suffered serious injuries after an accident at work. Mr. Andruchiw was using an industrial saw when his hand came into contact with an unguarded saw blade. His thumb and fingers were all severed in the accident. Following specialist surgery, surgeons could only reattach one of his fingers. Unfortunately his other digits had been so severely damaged that they could not be saved. He had only be been provided with thin gloves as protection.
Mr. Andruchiw commented, “I’ve been on sick leave continuously since it happened but I go up to the Northern General three times a week and do work in a purpose built joiner’s shop there. It’s my therapy to keep myself motivated. I’ve never really been out of work since I was 15 but I am getting back into it and looking for a job.”
