Amputation in Manufacturing Plan Settlement
Our client suffered a horrific degloving injury after his dominant hand got stuck in a press machine while attempting to find an air leak at a Pee Dee region manufacturing plant. After losing his middle, ring, and pinky fingers and undergoing multiple surgeries, the mechanic has been left with limited used of his thumb and index finger, relying on a prosthetic. Our attorneys established that an interlock device on the machine would have prevented the injury, leading to a $1M settlement for the man and his family.

When I got the call that my husband was electrocuted and tragically lost his life while at work, I was in shock and didn’t know where to turn for help. I am so grateful we found Liam Duffy as our lawyer. He immediately stepped in during our darkest hour with a plan of action that not only helped us through all the fears and unknowns, but he quickly identified the responsible parties, aggressively pursued our case, and made them pay. Nothing will ever bring my children’s father back, but I am thankful that their futures are financially secure thanks to Mr. Duffy and the compassionate, hard-working team at Yarborough Applegate.Natalie P.
