British Worker Loses Arm in Paper Mill Accident

Steven Lewenden, 34, was feeding paper into a machine when he was pulled in and trapped on a reeling drum. Eventually freed from the equipment by paramedics and taken to hospital, damage to Lewenden's arm was so severe that doctors had to amputate his limb at the elbow.

The accident happened at the closure-threatened International Paper mill in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire. The firm and the Health and Safety Executive have launched inquiries into Tuesday's accident, and company spokesman reportedly said that Lewenden received first aid treatment for his injuries on-site and was later transferred by ambulance to hospital in Aberdeen. Production on paper machine was allegedly halted for approximately three hours. An internal investigation is under way.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
