When a young worker loses his finger in a printing press, who's to blame? That's the question that's haunted a 20-year old man ever since his surprising accident.
Tariq was conducting some routine maintenance on a printing press when something went wrong. Typically, before someone can even start repairs on a big piece of machinery, it will need to be completely powered off and safety locked so that the gears couldn't move even if someone accidentally turned it back on.
Unfortunately for Tariq, none of those safety precautions were met. He was told that the machine was powered off and safety locked, so he jumped in there and got to work. The reality was, the machine was still on and no locks had been switched on at all. After a few minutes of work, somebody ordered some more printing and Tariq's finger was sliced off by a gear near his hand.
It's still unclear whether Tariq was intentionally lied to because someone just didn't feel like going through the steps to properly shut off the machine, or if the employees responsible simply forgot. Perhaps they'd told people "Don't run the printing press right now, Tariq's working on it." As this case proves, that's not enough to keep someone safe.
To figure out why this happened, there will be a lengthy investigation that will analyze the safe-guards, preventative measures and training regiments that employees go through. If it's determined at all that the business itself was negligent, they'll most likely end up paying Tariq a significant amount to compensate him for his lost finger.
When a life-changing workplace accident like this happens, it can be difficult for employees to stand up for themselves. In Tariq's case, he can no longer do the job he was hired for and trained to do, because the loss of his finger impedes his ability to fix machinery. To get the justice and the compensation he needs to move forward with his life, he'll want a great lawyer and a powerful Pre-Settlement Funding firm. That's where we come in.
