Altrincham-based Jefferies Solicitors aids toddler Lewis Lightfoot
6:16pm Thursday 14th June 2012 in Altrincham
NINE months after toddler Lewis Lightfoot suffered horrific injuries in a washing machine accident, his Altrincham solicitors has raised more than £3,500 for him.
The courageous three-year-old lost his left arm after he was able to open the door of the family’s washing machine mid-cycle.
The toddler, from Crewe, was dragged inside and had his arm torn off just below the shoulder and doctors were unable to reattach the limb.
Lewis’ family are now seeking compensation with the help of Altrincham-based Jefferies Solicitors.
Staff at the firm have been so touched by Lewis’ story that they have held a range of fundraising events such as dress down days and sponsored walks to raise money for the family.
Jefferies also pays for a taxi for the family to get to and from Alder Hey Hospital so that they don’t have to rely on public transport.
Michael Jefferies, managing director at Jefferies Solicitors, said: “When we met Lewis and his family, we were struck by the strength and courage they have shown throughout this entire ordeal – especially the little man himself, who is never without a smile on his face.
“As well as pursuing damages for Lewis’ horrific injury, we wanted to do something separately to raise money to make life easier, and more importantly a little more fun, for him.”
Lewis is now adapting his injury, and it is hoped that he will be fitted with a prosthetic arm soon.
