Joshua Ward lost several fingers in a power saw accident in shop class in December of 2012. He can't use his left hand, but luckily he's right handed.

 

But he is limited in what he can do.

 

His attorney, Tom D'Amore of Lake Oswego says they hope to prevent such accidents in the future.

 

"Our objective hopefully is to prevent other schools who don't have appropriate saws get them too. Because these saws, even professionals using them, it's extremely dangerous.  One, should these saws  be in the school in the first place and two, if we're going to put them in there, you need proper supervision."

 

Ward claims his injury has cost more than 200-thousand dollars in medical expenses.
