The unnamed female was working for ThyssenKrupp Tallent - a worldwide car parts manufacturer with around 1,600 employees - when she fractured and burned the middle finger on her left hand while using a welding machine.
She was operating the equipment in August last year in order to fix nuts onto vehicle components when the digit became trapped in between two parts of the machine.
This resulted in her sustaining a fracture as well as an electrical burn, which means she still does not have full feeling back in the affected area and had to take four months off work.
In a case heard at South Walls Magistrates' Court, ThyssenKrupp Tallent admitted breaching health and safety regulations, meaning the employee could be eligible for a personal injury damages settlement.
