Katie Ward has already been awarded £80,000 in damages following the incident - which took place as she completed a placement with Allies and Mason - but is now suing the company for more on the basis her injury has forced her to change career path, the Daily Mail reports.
The 28-year-old graduated from the Bournemouth Arts Institute with a first-class honours degree in model making in July 2006 and planned to make a living in this industry.
However, these plans were curtailed when she accidentally cut off her left index finger with an unguarded saw at premises owned by Allies and Mason.
Despite the fact the digit was subsequently reattached, she suffers with limited movement and now works in administration for a college instead of pursuing a career in design.
