According to the Scotsman, Lucy Thomas is taking legal action against the Royal Blind School - an institution founded in 1835 - following an incident at the Jura House residential unit in Morningside, Scotland, in June 2007.
Ms Thomas was hurt as she tried to help a disabled child into a feeding chair when the girl went rigid and bent her hand back.
This caused the 29-year-old to suffer a serious wrist injury which resulted in her taking an initial two-month break from work before she then decided she could not return at all.
Ms Thomas required treatment at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and with a specialist and told the Court of Session in Edinburgh that she still suffers pain in the joint.
Her former employer claims she contributed to her injury by not following correct procedures.
