The court of claims awarded Henry $5,000 for past pain and suffering, $5,000 for a permanent scar and $5,000 for past limitations on the use of 2 fingers. The damage award totaled $15,000 but the court reduced the award to $7,500, finding Henry's negligence contributed to his injury. Henry did not seek damages for lost earnings or incapacity.
