ELKHART — An Elkhart metal company denies responsibility in response to a worker’s claim that he lost four fingers to a machine.

A worker at Kampco Steel Products Inc. says in a lawsuit that four fingers on his right hand were amputated by a Cincinnati press, which was the result of company negligence. John Parker, of South Bend, says the company failed to keep the equipment in good working order and free from defect due to lack of maintenance and other routine care.
