Accident at work leaves Highland man with severe neck injuries

Man looking out to sea

Digby Brown’s client was injured in an accident at work.  The heavy industrial vehicle he was driving overturned while attempting to clear a forest path in severe weather in the north of Scotland.  He was left with severe neck injuries.

The individuals’ injuries were not initially diagnosed. By the time they were, he faced an operation which carried the risk of long term impairment if unsuccessful. The operation was a success but our client was not able to return to work, causing him significant stress and financial worry. 

Using our comprehensive legal expense and insurance package, we were able to ensure our client got the medical treatment and expert opinions needed to prove his case and, after rejecting two initial offers that under-valued his claim, we secured £30,000 in compensation, giving him financial peace of mind.
