Dundee client suffers foot injury after chainsaw accident at work

Man looking out to sea

Digby Brown are representing a worker in Dundee who was injured when the chainsaw he was using to carry out maintenance to some woods malfunctioned, kicking back and injuring him in the foot.  As a result of the injury, our client was off work for a number of months. Not being able to work and suffering a loss of earnings is one of the consequences of suffering a personal injury that affects many of the people we represent.

At the centre of this case is the provision of workplace tools and equipment.  Many people, like this individual in Dundee, use equipment which if not properly serviced or maintained can be dangerous. Everyone is entitled to expect their employer to ensure anything they are given to use in the course of their work is fit for purpose. Where this proves not to be the case, Digby Brown pursues claims for using the regulations which are in place to protect employees.

This case has been pursued by specialist solicitors in Digby Brown’s Dundee office. Our local office represents people throughout Dundee, Tayside, Perthshire and Angus who have been involved in different types of personal injuries, including accidents at work, road traffic accidents, cycling or motorcycling accidents and industrial disease related conditions.

If you have been injured in an accident which was not your fault, call us on 0333 200 5925 or complete a short enquiry form and someone will be in touch.
