    DIY store accidents: Cuts from timber


    If you have experienced a deep cut from timber and it was not your fault, you could be eligible to get compensation. You can also make a claim if you have been the victim of accidents in other environments, whether you’re seeking compensation for accidents at work or compensation for a road traffic accident claim.

    Have you suffered a timber-related injury that was someone else’s fault?

    People may experience timber-related injuries in DIY stores, in industrial environments, or in retail venues on their local high street. This does not only include customers, it may also include members of staff. For example, you may have suffered an injury after cutting timber at your workplace. You could be eligible to make a workplace compensation claim if you believe you received inadequate training on how to use the equipment, or no training at all.
