Aberdeen firm Grant Smith Law Practice has announced the appointment of Lisa Gregory as a consultant.
Ms Gregory, who joins from Digby Brown where she was a partner, has over 25 years’ experience as a personal injury lawyer in Aberdeen and the north east. Her cases include the Super Puma North Sea helicopter disaster in April 2009 and the CHC Helicopter crash off Shetland in August 2013.
She commented: "Despite more stringent health and safety laws and advances in technology, people in Scotland still have accidents all too often. Sadly, three of Aberdeenshire and Moray’s areas of excellence – offshore oil and gas, agriculture and fishing are some of the most consistently dangerous areas of work.
"My years of dealing with the aftermath of the serious injuries and tragic fatalities tell us that more has to be done."
