How to Make a Personal Injury Claim
Making a personal injury claim in Scotland is not as difficult as it seems. Very often, there is no need even to go to court. Many claims are settled well in advance of going to court, and a proportion of these settle ‘on the steps of the court’.
Claiming Compensation - Accident Claims Solicitors Rutherglen & Glasgow
Over 3 million people per year are injured in accidents each year. In many of these cases, the injured party is not at fault. If this is the case, they are entitled to claim compensation. The first thing you should do when claiming compensation is seek legal advice.
In some cases, such as road traffic accidents, you will receive an offer from the other party’s insurers. Often this is well below what you could get if you make a claim properly.
Compensation is not decided on a case-by-case basis – the court is bound to take account of published guidelines which lay out the appropriate level of compensation for each type of injury.Before beginning your claim, you may want to gather as much evidence as you can.
Things like medical records, payslips (you may be able to claim loss of earnings), photographs, names and addresses of witnesses etc can all prove invaluable in claiming your compensation.
Once you enlist our help in making your personal injury claim, we will handle the case from then on. We will be able to explain how long your claim should take to settle and give you a rough idea of how much compensation you may be entitled to.
