Powered by Lindsays, one of Scotland’s leading independent law firms, Calio Claims brings a specialist offering to Scotland’s personal injury market.
With one of the largest personal injury teams in Scotland, we help people secure the compensation they deserve in relation to all types of claims, from road traffic accidents and slips and trips to complex medical negligence cases.
Our lawyers and support staff are organised into specialist teams which means that our clients work with people that have specific expertise in the area relating to their claim. This expertise, complemented by state-of-the-art case management software, enables us to provide highest quality advice and representation for our clients and achieve excellent results for them.
How we deal with your claim
When you contact the team at Calio Claims we will guide you through the claims process so you know what to expect. For each claim, we appoint a dedicated case handler who will seek to understand as much about your circumstances as possible, and will ask you a number of questions about exactly what happened to you, the injury you have suffered, the treatment you have received and the ways in which you have lost out financially as a result of your injury. We will then begin drafting your claim to be intimated to the party that caused your injury.
We will also gather evidence to support your claim. This may include things such as witness statements, photographs of the accident site, medical reports, medical or expert opinion, copies of any accident or police reports and anything else we believe will assist in making your claim.
It is always our priority to reach the best possible settlement without delay. In most cases, we aim to reach a negotiated settlement out of court. We may also be able to obtain interim payments for rehabilitation or care, before settlement of your case.
The expertise of our people is complemented by our state-of-the-art case management software. This ensures integration of all the relationships and processes involved in a claim, however complex, and enables us to provide efficient reporting throughout. We know how important your case is to you, and so we will always keep you informed of how your claim is progressing.
We offer support from the start of a claim through to aftercare and, as part of a full service law firm, we consider the wider legal context, for example whether a personal injury trust would be beneficial to protect a lump sum payment.

Throughout the whole process they kept me up to date at each stage and always responded to any of my enquiries fully and promptly. I truly believe I would have never got anywhere trying to get my injury claim settled myself. Lindsays really took all the stress out of my claim.” Client

I was happy with the compensation that I was awarded." Client
