Why consider consulting a personal injury solicitor?

If you've been injured in an accident that wasn't your fault within the last three years, it is important to seek advice from a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible. We can assess your situation to determine if you qualify for compensation for a personal injury claim. Exceptions to the three-year time limit may apply, such as cases involving children or individuals with diminished mental capacity due to head trauma.

We will have an initial telephone discussion with you and ask a series of questions so that we can obtain all the relevant details required to assess the eligibility of your claim.

Everything will then be passed onto one of our experienced personal injury lawyers to assess your claim so we can advise if we are able to take on your claim.

At our firm, we guide our clients through each of these steps, ensuring that they understand their rights and the legal pathways available to them. Our dedicated team of personal injury solicitors in Scotland is committed to securing the best possible outcome, helping our clients through recovery and beyond.

Personal Injury FAQs

To maximise your personal injury claim, it's essential to maintain a thorough record of all expenses and losses linked to your injury or illness. Keeping detailed documentary evidence of these costs is crucial for claiming the full amount of compensation you're entitled to.

Solicitors assess the value of compensation in a personal injury claim by evaluating three main areas of loss: general damages for pain and suffering, past special damages for expenses incurred up to the date of settlement, and future special damages for anticipated losses.

In Scotland, the jurisdiction for a personal injury claim typically depends on whether the defender (the person or entity being sued) resides in Scotland or has their registered office here. Additionally, jurisdiction can be established if the incident causing the injury occurred within Scotland.

The time limit for filing most personal injury claims in Scotland, particularly those based on negligence, is three years. This period starts from the date of the accident. It is crucial to initiate court proceedings within this timeframe to pursue compensation.

There are several ways in which your personal injury can be funded. Once our specialist personal injury solicitors have looked at your claim, we will then discuss what funding option will be the most suitable for your claim.

This could be:-

• No Win No Fee

• Legal Aid

• Legal expenses cover

• After the event insurance

No, any compensation you receive as a result of your personal injury claim will not be liable for a tax deduction. In the event that you receive a sizeable amount of compensation, we have specialist solicitors that can speak to you and advise of the best way to manage your settlement.

 

Calculating Your Compensation

The compensation amount is calculated based on the severity of your injury and its impact on your life, ensuring that any settlement is reflective of your individual circumstances and the challenges you have faced.

Each of these points underscores the importance of considering a personal injury claim not just for the potential financial compensation, but also for the broader support in recovery and accountability it facilitates.
