No matter who you are, life involves risks. We're here to help you deal with the outcome the best way possible.
Whether you're pursuing or defending, we can make a difference to the settlement. The industry has been through a turbulent period with the market becoming more competitive, courts being inconsistent with valuing claims and constantly evolving lines of argument for both pursuers and defenders. Despite these obstacles, and as a result of our team keeping up with recent court decisions, we continue to increase the average claim award achieved for our clients.
We can help you pursue all types of claim particularly those arising out of road traffic accidents, personal injury, and contractual and property disputes. We can also assist with claims against the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority and uninsured drivers. Our defender work includes road traffic cases, employers' liability claims, public liability and contractual disputes.
We act on behalf of clients throughout Scotland's Sheriff Courts and the Court of Session, in addition to Government departments and public bodies. We also represent clients at fatal accident inquiries and defend proceedings raised against them. And if your claim seems a little out of the ordinary, don't worry - we deal with that too. Many claims we've dealt with have involved unusual compensation claims ranging from damaged hedges to defective luxury vehicles.
While certain disputes may seem trivial to some, we understand that they are massively important to others. We often assist clients with boundary disputes, access rights and planning issues, to name but a few.
