FAQ - Personal Injury Claims Process In Scotland
How long do I have to claim for an injury?
To get an indication of the strength of your claim you should get in touch with us as soon as possible. Many types of claims are time-barred under Scots law so the sooner you start the process the better.
Usually, you will have 3 years from the date of the accident or negligence to make a claim. If you have any doubt about if you have a case you should contact our specialist lawyers.
We will take details of your claim, the accident or negligence and our specialist team will then assess the prospects of your case.
If we need any more details from you we will let you know. If we think your case has reasonable prospects of being successful we will take on your case and move this forward for you. We will add value to the service and advice we give to you wherever possible. As a full-service Scottish law firm, we know, provide and arrange support services that are available to you and your family.
Once we have identified who the negligent party is then we will send them written intimation of your claim. Most cases proceed under a Pre- Action Protocol - a series of steps to be taken to ensure everyone is aware of the claim and both sides are heard - and it is important that time limits are met by both us and the other side.
How long will my injury claim take and what do I need to provide?
We require documents to prove your losses and will instruct relevant experts in order to prove that the injuries were linked to the accident or negligence and the extent of your losses. This includes medical reports to show the nature and extent of your injuries. We will advise you on what we are able to input as part of your claim and guide you through the process.
Our aim is to achieve a conclusion for you as quickly as possible but we will ensure that any settlement is achieved on your behalf for a reasonable amount at the right time. This often means taking your case to court.
Your case may settle within the terms of the Pre- Action Protocol which means it settles without the need for court action. We understand the legal process and the impact this has on clients and their families so we will work with you to ensure that the process is as hassle-free and supportive for you as possible.
How much compensation could I receive?
Every case is different and compensation will vary according to your specific circumstances however normally you can claim for compensation for your injuries and any losses which you have suffered as a result of your injury (for example wage loss, damaged personal effects or good, travel costs, services supplied by relatives etc).
The amount of compensation you will receive will depend on the evidence available, whether the neglected party is fully or partially responsible, the losses suffered and any additional costs to you. In terms of your injury claim factors taken into account when assessing the level of compensation are the extent and severity of your injury, the long terms effects of your injury and the extent to which the injury has affected your life.
We have a personal injury compensation claims calculator to let you know how much you could be due based on your injury.
No Win No Fee - Funding your Injury Claim
For clients who do not have the benefit of Legal Expense Insurance (“LEI”), we deal with injury claims on a No Win No Fee basis, meaning you pay nothing if your case is unsuccessful. Even if you have LEI there is no requirement for you to accept the solicitors chosen by your insurers. You have the right to “freedom of choice” if you feel they do not have the expertise for your claim or even the right location.
A No Win No Fee agreement is also known as a confidential fee agreement which is an agreement you make with us so that you can make your personal injury claim without having to put up any legal fees upfront. So if your claim is unsuccessful the agreement states you will not have to pay any fees, helping to relieve any stress or worry throughout the claim process.
In addition to our No Win No Fee service we can access support, medical care and help for you and your family due to the relationships we have with support groups in Scotland and have offices throughout Scotland - Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Thurso, Elgin and Lerwick. We will fight for justice and fairness, we will do the hard work for you and are committed to making a positive difference.
