Serious Injury Claims In Scotland
Claim for a Serious Injury With No Win No Fee
No-one chooses to suffer a serious injury but you can choose your law firm. If you have sustained an injury you may be able to make a claim.
What is a Serious Injury?
- Brain and head injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Orthopaedic injury
- Burns and internal injuries
- PTSD & psychological injury
We will fight for justice and fairness for you and your family and are committed to making a positive difference. We have links with charities, healthcare professionals and other services that can help you following an often life-changing event.
How to claim for your a Serious Injury?
We will work with you and your family to ensure the best possible financial outcome and ensure that we do everything for you to maximise your health and wellbeing.
Our specialist injury lawyers will intimate the details of your claim as quickly as possible after the accident has happened. The details of the accident and injury will be sent to the party who is at fault and/or their insurance company.
Some insurers will often try to settle your injury claim directly with you and this can mean that you can receive less compensation than you should. If we represent you we will advise you appropriately should this happen.
We will ingather details of your losses, any documents that we need to prove your case and will contact witnesses as soon as possible.
How long do I have to claim after the injury?
The time limit for settling a case is usually three years after the accident. However, in terms of the compulsory Scottish pre-action protocol, your claim should be intimated as soon as possible.
With serious injury claims, we may not know the long term effects of the injury until sometime after the accident. However, we will get rehabilitation and care in place for you as soon as we can.
No Win No Fee - Funding your Injury claim
For clients who do not have the benefit of Legal Expense Insurance (“LEI”), we deal with 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.
Our experience has led to:
- Helping thousands of people like you fight for justice
- No Win No Fee claims
- Helping with Rehabilitation with specialist contacts
- Securing over £20m for our clients in the last 18 months
- 9 out of 10 customers would use us again and recommend us to friends & family based on client feedback
What can be included in my Injury Claim?
We can claim compensation for all aspects of your injury. You may also be able to claim for general out of pocket expenses, loss of earnings, care and assistance required, rehabilitation costs and various other expenses.
When can I make a Serious Injury compensation claim?
- If the accident was in the last three years
- If someone else was at fault
- If you have suffered injury and/or been off work as a result of the accident
- If you are out of pocket for miscellaneous expenses
