Claiming compensation in Perth and Kinross: what you need to know
If you are here because you want to claim compensation in Perth and Kinross for an injury you suffered after being involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, then we can help you. We are Accident Advice Helpline, an established injury law firm that provides obligation-free legal advice, and injury lawyers to help accident victims get their compensation on a no win, no fee* basis. Regardless of where your accident happened, providing that it did so within the past three years we can help you get compensation.
Your compensation will be paid to you either at the order of a court judge or, most likely, after an out-of-court agreement between the parties involved. Out-of-court agreements keep costs down for all sides, and if your solicitor recommends the figure that you are offered then you should consider accepting; you will not be ‘losing out’ by doing so. In fact, in some cases the figure offered is more than would be ordered by a court judge.
If your case does go to court, it will be a civil court; only in exceptional circumstances are personal injury claims criminal matters, to be decided before a jury.
Your solicitor will do everything that he or she can to get you your compensation quickly and with the minimum amount of input from you, but you may be asked to attend a medical for a third-party assessment of your injury. This is standard procedure, and is nothing for you to worry about — indeed, it is a good opportunity to get information about your injury from a specialist, rather than a GP.
Personal injury compensation payments are non-taxable, but if you received state benefits because you had to take time off work to recover from your ordeal, you may have to pay back the money you received. Your solicitor will be able to offer further advice on this when you claim.
There are numerous factors involved in deciding to how much compensation you are entitled, such as the circumstances of your accident, the severity of your injury, the psychological implications, the impact everything had on your life, and your finances. You can get an estimate of how much you may be awarded by using our compensation calculator, which you can find on our website: www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk.
