    Aberdeen sue for damages


    People in Aberdeen sue for damages for many reasons, from assault to road traffic collisions. The most common reason people in Aberdeen sue for damages is personal injury, but other reasons to sue for damages include financial loss through contracts.  You might also sue for damage to your property or failure of commercial contracts such as goods being paid for but not arriving, or faulty goods being provided.

    Do many people in Aberdeen sue for damages for road traffic accidents?

    Yes, the main reason people in Aberdeen sue for damages is because they have suffered injury and financial loss in a road traffic accident.  Personal injury is the most common reason to pursue a claim for damages and the most common personal injury claim is for road traffic accidents. The amount of compensation paid out in Aberdeen every year in relation to road traffic accidents runs into many thousands, so if you feel you are entitled to claim compensation, make sure you get the help you need to get the money owed to you.

    When you sue for damages, you are asking to be compensated by the party or person that caused your loss.  If your loss was caused by an individual, suing for damages can be unproductive as, even if the court decides damages payments are due, the individual may have insufficient money to meet their obligations.

    Road traffic accidents, however, rely on the car insurance industry. Insurers build the cost of potential compensation into their premiums and have funds set aside specifically to meet compensation claims. This gives people in Aberdeen confidence that if they successfully sue for damages, they are almost certain to receive the money that is due to them.

    Can Accident Advice Helpline support you to sue for damages?

    Yes, of course. The first step of suing for damages is to engage a specialist lawyer. As a national company, Accident Advice Helpline is ideally placed to help no matter the location.
