Aberdeenshire is a large area of Scotland that is one of 32 council areas in the country. Ironically, it does not include Aberdeen. The name of the council area does not relate to the city either, instead coming from an old county of Aberdeen. Its area accounts for some 262,000 residents. The area includes many settlements, with some no bigger than a hamlet and others ranking as large towns. However, the odds of anyone in this area needing to know about an Aberdeenshire no-win, no-fee accident are long.
Of course, while that may be the case, there are a few unfortunate people who do end up getting caught up in an accident. Most of us are very careful when we go out and about, to ensure we do not put ourselves in danger. But if we encounter someone who does not pay that same attention, we might be injured because of something that person did.
Recovering from injuries in an Aberdeenshire no-win, no-fee accident
If you are injured in any sort of accident, your first task would be to get medical help. This should be done even when minor injuries are the most you need to worry about. Make sure you get the details of the other individual or parties involved if you can, as these will be required if you are going to go on to make a potential claim.
Your recovery will depend on how many injuries you suffered, and how serious they are. Broken bones would normally require a few weeks to heal, for example, although some more complex breaks may require surgery so they can be pinned back together. Sprains and strains may be quicker to heal, but again, it depends on how serious they are. There is also the question of how bad your state of mind might be after having an accident. Some incidents are life-changing, and you may find it difficult to get back to the life you had before. Counselling may be a good idea in some instances.
