Accident in Broxburn


Claiming compensation after an accident in Broxburn

If you have been injured in an accident in Broxburn you are probably here because you are thinking about claiming compensation.

This short guide to personal injury compensation should arm you with all the information you need to make a decision about whether or not to claim.

Personal injury compensation

Personal injury compensation is a non-taxable lump sum awarded to an accident victim either at the behest of a court, or as agreed in an out-of-court agreement between the parties involved.

You might claim compensation because you have been injured (or made unwell) following:

  • An accident at work
  • A road accident
  • An accident in a public place
  • Because of using a faulty product or service
  • As a result of poor hospital/ medical care
  • An accident on holiday

Wherever your accident in Broxburn happened, you can claim compensation for any injury or illness that you suffered as a result, whether that injury or illness was physical and or psychological.

You have three years from the date of your accident in Broxburn (or the date at which you first realised you were injured or unwell) in which to file your claim.

Claiming compensation

To claim your compensation you will need to employ a solicitor; you can either use a solicitor who charges you fees along the course of your claim, or you can enter into a conditional fee agreement (‘no win no fee*’). The advantages of the no win no fee* system are:

  • That you don’t have to pay any legal fees upfront.
  • That you don’t have to pay fees if your claim is unsuccessful
  • .And that because your solicitor gets paid on successful settlement of your claim, you can be confident that they are working their hardest to make sure that that claim is a success.

Because any legal process is expensive, many compensation claims are settled out of court.

This keeps costs down for both sides, so it is quite likely that your compensation claim will be settled without you having to attend a court hearing.

It is possible that you will have to attend a medical. This is so a medical professional can make an impartial assessment of your injuries, this is a normal procedure and nothing for you to worry about. Your medical will be arranged at a time best suited to you.
