Will I have to attend a medical?
It’s possible, but if you are asked to go to a medical it won’t be anything to worry about. Medicals are there so that a specialist can take a look at your injury; an injury that may have only been seen by a GP. This is to make sure that you get the right amount of compensation. Your medical will be held somewhere local to you and won’t take too long to complete.
Will my claim go to court?
It is unlikely, most personal injury claims are decided in out-of-court agreements. If your accident claim in Kilwinning is one of the few that makes it as far as court, please bear in mind that injury claims are civil matters, so are heard in civil courts.
How long does claiming take?
Most personal injury claims are dealt with quite quickly. Your solicitor will be able to give you a time frame when you claim.
Can I get legal aid?
No, the government stopped legal aid funding in 1998, but you can still get your compensation without paying upfront legal fees by using a lawyer who will handle your accident claim in Kilwinning under a ‘no win, no fee’ contract, like the lawyers who work here at Accident Advice Helpline.
