It’s often fun to recite stories of outrageous personal injury claims from around the world. However, if you’re looking for an accident claim in Midlothian, things are a whole lot more simple and sensible.
Stories from around the world
Our cousins from across the pond are often cited as having developed something of a compensation culture. We see examples of stories in which a woman sued for millions of dollars when she burned her lip on a hot cup of coffee. Or another man injured his thumb when he was unsuccessful in opening a door – again the stated claim for this was in the millions.
How, you might ask, is it possible for these claims to be passed? Well, the answer is that here in the UK they would not be.
Making an accident claim in Midlothian
Here in the UK, there are strict rules surrounding what can and can’t count for compensation when you’re making a claim. You will have to show that the accident was not your fault and that the other side was to blame. Your injuries will have to be real not imagined – a burned lip will not inspire much sympathy from anyone.
Equally, you will be in a difficult position when it comes to court. It all works on the basis of innocent until proven guilty. You are the claimant so you will have to show to the full satisfaction of the court that the other side was at fault. If you can’t do this, then the chances are you will not be entitled to make any kind of claim for compensation.
