But to help you get started, here is some basic information about making an accident claim in Penecuik.
The criteria for claiming
You can make an accident claim in Penecuik to get compensation for your injury, providing that:
- Someone else was to blame for the accident that caused your injury.
- That accident happened within the past three years.
- The injury you suffered was seen by a doctor (or a medical professional).
You can claim for any injury, major or minor, big or small, and it doesn’t matter where your accident happened; we have made successful claims for people who have been injured in car accidents, work accidents, accidents at home, at the park, the gym, the cinema – if it wasn’t your fault, you can claim.
Compensation is, of course, to compensate you for your injury, but did you know that you can also claim back money you have spent on accident related expenses? Such as money spent on:
- Private medical treatment, therapy, or care
- Other medical costs, such as medical aids and prescriptions
- Vehicle hire
- Vehicle repair
- Child care
- Replacing clothing or personal items damaged in your accident
- A holiday or event that you had paid for, but couldn’t attend because of your injury
Your lawyer will advise you on what you can and cannot claim for when you call us, so keep track of what you are spending, and keep hold of your bank statements!
