Accident claim in West Lothian


Want to know more about making an accident claim in West Lothian? If so we’ve put this article together to answer a few of the more common questions that might be going through your mind.

How can I make an accident claim in West Lothian

First you need to assess your chances of winning. The law says that you will be entitled to compensation if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault within the last three years. You’ll have to prove the severity of the accident and demonstrate to the full satisfaction of the court that the other side was at fault. Because this is working through the courts, the onus of proof will fall onto you.

How does it differ in Scotland?

There are a few small differences in the way claims are made in Scotland which is why some firms refuse to take cases from north of the border. These revolve around the amount you pay and the way in which claims go to court – if they get that far. However, the differences are pretty tiny so this doesn’t affect our service. We regularly work with people looking to make an accident claim in West Lothian and in other parts of Scotland – and will continue to do so.

How much compensation can I receive?

This is a difficult question to answer because every claim is as different as the individual bringing it. However, what we can do is offer a guide. On our website you’ll see something called the 30 second test. This tells you what the average rates of compensation are for different types of claims. However your case will have its own characteristics which will determine your chances of being successful. This figure, though, should be useful as a guide.

Where can I find a lawyer?

There are lawyers all over the place, but not all of them will be suitable. To give you the best chance of winning you’ll need someone who specifically works with your type of case. He or she will provide all the help and assistance you need and ensure that no matter what happens you won’t be short of information when making a claim.

How will I pay?

The way in which you pay for compensation claims has changed a little over the last few years – so much so that it can be difficult to keep up. However, when you work with Accident Advice Helpline we’ll work on the basis of no win no fee* which means if you don’t win you don’t have to pay.
