Accident claims solicitors in Glasgow
Given the number of cars on our roads it’s no surprise that road traffic accidents lead to the most personal injury claims. They can be anything from two drivers coming together to a pedestrian or cyclist being hit in the street. If the accident could have been avoided and you’ve been injured as a result, there is a very good chance that you might be entitled to claim compensation as a result.
By law we’re all required to carry third party motor insurance. This covers us for any injuries we inflict on other road users. It is this that you will be claiming against and the other driver’s insurance firm will have to decide whether or not they want to contest the case.
Fighting a claim
In many cases it will be relatively clear who was at fault. The other side may not even contest the case, but will instead look to settle out of court. It makes sense for them to do this as it reduces the overall amount of compensation they may have to pay out. You might feel tempted to accept an offer, but you should always get advice from your lawyer. They may start with a low offer in the hope that you will accept it and let them off the hook.
If they do contest it, then the case will go to the small claims court. You will be in the position of the claimant which means you’ll have to provide proof that your version of events are correct. If you can’t do that then the court will have to find in favour of the defendant as he or she will receive the benefit of the doubt. When making a claim get as much evidence as possible. This might include photographs of the scene and statements from any witnesses. As long as you’re confident about the merits of your case it’s in your interests to get as much information as possible.
