    Accident Lawyers In Dumbarton

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Dumbarton

    When you have suffered an accident and sustained a serious injury because of it, you may want to use accident lawyers in Dumbarton to make a claim for compensation. Compensation will help you to pay for the time off work you need to recover, as well as any additional expenses which have been incurred from your accident and injury. Not only this, but a compensation claim can help with the emotional fallout from a serious accident, and help you to come to terms with what has happened. Before you can find accident lawyers in Dumbarton and make a compensation claim, though, you need to be sure that someone else was at fault for your accident, and working out who was at fault can be one of the more difficult parts of making your claim.

    Duty of care and negligence

    One of the reasons you may be able to make a claim is if someone has a duty of care to you, and has not done everything that they should have done to keep you safe. Both organisations and individuals can have a duty of care to you, including:

    • Your employer
    • Your doctor
    • Shops, bars and restaurants
    • Teachers
    • Your local council

    If the person who has a duty of care to you has breached this and thus caused you to have an accident, they are said to have been ‘negligent’ and this gives you a good case for compensation. Acts of negligence could be everything from an employer not giving you the tools you need to do your job properly, to a shop owner failing to mop the floors after a spill, and thus causing you to slip and hurt yourself.

    What happens if you are partly to blame?

    One of the things which puts people off making a claim for compensation is if they feel that they have partly contributed to their accident. However, a claim can still be made if you have partly caused the accident, because someone else was also to blame. All that will happen here is that there will be a reduction in the amount of compensation that you get, to reflect your own part in the accident.
