Balerno is a suburb of Edinburgh in Scotland. Its population is in the region of 6,000. It is known for its cultural events and attractions which include festivals and a wildlife reserve.
Despite its relatively small size, people still have accidents in Balerno each year. There are slips, trips and falls as well as road traffic accidents. When people are injured in accidents, an accident solicitor in Balerno can help them get the compensation that is due to them.
How to find an accident solicitor in Balerno
You can find a solicitor by using a directory such as the Yellow Pages, by using an Internet search engine such as Google to search for “accident solicitor in Balerno” or via personal recommendations from people who have had to make a compensation claim in the past.
However, making a compensation claim does not mean that you have to have regular meetings with your solicitor. Accident Advice Helpline deals with most compensation claims by telephone. Usually you will not even need to attend court in person, although you may need to attend a medical assessment to determine the nature and severity of your injury.
This means that if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you do not necessarily need to use an accident solicitor in Balerno to help you with your compensation claim. A nationwide law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline will also be able to help you and because they have over 200 solicitors, there will be one that specialises in your sort of situation.
How do I make a compensation claim following an accident?
You can make a compensation claim if you have been injured in an accident that was somebody else’s fault. You must normally make your claim within three years of the date of the accident. You can find out whether you are entitled to make a claim by taking the unique 30 second online test on Accident Advice Helpline’s website.
The amount of compensation that you will receive cannot be guaranteed because it depends on the circumstances of each case. The amount awarded will contain an element to reflect the pain and suffering, and will also include an amount to cover any wages that you have lost if you were unable to work following the accident and any other out-of-pocket expenses.
Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm that specialises in personal injury compensation claims and can help you ensure that you get the full amount of compensation that you deserve following an accident.
