Accident solicitor in Burray
If you are thinking about making a personal injury compensation claim, then you should talk with an accident solicitor in Burray in order to discuss any claim you think you might have and ask how much you would have to pay them if your claim were to be successful. Usually, if you have a successful claim, the defendant would have to pay your expenses, as well as their own legal costs.
What can I claim personal injury compensation for?
You can claim personal injury for a number of injuries and illnesses. These may be:
- A physical injury or work-related illness;
- A psychological injury or illness; or
- A personal injury that was fatal.
You can claim personal injury compensation for any illness, disease or injury suffered in an accident that was not your fault, but was caused by the negligence of another person.
How long do I have to make a claim?
Normally, you have three years from the date of your accident or the date on which you were first diagnosed with a disease or illness. If your accident happened at sea, or in a plane or an airport while you were in transit, you have two years within which you can make a personal injury compensation claim.
How the claim process works
An accident solicitor in Burray, or elsewhere in the UK, will probably give you a first appointment free so that they can ascertain whether or not you have a case for filing a compensation claim. You have to be able to prove negligence on the part of another person in order to make a successful claim. If you find an accident solicitor in Burray (for example), then you should make sure that they have the experience you need to deal with your type of compensation claim. For example, if you want to file a claim for medical negligence, don’t go to a road traffic accident solicitor in Burray.
There were changes to the law regarding personal injury compensation claims which came into force on the 1st April 2013. The winning party will now contribute up to 25% of the “success fee,” which the winning solicitors normally charge and which used to be paid in full by the losing side’s insurance policy.
