As a village in East Lothian with perhaps not a significantly large population, Gullane might not have too many accident solicitors in Gullane itself on hand. Somebody requiring their services might have to go to Edinburgh, which is only 20 miles away. This might not be a problem for anyone who is fit and active and can jump in the car or enquire about local buses, but for anybody injured and laid up at home, perhaps with sprained or broken limbs, the idea of travelling the distance or limping to the nearest bus stop is as appealing as going to the North Pole dressed in summer clothes.
What if you need an accident solicitor in Gullane?
If you are a victim of an accident that was someone else’s fault and are restricted by injuries, trying to recover at home, maybe just out of hospital, you can start your research from your laptop, tablet or computer to find out about the claims process. As it happens these days, many claims are started online and the majority are settled online too, so you may not have to go to court.
Who can help you to start your claim with an accident solicitor in Gullane?
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have been processing non-fault personal injury claims since the year 2000 and helping victims to win the compensation they need to aid their recovery. Hopefully we can do the same for you, by explaining the claims process to you and finding you an accident solicitor in Gullane (or nearest appropriate solicitor in Scotland) to advise you on your case. To learn more, you have two options:
- Take the 30-second test to check if your claim qualifies and answer the questions in the compensation calculator to see how much your claim is possibly worth; or
- Call our trained advisors and ask them to tell you how it works, and what your solicitor will need from you to prepare your case. They are available from a landline on 0800 689 0500 or a mobile on 0333 500 0993. The call is free and the lines are open 24 hours, seven days a week. If we can’t answer your questions straight away, we’ll call you back.
How much compensation will you receive?
There’s no single answer to this question. The amount awarded depends on how much the courts judge is right for the kind of injuries you have suffered and the impact on your life. Generally speaking, compensation awards take into account not only the pain and suffering but extra costs incurred by needing domestic support and the consequences of loss of income. It’ll cost you nothing to find out how you stand, so it’s worth making that enquiry call today. Phone now on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993.
