Can you claim? If your accident was caused by someone else, you could be entitled to claim. Third parties, who are responsible for your health and safety include: your employer, the manufacturer or distributor/supplier of goods you have purchased, owners of retail premises who have supplied you with food and drink, authorities or organisations responsible for your safe passage on a journey and transport system or in a public place or building.
What injuries can you claim for? Broadly speaking, any injuries resulting from the actions or negligence of a third party, and you will need to be able to prove their liability. You must have needed medical treatment for your injury. Hopefully you will have a medical or doctor’s report. Give it to your accident solicitor in Kirkintilloch.
How long do you have to make a claim? You must make your claim for compensation within 3 years. It seems like a long time, but bear in mind your accident solicitor in Kirkintilloch needs time to gather the facts and figures and to present your case. The defending party has three months in which to respond. (Although most claims are settled quickly, it’s important to know what the time frames are.)Open Claim Calculator
In our experience, most cases are settled out of court, but if it seems likely, your accident solicitor will discuss the options with you well in advance. Most defendants prefer to avoid the expense and delay of going to court.
