If you have been in an accident that was not your fault, sustained bodily injuries in the accident, needed medical attention for the injuries and the accident happened with the last three years, then our injury lawyers throughout Scotland would be happy to assist you in making a personal injury compensation claim. Almost any type of accident you can imagine could result in a personal injury claim, just some of which are:

Settlement of the claim
Who settles the claim depends on what type of accident you have had, but most of them are dealt with by some large organisation, very often an insurance company. Some examples are:
- Motor insurance. The other driver’s insurance company would settle your claim. If they should be driving illegally and are uninsured, your claim would be referred to the Motor Insurers Bureau, who settle claims for uninsured and untraced drivers.
- Employers’ liability insurance would settle the claim if the accident was work-related.
- Professional indemnity insurance would cover the medical profession if you made a personal injury claim for clinical negligence.
- The Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA) deal with criminal injuries. They are a government-run body dealing with claims resulting from violent crimes.
- Slipping, tripping or falling in a public place would generally be covered by public liability insurance.
