Car accident in Dumfries

If you were involved in a car accident in Dumfries and would like to make a claim for personal injury compensation, contact Accident Advice Helpline today.

Lying in the midst of the majestic Southern Upland Hills, and within easy driving distance of lochs, rivers and castles, the market town Dumfries has deeply embedded and lasting connections to Scottish history.

Gretna Green, famed for romantic elopements, is a stones throw away, while celebrated poet Robert Burns chose to spend his final years there. The Big Burns Supper festival, celebrating the Scottish bard’s contribution to literature and culture, takes place annually, providing music, entertainment and activities for young and old to enjoy.

It also promotes local artists, writers, performers and musicians from the area. Honouring the traditions already established by Burns Night and Hogmanay, including haggis meals and local whisky, and incorporating some modern touches, the Big Burns Supper attracts thousands of locals and visitors.

Visiting can be a rich cultural experience but what happens if your night out is unforgettable because you have had a car accident in Dumfries due to another driver drinking and driving?

Can you claim if the driver was inebriated?

Not only is driving under the influence of alcohol or substances a criminal offence, it also has the potential to cause serious injury. If you are injured in a car accident in Dumfries you deserve to receive monetary damages for your suffering as well as justice in a court of law. There are several different types of injuries you could claim for including:

  • Brain injuries – One of the most devastating injuries is a traumatic brain injury, which can affect concentration, memory, speech, vision and the ability to control bodily functions. Normally, in the earliest stages of the injury, treatment in intensive care and possible surgery is required, followed in time by rehabilitation where appropriate.
  • Spinal injuries – In a similar way, injuries to the spinal cord can necessitate the need for intensive treatment and therapy. Sometimes patients suffer paralysis or disability which may be permanent and life-altering.

In both cases, around the clock care may be required, putting emotional and physical pressure on family members. Family finances may be strained due to the loss of income of the victim, and subsequent carer status of a family member. Special adaptations to the home and specialist equipment and transport may be necessary once the patient has left the hospital.
