One of Scotland’s 32 council areas, Midlothian is home to towns and villages including Gorebridge, Dalkeith, Penicuik and Newtongrange. The area is bordered by East Lothian, the Scottish Borders and of course, the City of Edinburgh. Many people living in Midlothian commute to the city for work, making the roads in this area some of the busiest in Scotland. If you’ve been injured in a car accident in Midlothian, you may only have yourself to blame if you were speeding or driving dangerously. But what about if somebody else caused your accident? If you’ve been hit by a careless driver or injured in a car accident in Midlothian where driver was over the limit, you may find you’re eligible to claim compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline could help you.
How have you been injured in a car accident in Midlothian?
Since 2000, we have helped thousands of people to claim compensation after being injured in road traffic accidents, and if you’ve been hurt in a car accident in Midlothian that was somebody else’s fault, we could help you too. Here are a few examples of the most common types of injuries we have handled claims for:
- Cuts and bruises
- Head injuries including concussions, skull fractures and brain injuries
- Eye injuries which could cause temporary or permanent loss of vision
- Facial injuries such as cuts, bruises and fractures
- Crush injuries
- Broken bones
- Back and spinal injuries
As you can see, some of these injuries are more serious than others, but you could find you’re eligible to claim personal injury compensation even if you have suffered whiplash or broken your ankle, as long as you have seen a doctor for medical attention. We’ll need to gather copies of your medical report as evidence when we process your claim for personal injury compensation, so if you didn’t seek medical advice, we may be unable to help you.
Who’s to blame for your accident?
It may be that the other driver was distracted behind the wheel – for example, using their mobile phone – or perhaps they failed to stop at a red light and caused a rear-end shunt. Whatever has happened, if you think somebody else is to blame, don’t hesitate to contact us. We will be able to tell you who is at fault for your accident and let you know if you’re eligible to make a 100% no-win, no-fee* claim for injury compensation. Don’t wait too long, as there’s a three-year time limit in place to claim, so call us today on 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
