How to claim compensation in Barrhead
If you are thinking about claiming compensation for a personal injury then this article will provide you with some useful information. Claiming compensation may not be as difficult or as stressful as you might think and as one of the UK’s leading injury law firms, we can make sure that you get your money.
To claim compensation in Barrhead for a personal injury, your accident has to have happened within the past three years and be someone else’s fault. This could mean negligence on the part of your employer, a car accident caused by a careless driver, a slip, trip or fall while out shopping or almost anything else – if you weren’t to blame for your accident you are probably entitled to compensation, regardless of where that accident happened.
The money you receive will be to compensate for the pain and stress of your injury and to pay you back any for any financial costs that your accident caused. These costs could be:
- Child care fees
- Travel expenses
- Money spent replacing clothing or personal items damaged in your accident
- Money spent on a holiday, outing or event that you were unable to attend because of your injury
- The cost of hiring a replacement vehicle while yours was off the road
- The cost of private medical treatment, or care
Please keep track of your expenses; if you are unsure whether or not you can claim for a certain cost, please bear it in mind and your solicitor will be able to advise you further when you come to claim.
If your claim is successful you will probably be paid after an out-of-court agreement, although some personal injury claims make it to court. If yours reaches this stage it will be heard in a civil court and should be over quite quickly.
Personal injury compensation payments are not subject to tax.
