    Claiming compensation in Bathgate: what you need to know

    If you are thinking about claiming compensation in Bathgate because you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, then this short guide will provide you with some useful information about personal injury compensation and what you need to do to make a successful claim.

    About personal injury compensation

    Personal injury compensation is a tax free sum awarded to an accident victim either at the order of a court of law, or after an out of court agreement between the parties involved – most personal injury claims are settled out of court.

    To claim compensation in Bathgate your accident needs to have happened within the past three years and be someone else’s ‘fault’. For example, you can claim for an accident at work that happened because of an employer failing to comply with health and safety procedures, or for a road accident caused by a careless driver or a poor road surface.

    You can claim compensation for any injury or illness, physical or psychological. And it doesn’t matter how serious your injury was – if you had to receive medical treatment and it had an adverse effect on your life, and finances, then you can, and should, claim compensation.

    Your compensation will be for the pain and stress or your injury, and to reimburse you for any resulting financial costs or lost income. You can claim back money spent on:
