You may have been visiting North Queensferry or perhaps you live and work there, when you had an accident that was no fault of yours. If so, you could now be contemplating the idea of making a compensation claim in North Queensferry.
You are entitled to claim personal injury compensation for injuries sustained in an accident that was not your fault, although sometimes we Brits think this is a bad thing to do. However it is a legal entitlement, even though you can no longer get legal aid to make a compensation claim in North Queensferry or one in any location in the UK.
Making a Compensation Claim in North Queensferry
Apart from making a compensation claim in North Queensferry for injuries resulting from an accident for which you were not responsible, you can also make a personal injury compensation claim for work-related illnesses and occupational diseases which you contracted because of an unhealthy or unsafe working environment. In such cases you have to prove (with the help of your accident or personal injury solicitor) that you medical condition was caused by your employer’s negligence.
You can also claim compensation for any illness which you had which was the result of another person’s negligence – food poisoning after eating out is a good example of this type of illness.
How to Make a Compensation Claim in North Queensferry
To make any personal injury compensation claim, you have to find a specialist solicitor who can deal competently with your particular claim. Although you have three years, usually, in which to make a claim, you really should try to make one as soon as possible, as some cases, such as medical negligence cases, take a long time to prepare and to get to court. The sooner you can file a personal injury compensation claim, the better, and the less financial difficulties you will find yourself in if you are unable to work because of your accident and injuries.
Compensation will eventually cover loss of earnings, the pain, distress and suffering caused and medical expenses. If your injury was a life-changing one, then you will be awarded a sum that will cover the costs of past and future medical treatment and twenty-four hour care for the rest of your life. It will also be for refitting your home to accommodate your new needs.
