When a compensation claim in Perth would have been laughed at
There have been inhabitants in Perth since prehistoric times, on a natural mound, slightly raised above the River Tay, away from the flood plains.
8000 years ago, Mesolithic hunter-gatherers were known to have been in the surrounding areas and there are Neolithic standing stones and circles dating back to about 4000 BC.
The Stone of Destiny sits in Scone Abbey and this was where the King of Scots was crowned, making Perth a very important town
The traders of the town were clever people who started trading in Spanish silk and French wine, and in the 12th century it was one of the richest areas of Scotland. Over the next five centuries, because of its prosperity and location, major industries were attracted to Perth, industries like whiskey, linen, leather and bleach.
As manufacturing industries have declined, they have been replaced by service industries, such as banking and insurance and today Perth is still a hive of activity, often being called the Gateway to the Highlands.
A compensation claim in Perth would be laughable
Back in the days of the industrial revolution, if you had an accident at work there would have been no chance of making a compensation claim in Perth, in fact you would probably have been laughed out of town.

- A road traffic accident
- A work related accident
- Industrial disease or illness
- A slip, trip or fall in a public place
- Defective products
Why you would make a compensation claim in Perth
If you are injured in an accident, no matter how it happened, it will have been a traumatic experience. The injuries themselves can range from minor things, such as cuts and bruises, to major injuries that make you disabled and can even result in a fatality. Those injuries can be life changing, mean you have to give up work, cannot look after yourself any more, and you might need to move home. Your compensation claim in Perth may therefore be made up of several items including:
- Pain and suffering
- Anxiety and stress
- Loss of earnings
- Extra medical expenses
- Travel costs
- Home adaption costs
- Car costs
- Replacement equipment or accessory costs
- Any other cost or loss that is a direct result of the accident
