    Compensation Claim in Stirling


    English Law and Compensation Claims

    Current figures estimate that over 3 million people are involved in accidents every year. These accidents can vary significantly in their severity and can occur in a number of places; from the home and garden to the workplace or a public building.

    The one thing which unites many of these accidents is that they are the fault of another person and if this is the case then UK law gives the injured party the right to make a compensation claim in Stirling.

    Making a Compensation Claim in Stirling

    Many people feel a little concerned when it comes to making a compensation claim in Stirling. This is often because the process is a legal one, and many feel a little fearful when it comes to legal processes – especially ones they have little or no experience with.

    However the process of making a compensation claim in Stirling needn’t be something to approach with fear. Accident Advice Helpline have over 13 years’ experience of dealing with a range of personal accident claims and a 30 second test on our website could quickly help to establish whether you can make a compensation claim in Stirling.

    The Law

    Although the law does allow for people who have received injuries due to the carelessness or negligence of others to make a compensation claim in Stirling, there are a number of provisos. The accident or incident must have occurred within 3 years of the claim being made and must have occurred, at least in part, due to the act or lack of action of another person.

    To Establish a Claim

    In order to make your claim, you must have details of:

    • The date of the accident in question, the location and the details of what happened
    • The details of any witnesses to the accident
    • The details of any injuries, together with medical evidence if it exists

    It is with these details that Accident Advice Helpline can help to establish how valid your claim is and how likely it would be to succeed. Once this has been established then your case can begin.

    Fees

    In addition to the fear of the unknown which prevents people from making their rightful claim, many people believe the many myths surrounding legal fees. What they might not be aware of is that their claim could be made on a no win no fee basis. This means that for the injured party, there are no legal fees to pay and no up front costs. The only fees are those which are applied to a successful claim.

    Negotiating the Offer

    One of the main benefits of employing a company or solicitor to deal with a personal injury claim is their negotiation fees. Accident Advice Helpline’s extensive experience involves the careful litigation and negotiation of offers ensuring that our clients receive a settlement which properly acknowledges the pain and suffering which they and their family may have been through as the result of an accident which they did not cause.
