People who have suffered accidents that were not their fault in Scotland generally fall into two groups.
The first group of people do not realise that the accident was someone else’s fault or may not realise that they may be able to make a claim for compensation. Therefore, they are not searching for a compensation company in Scotland.
The second group of people are very confident that they were not at fault for the accident and are actively looking to make a claim for compensation. They are clear that they want to find a compensation company in Scotland and that they want to make a claim.
Who needs a compensation company in Scotland?
In fact, both of the above groups of people need a compensation company in Scotland. A company like Accident Advice Helpline provide a complete package of services which can help both of these groups of injured people.
I don’t need a compensation company in Scotland
There are some people who definitely will not need a compensation company in Scotland. These are the people who have not been injured in the accident. This is because you are only entitled to make a personal injury claim if you have been injured – that is a physical or psychological injury. It is always a good idea to visit your doctor to get some good early advice about your injury and to get your injuries documented (recorded).
The accident was no-one’s fault
A very small number of accidents are no-one’s fault and in these cases there really is no-one to claim from and a compensation company in Scotland like Accident Advice Helpline cannot help you. However, the majority of accidents are actually someone else’s fault. Workplace accidents are frequently the fault of an employer because they did not protect the health and safety of their workers adequately. There may have been faulty equipment, machinery or the workplace may have presented hazards to safety.
Road traffic accidents are frequently the fault of one of the drivers involved because they exercised poor judgement, were reckless or had a momentary lapse of concentration. You can show who was at fault for the accident through your account of what happened, witness statements and sketches and photographs of the scene. Accident Advice Helpline will collate all of these for you.
Slips, trips and falls in the street or in a shop often look as if they were no-one’ s fault. It was you that fell over after all! In fact, if you look closely at the scene of the accident you may have fallen over something that should not have been there.
May be a trailing cable had not been fixed against a wall or a walkway may have been cluttered with debris due to poor housekeeping. Perhaps the area was poorly lit. These are all important factors in showing that someone was to blame for your accident and for you getting hurt.
Accident Advice Helpline has a team of highly trained advisers who can advise you on who was to blame for the accident.
