You may have stayed in Peterculter if you have visited Scotland’s Cairngorm National Park, as it has now become a tourist base for exploration of the hills and moors around it and Aberdeen. It is popularly known as Culter, which, in Scots Gaelic means ‘back part’ of a country. If you have been involved in an accident and injured, you may be looking for a firm of expert injury solicitors in Peteculter, and you may not find any. You would probably have to look for them in Aberdeen. If you are unable to locate a firm of expert injury solicitors in Peterculter, or ones based where you live, call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our helpline numbers given below.
Why would you need expert injury solicitors in Peterculter?
You may be looking for a firm of injury solicitors in Peterculter, or ones based elsewhere, because you have been injured in an accident which you can prove, with their help, was not your fault. If the accident occurred in the British Isles, you usually have three years in which to file a claim. However, there are some accidents, such as those that happen at sea, in the air, or at most airports in the world, for which you only have two years in which to file a claim for injuries.
You may also be searching for a firm of injury solicitors in Peterculter, for example, if you have been diagnosed with an illness within the last three years, which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. This might be a local restaurant owner, for example, if you have needed medical treatment for food poisoning. If you can prove that the negligence of kitchen staff caused your illness, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against the restaurateur.
Victim of a violent crime?
If you were injured during a crime, and you did nothing to provoke the assault, you may be entitled to claim for your injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority if the crime occurred in England, Wales or Scotland. If it took place in Northern Ireland, you may be eligible to make a claim through the Northern Ireland Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme. You have only two years in which to file a claim, and although you can, in theory download a form and complete it yourself, it would be advisable to have an experienced criminal injuries solicitor to help, rather than expert injury solicitors in Peterculter, as the process can be both lengthy and complicated.
