If you’re looking for an expert lawyer on the Isle of Islay following an accident that wasn’t your fault, contact Accident Advice Helpline. With over 15 years’ experience of helping people to make successful personal injury claims, we offer free no-obligation advice and no upfront cost to start your claim.
Following an accident, you’ve probably had to go through a period of physical recovery and possible some emotional healing too. If you were left out of pocket due to loss of earnings from taking time off work, for example, you’ve probably thought about looking for an expert lawyer on the Isle of Islay to help you make a claim for compensation. However, you might be wondering what such a claim entails.
Firstly, there is usually a three-year deadline from the accident (or from the point at which you first realised your injuries were caused by the accident) to start a claim. While there are some exceptions to this, it’s important you contact an expert lawyer on the Isle of Islay as soon as possible to see about starting your claim.
The accident must have been caused by someone else’s negligence, recklessness or criminal behaviour. You must also have seen a medical professional for your injuries. Government legislation entitles you to seek compensation for the pain and suffering you’ve experienced and to recover some or all of the costs you’ve incurred as a direct result of your accident.

It’s important that you work with your lawyer to provide as much evidence as you can to back up your case.
