    Injured in Duns


    Have you been injured in Duns, and feel uncertain whether you can make a claim or not? Then don’t worry, Accident Advice Helpline have a high quality team of professionals who can help you out. However, before you contact us, why not take a few minutes to decide for yourself whether or not you should be making a claim.

    The risks of making a claim can be substantial if you choose the wrong person. There are plenty of unscrupulous people out there who will happily take your money and go ahead even though there is little chance of success.

    After all, it doesn’t matter to them, they get paid one way or another.
    So, before you start follow this quick Q&A to see whether you can claim.

    When did the accident happen?

    Time is important with personal injury claims. Under regulations you can only make a claim for accidents that happened within the last three years. It may not sound fair but if the claim took place beyond that time then you will not be able to even make a claim – regardless of the rights or wrongs of your case.

    Was it your fault?

    As long as you can answer no to this question your claim should have legs. If you’ve been injured in Duns in an accident and it wasn’t your fault then it stands to reason that you deserve compensation for the effect it has on your life.

    How much can I receive after being injured in Duns?

    This is a difficult question to answer, as every case is different and the nuances of personal injury law are so complex. Different types of injuries carry different levels of compensation. For example a more serious injury which results in long term disabilities or other impairments will naturally carry a larger sum than something more short term.

    Compensation is calculated on the basis of a payment for the injury and any expenses incurred – these could be anything from travel to medical bills and any changes you’ve had to make to your car or home to adapt to a disability.

    As such it is possible to provide an estimation of how much you might receive for any case. This cannot guarantee the sum, but does give you something to bear in mind. This could be useful should the opposition get in touch and offer a settlement sum.

    How much will it cost?

    Again this varies depending on the lawyer you work with. Some will work on a no win, no fee* basis, while others will demand a fee upfront. Some will also take a larger proportion of the compensation sum than others. As with any service it’s important to shop around.
