Making an injury claim in Erskine
Situated in Renfrewshire, Erskine is a fairly small area with a population of just 15,000 people. Despite being smaller than many nearby towns and cities, accidents can happen in Erskine just as easily as anywhere else in the country.
Unfortunately, this means that people can sustain unexpected injuries at any time. Although you might be familiar with the area if you live locally, this doesn’t mean that you won’t get hurt or suffer harm of some kind.
If you’ve been hurt whilst in the area, you may be considering the possibility of making an injury claim in Erskine. Whilst many people take legal action because they want to obtain compensation for their injuries, the desire to seek justice also motivates people to make a personal injury claim.
Who caused your injuries?
In order to make an injury claim in Erskine, you’ll need to show that you weren’t responsible for your injuries. If you were hurt at work, for example, you and your personal injury solicitor will need to prove that you employer was responsible for the incident, if you want to make a claim against them.
Similarly, you’ll also need to have received some kind of medical treatment for your injuries before you’ll be considered eligible to make a claim. If your medical records indicate that you were treated for injuries which weren’t your fault, you should be able to pursue an injury claim in Erskine.
How much compensation could you receive?
Often, people assume that it won’t be worth making a claim before they even seek legal advice. Sadly, this can lead to them missing out on a considerable amount of compensation. Even if you haven’t sustained particularly serious injuries, you may be surprised at how much compensation you could be awarded.
