    Injury claim lawyer in Helmsdale


    We know how intimidating it can be to find a personal injury solicitor. As well as location there is the whole issue of experience, skills and qualification. Make a mistake here and it can be an expensive process. So, if you’re looking for an injury claim lawyer in Helmsdale, what should you do?

    Back to basics

    The first thing to remember is to understand the fundamentals of your case. You will only be eligible for personal injury compensation if the accident occurred within the last three years. Equally you will have to establish the question of blame – for instance if the accident occurred as a result of your own carelessness then it is highly unlikely that you will be able to make a claim.

    If it happened as a result of someone else’s mistake then you may well be able to claim. However, you will still have to satisfy the court where the blame lies. That means being strong and clear in the presentation of your case at every stage.

    The nature and severity of the injury will also have a crucial impact on whether you can or cannot make a personal injury claim. If effects are short lasting and make no meaningful impact on your life then we may not be able to help you.

    If, on the other hand, your injury requires long lasting care and support, that could be a different issue entirely. Any compensation will be worked out on the basis of a payment for the injury itself and for any expenses incurred. These include the actual costs of addressing the injury such as travel or hospital bills and any loss of earnings.
