    Injury Claim Loch Ness


     

    You may live in Drumnadrochit close to Loch Ness, Scotland’s second largest and second deepest loch, and you may be contemplating making an injury claim in Loch Ness. You may have been injured in an accident which you can prove was the fault of another person and that you were in no way to blame. Generally you have three years from the date of your accident in which to file an injury claim in Loch Ness.

    You may also make an injury claim in Loch Ness if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by someone else’s negligence, and once again, you have three years in which to file an injury claim in Loch Ness or one from any other place in Britain.

    Exceptions to the three-year rule

    As with most things, there are exceptions to these general rules. If you have an accident at sea, in the air, or at most airports in the world, you have only two years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. This is because accidents such as these are governed by international conventions.

    You also only have two years to file an injury claim in Loch Ness or elsewhere if you have been injured in a crime. You can claim personal injury compensation for such an injury through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).

    Filing a claim with the CICA

    You can, generally apply for compensation from the CICA if you have been injured in an act of violence in England, Scotland or Wales. The person who caused you injuries does not have to have been charged or convicted of the crime in which you were injured.

    The minimum award paid out by the CICA is £1,000 so to apply for compensation, your injury must not be a very minor one. The maximum amount of compensation you can receive is £500,000.

    You can download a form from the CICA site and fill it in yourself, although it is generally advisable for you to hire the services of an injury lawyer to help you, because the form and process is complicated. Also if you want to appeal against any decision made by the CICA you will need the services of a personal injury lawyer who has experience of dealing with these claims.
