If you live in Glasgow and have suffered a personal injury then you could be seeking the advice of injury claim solicitors in Glasgow before making an injury claim. You may have had a cycling accident, for example, as you were emulating the British hopefuls who will be taking part in the British Cycling National Road Race Championships (NRRC) which will take place in Glasgow later in the year.
If that is the case, and your accident was no fault of your own, then you have grounds for making a personal injury claim. Perhaps a motorist ran into you while you were riding your bicycle in a designated cycle lane, or perhaps you fell because of an uneven road surface. In both these scenarios, you have grounds for a personal injury claim.
Injury claim solicitors in Glasgow
If you have suffered a personal injury then you could be trawling through the phone directory looking for injury claim in solicitors in Glasgow, or perhaps you have typed the phrase ‘injury claim solicitors in Glasgow’ into a search box to go through the top ten solicitors that the search engine comes up with. The problem is that, although there are injury claim solicitors in both these places, there is no way of you knowing if these solicitors have been successful in representing clients in personal injury claims.
What criteria are there for personal injury claims?
If you are thinking of making a personal injury claim, these are the points you need to keep in mind. You will need to give details to any solicitor who agrees to represent you.
1. You were not in any way responsible for the accident.
2. You sought medical treatment immediately after the accident and perhaps you have a police report as well as documentation from a doctor.
3. The accident occurred in the last three years.
If the accident happened in a public place or on private property (in your workplace, or a supermarket and so on), then it would help if you have the names and addresses of witnesses. You should also have reported the accident to the owner of their representative(s) at the time of the accident so that it has been recorded.
