Ballantrae is a beautiful community in the South Ayrshire area of Scotland that is believed to take its name from the Scottish Gaelic Baile na Tràgha which translates as ‘town by the beach.’ The largely rural area was clearly important to famous author Robert Louis Stevenson who took inspiration from it to write the book the Master of Ballantrae, and for injury lawyers, Ballantrae is also important.
Injury Lawyers in Ballantrae?
You may well ask, in light of this, why for injury lawyers, Ballantrae is important, and the answer is very simple. For injury lawyers Ballantrae is important in the same way that each and every other village, town and city is important. What we mean by this is that good injury lawyers along with the legislation regarding compensation, view every claim regardless of where the source is, as equally important.
So, with this in mind, Ballantrae residents and everyone else besides may well find themselves in need of personal injury claim proceedings, and as such need to read on for the answers to some frequently asked questions about the claims process.
Why and When Could you Claim?
The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and it was demonstrably the fault of another party, be it an individual or an organisation, then you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. This compensation is offered as a means to hold the guilty party to account for their actions and more importantly in order to provide victims with some form of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial pain that they have suffered.
How Long do you Have to Claim?
In the majority of cases you have a period of three years from an accident or incident in which to begin claims proceedings before your ability to claim elapses. However, if your claim involves an injury you suffered as a minor or relates to an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning, then there is no time limit.

Arguably the most important question for potential claimants is that of who to trust with the handling of their claim, but fortunately you cannot do any better than putting your claim in the hands of Accident Advice Helpline.
