The village of Insch in Aberdeenshire, Scotland lies 28 miles from the centre of Aberdeen. With its own 18-hole golf course and train station, there are plenty of reasons to live here, but most people commute to work in the city itself. If you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident or an accident whilst using public transport, you could find yourself in need of injury lawyers in Insch. You’re not tied to using a local lawyer to make a personal injury claim though – Accident Advice Helpline covers the whole of the UK, so you could get in touch with us if you think you may have a viable claim, and we’ll be able to help you.
Why not just use injury lawyers in Insch?
Finding specialist injury lawyers in Insch might be tricky. You want to ensure that you hire a specialist with experience in personal injury law, and ideally, in the type of accident and/or injury you are claiming for. You also want to look for lawyers working on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis, like Accident Advice Helpline. Our lawyers don’t charge any upfront fees and any fees will be deducted from your settlement if your claim is successful. This means that anybody can afford to make a claim with us, regardless of their circumstances. You’ll also find you’re able to ring us at any time for confidential, no-obligation advice, which means you won’t feel pressured into making a claim but can ensure you’re informed about the claims process.
Are you eligible for loss of earnings compensation?
If you’ve needed to take time off work after your accident then you could find you’re eligible to claim compensation for loss of earnings. Whilst you could just claim statutory sick pay if you’re off work, not everybody is eligible for this (for example, self-employed people) and it’s only a small percentage of your usual wages. This means you and your family could be in financial difficulties after your accident, which is why we could help you claim compensation for loss of earnings. This is particularly relevant if you have sustained serious injuries and need to take months off work, or if you have been left disabled after your accident and will be unable to return to work at all.
What happens after your accident?
If you think somebody else was to blame for your accident then the first thing to do is to get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline. We’re able to offer advice, tell you if you have a viable claim or not and answer any questions you have about the claims process. If you decide to proceed with a claim then we’ll get to work gathering evidence to support your claim – most claims can be processed over the phone, so going to court is unlikely. The first thing you should do is to get in touch with us by calling our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 or give us a call on 0333 500 0993 from your mobile (charges may apply).
