Are you seeking advice from injury lawyers in Lockerbie? As a victim of an accident that was not your fault, you could be looking for advice on making a claim for compensation. Before you proceed, you need to know certain key facts, for example:
- Is my claim eligible?
- Can I prove my case?
These two questions can be tackled easily. To check your claim qualifies, simply take the 30-second test here. Did you answer ‘yes’ to all three questions? You could be eligible to claim. To find out how if you can prove your case, ask our trained and knowledgeable advisors.
How long do I have to claim?
You have three years in which to lodge a claim, or two years in the case of accidents at sea or by air. We advise you not to leave your claim until the last minute, because your solicitor needs time to prepare your case. He or she must collect evidence, talk to witnesses and prepare statements.
How long does it take to settle a case?
It depends on the complexity of it, of course. It also depends on how quickly the claimant and the defendant agree. Most cases these days are started online, and in our case, once you have checked and signed your documents, we will handle the detail for you. Most cases do not go to court, and should that seem likely, your solicitor would discuss it with you. The final decision rests with you.
