Sitting south of the Highlands, Inverness is one of the most stunning cities in the UK, let alone Scotland. There’s so much to see and do, and the roads leading there aren’t half bad either. But being a popular tourist destination means that traffic build up can be vast and this increases the risk of Inverness road traffic accidents exponentially. And when you factor in the normal accidents that every city experiences day-to-day, Inverness actually has a relatively high rate of road traffic accidents per capita.
If you have been involved in any Inverness road traffic accidents, then we hope that your injuries are not serious. But whether they are or not doesn’t change the fact that the law states that if you have been injured as a result of somebody else’s actions, then you are legally entitled to make a claim for financial compensation. And that’s where we come in.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we work in partnership with some of the most reputable solicitors in Scotland to provide our Scottish clients with an exceptional legal service. From the moment you call our claims advisors on 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993 for free, no obligation advice to the moment you get your cheque, you can always expect the highest level of compassion and professionalism from us.
How much financial compensation am I owed?
You can claim general damages and special damages for Inverness road traffic accidents. So for example, you might receive a pay out of £1,500 for your injury, and an additional £500 for loss of earnings, out-of-pocket expenses and any other financial disadvantages.
The more serious your injuries, the more you can expect in compensation. We’ve seen people with partial paralysis receive a pay-out in excess of £20,000, for example. In such cases, no amount of money is going to change the extent of their injuries, but it can at least allow the victim and their family to live financial stress free during their recovery period.
Special damages are actually easier to calculate. Your solicitor simply uses evidence to present a fair and proportionate pay-out for past expenses and to predict future financial burdens as a result of the accident. Sometimes, you don’t get a lump sum pay-out for this though – it is common to receive yearly compensation pay-outs in serious accident cases.
