For most innocent victims of Kilmarnock road traffic accidents, it will be the first time they have made a personal injury claim, and there are many questions they ask. Some of these are similar for most new claimants, and here we provide answers to some of the more common ones.
Who can make personal injury claims for Kilmarnock road traffic accidents ?
Anyone that has been injured in an accident that was not their own fault can make a compensation claim, as long as their injuries needed medical attention and the accident happened no more than three years ago.
Other than Kilmarnock road traffic accidents, are there other accidents that can be claimed for?
All accidents, if they fit the rules, come within the realms of personal injury claims, not just Kilmarnock road traffic accidents. It could be:
- Accidents at work
- Holiday accidents
- Slip, trips and falls
- Food poisoning
- Pedestrian accidents
- Animal attacks
- Industrial conditions
Some of these accidents can have a lifelong effect of the victim and those close to them, and that needs accounting for when they make personal injury claims.
Does it matter what your injuries were?
The injuries sustained in accidents vary greatly in type and severity, and unfortunately some victims do not survive the accident. On average, 5 people a day lose their lives on our road, and although that is still too many, it is better than in the 1980’s when the average was 15 lives lost each day.
Just like accidents, if your injuries fit the rules, you can make a personal injury claim.
How much will this cost you?
You do not have to pay any money to start your claim, or legal fees if your claim is lost. We work on the no-win, no-fee* agreement, and that takes care of the financing of your claim.
