Lawyer in Glasgow


Everyone goes through life hoping that they will never need the services of a lawyer. It seems, however, that no one gets through the rigours of modern day life without their assistance. With divorce rates constantly rising, crimes far too frequent on our streets and the pace of modern life causing more and more accidents, the services of a lawyer are being called upon more and more often. So what types of lawyer are there?

Lawyer in Glasgow

There are officially four types of lawyer: solicitors, barristers, legal executives and paralegals. All of these will be found working in a  law firm with a number of associates and administrative assistants. The law firm may practice general law, or it may decide to specialise. There are many different types of lawyer in Glasgow, including those who specialise purely in personal injury compensation claims.

Choosing a lawyer in Glasgow

Nothing is better than recommendation. If a law firm has a string of excellent references, you cannot go far wrong. But make sure that they are the right type of firm for you. There are specialist firms that deal only with accident and injury claims, and as such stay firmly abreast of any changes to regulations, particularly to health and safety legislation. These firms will have extensive experience and will be able to make quick and accurate assessments for you.

Do you have a claim?

Before choosing a lawyer in Glasgow, it would be advisable to decide whether you actually have a claim to make. The current guidance states that a claim for compensation following an accident must be made within three years. There are exceptional situations, but these primarily belong to industrial disease cases.

The accident must not have been your fault – it must have arisen through circumstances beyond your control. Even the most experienced lawyer in Glasgow could not create a winning situation if you caused the accident through your own negligence.
