Hiring a lawyer in Pathhead following a road traffic accident
Pathhead may be a small village but unfortunately there are still a number of road traffic accidents each year which result in personal injuries. Victims of road traffic accidents which aren’t their fault can suffer greatly as a result of personal injuries which may require costly treatment, an extended period of time off work as well as having an effect on everyday activities such as caring for children or relatives, housework, shopping, driving and more. In these cases, victims may be entitled to compensation. We tell you what you need to know about hiring a lawyer in Pathhead below.
Am I eligible?
Whether or not a person is eligible to make a compensation claim for a personal injury depends on a number of factors, including:
- If the accident took place within the last three years
- If the accident was someone else’s fault
- The severity of the injury
- Time and money lost as a result of not being able to work
- Treatment costs
