Risk is a fact of life, and unfortunately, accidents can and do occur. Those that stem from acts of negligence are often subject to personal injury compensation. Whilst compensation will in no way make up for the injuries you have sustained, it could help you to make your life more comfortable.
Common types of accidents in Peeblesshire
You can claim compensation for a wide range of accidents, so if you have suffered a personal injury through no fault of your own, it is worth finding out whether you are eligible to make a claim. If you have sustained an injury as a result of any of the following accidents, you should call our Freephone helpline and let one of our trained claims advisors determine whether your case is worth pursuing:
- Road traffic accidents
- Slip, trip and falls in public places
- Accidents in the workplace
- Accidents on holiday
- Sports accidents
We will be able to analyse the details of your accident and offer expert advice on your legal rights.
An accident lawyer in Peeblesshire will guide you through the claims process
Once our trained claims advisors have established that you have a legal right to receive compensation, they will pass your details on to one of our specialist personal injury lawyers. If your lawyer is satisfied that your claim has a reasonable chance of success, he will offer to work for you on a 100% no win, no fee basis.
Your lawyer in Peeblesshire will draft a formal Letter of Claim, which will inform the responsible party of your intention to claim compensation, and draw up a Schedule of Losses, which will detail all the expenses you wish to include in your claim. He will then send these documents to the responsible party.
If the responsible party admits liability, your accident lawyer in Peeblesshire will enter into negotiations with the aim of securing an appropriate level of compensation. If both parties agree to a settlement figure, you will receive your compensation in a timely manner. If the responsible party denies liability, your lawyer may need to take your claim to court. If you win your claim, a judge will decide on the amount of compensation you should receive from the responsible party.
Whether your case is settled in court or outside of court, your accident lawyer will ensure that your compensation settlement reflects the pain, suffering and financial losses you have encountered as a result of your accident in Peeblesshire.
