    Hiring a lawyer in Penicuik for road accident compensation

    Located near Edinburgh, Penicuik (pronounced Pennycook) is a fantastic Scottish town which was once known for its paper mills. These days its residents work in a number of different industries. Like other areas of the UK, Penicuik residents may find themselves in a car or road accident which could lead to personal injuries. In these instances it may be necessary to contact a lawyer in Penicuik in order to claim for compensation. We guide you through the process below.

    About car accidents and personal injuries

    Those involved in car accidents may suffer both minor and more serious injuries, which can result in stays in hospital, absence from work, costly recovery fees as well as have an effect on day-to-day activities such as caring for loved ones or even going to the shops. If the accident was caused by someone else, it may be possible that you could claim compensation for any injuries sustained and for any costs which have been incurred through loss of earnings or treatment costs. For this you will need to consult with an experienced lawyer in Penicuik, such as Accident Advice Helpline.

    How to work out if you’re eligible to make a claim

    There are a number of factors which will determine whether or not you are eligible for compensation, including whether or not the accident occurred in the last three years and that the blame lies with another party. There are exceptions for those who were minors at the time of the accident, but this will need to be looked at on an individual basis.

    To determine your eligibility, you can contact the team via the 24-hour advice line or even use the website’s 30-second test feature which will determine your eligibility.

    What happens next?

    If you are deemed eligible, you can choose whether or not to proceed with your claim – there is no obligation for you to do so with AAH. Your case will be handled by experienced lawyers who deal solely with personal injury claims. Most claims will be processed over the phone and you may not have to go to court. Should you lose your case, you won’t have to pay a penny as AAH offers a 100% no win, no fee policy.
