Making Midlothian personal injury claims
If you have been injured as a result of an accident in the last three years, you may find yourself considering making a claim for compensation. Each year, hundreds of individuals make Midlothian personal injury claims as a result of accidents which were not their fault, and there is a good chance that you may be able to do so too.
For many people the thought of making Midlothian personal injury claims is quite daunting, but this is purely because they do not know where to start, or precisely what is involved in the process. If you are unsure of what to do or what is going to be expected of you, why not contact the Accident Advice Helpline to find out more? Alternatively, just keep reading as we have put together some information for you to explain the process.
Who can make a claim?
When it comes to Midlothian personal injury claims, anyone who has been injured in an accident that was not their fault, within the last three years, is eligible to apply.
If you were a minor at the time of the accident, or still are, then you will either have to appoint someone to act on your behalf if you want to make your claim now, or you can wait until you reach the age of 18 to claim in your own right. An Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will be able to help you decide what is likely to be the best course of action for you.
How to find out if you can make a claim
If you are concerned that you may not be able to make a claim for compensation, or unsure as to whether or not you meet the criteria, then you can find out for yourself quickly and easily. The Accident Advice Helpline have used their experience and expertise to design a 30 second test which you can take for yourself. By answering a couple of brief and easy questions regarding your accident, we will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not you could be entitled to make a claim.
If it turns out that you can make a claim based on the information you have provided, then we can also give you a good indication of what that claim might be worth to you in terms of financial compensation. For obvious reasons the information given at this stage is just a rough indication, and your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will be able to provide you with more details as your claim progresses.
