Have you ever heard of Penicuik? You may live there or work there, of course, but you might also know it very well if you have ever passed through it. It is a town of around 15,000 residents in Midlothian in Scotland, which is towards the southern end of the country. Few people would have reason to consider making a Penicuik no win, no fee case, but if you have sustained injuries in an accident within the last three years, you may have wondered whether you could claim.
Every case is different, of course, but if a no win, no fee claim is to go ahead, you must know whether the other party involved in the accident was negligent. Proof of negligence must be brought forward as part of the case if you are to be successful in getting some compensation.
How can you prove negligence?
When an accident of any kind occurs, no matter where it is or what happens, it is important to look at what happened and how it happened. There may be witnesses to what happened, and you may have your own memories of the occurrence and of how it came to happen.
This could relate to a working environment, a situation on the roads or in a car park, or even involve a visit to the gym or to a similar public place. You should get as much information about your accident as possible, because this will help support a claim if you do decide you should make one.
