Most people will have heard of East Lothian. It is in Scotland and rather than being a county it is actually a government area – one of 32 in the country. It is located in the south of the country, on the coast, and is very close to Edinburgh. Personal injury claims in East Lothian are certainly not unheard of, although they do tend to be few and far between. Most people don’t have any reason to worry about such claims at any point.
However, accidents can happen at any moment, and while most of us go through each day unscathed, it is wise to know what you can do if you should be involved in one. It may not be down to anything you did – you may be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Do you have a right to claim if someone else was at fault?
The simple answer is yes. It may seem strange to consider claiming compensation, but in reality you do have a legal right to make such a claim. After all, the accident may have left you nursing injuries that had an effect on your life in some way. You may have suffered nasty injuries that meant you couldn’t work or take your children to school. You may have been left financially poorer because you couldn’t earn as you normally would.
If something like this has happened to you, keep all documentation you have that might relate to your claim. For example, if you have receipts from travel expenses to go to the doctor or hospital for medical treatment in relation to your injuries, keep them. They will be taken into account if you do make a no win, no fee claim.
