    Personal injury lawyer in Bathgate


    If you’re looking for a personal injury lawyer and feeling a little overwhelmed about the whole prospect then don’t worry because help is at hand.

    Looking for a personal injury lawyer in Bathgate?

    There are times looking at the current landscape of personal injury law that you can’t help but think that the odds are stacked up against the claimant.

    First the government removed legal aid from anyone seeking to make a personal injury claim and secondly, over a period of years the Citizens’ Advice Bureau began to reduce the amount of advice and assistance they gave to people who were looking to make a claim.

    When it comes to the case, the onus of proof is on you as the claimant to demonstrate that the accident was the defendant’s fault. It’s not enough to have a very good case, you’ve got to possess such an overwhelming weight of evidence in your favour that the courts can’t help but find for you.

    Couple that with the fact that you might well find yourself going up against a large and well funded organisation and you can see the size of the struggle that lies ahead. Many large corporations take the view that their own size and financial resources can protect them against any claims. All they have to do is to keep fighting and throwing money at a claim until you run out of resources.

    We do not have a personal injury lawyer in Bathgate working directly for us but this doesn’t matter, we can still help you claim as we are a national injury law firm that covers all areas of the UK. So if you need a personal injury lawyer in Bathgate or anyway make us your first point of call.

    Fighting fit

    That’s why it’s important to ensure you’re in the best possible position to make a claim from the outset and that begins with making sure that you have the facts on your side. One of the first things people ask us when they call our helpline is ‘do I have a good case’ and that’s what we’ll look to decide.

    We’ll put ourselves in the position of the court and look at the extent of your injuries and try to reach a decision about what we think happened. We’ll decide firstly whether we think you are in the right, but most importantly whether we think the evidence proves it. Only then will we be certain about whether the odds are in your favour or not when it comes to court.

    If we think you have a realistic chance of winning then we will help you find a personal injury lawyer who can help with your claim. This is useful for three reasons – first we have lawyers with skills to cover any type of case and as a large national company ourselves we have the resources to mount a successful fight against any of the big boys, which can be reassuring in itself. Most importantly, our no win no fee guarantee means that whatever happens you’ll only have to pay up if you win your case.

    So, to find out more about how we can help you, call us on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
