    If you are involved in an accident and it was not your fault, this could be a very traumatic experience for you and also be a shock to your system. Legal compensation in recognition of your suffering is what UK law says you are entitled to, providing your injuries needed medical attention.

    You may well be searching for a personal injury lawyer in Kilmarnock to make an injury claim if you have sustained an injury in an accident that was not your fault. If your injury was because of a crime you need to make a criminal injuries compensation claim which a personal injury lawyer in Kilmarnock can also help you to do.

    There are criteria that you have to meet for a personal injury lawyer in Kilmarnock

    The criteria for an accident claim is:

    • The accident must have been the fault or negligence of someone else
    • The accident must have happened in the last three years
    • You must have needed medical attention for your injuries

    The criteria for a criminal injury claim are:

    • You must have helped the police with their enquires to give them the best possible chance of apprehending the criminal
    • You should be the blameless victim
    • The crime should have happened within the last two years (except in the case of child abuse where the rules are slightly different)
    • You must have reported the crime to the police

    If you fit this criteria and you make a claim, this is who will settle your claim

    The people who will pay would depend on who had caused the accident. Most of the time it will be the insurance companies, so a car accident would be motor insurance companies etc. But also it could be the local authority, government department, health trust and countless other organisations.  In the case of a criminal injury it would be the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA).
