Dunkeld is a wonderfully picturesque rural village in the heart of Scotland. Its history dates right back to the middle ages, where there was no doubt plenty of opportunities for people to suffer personal injuries in their day to day lives. Sadly, there would not have been such a thing as a personal injury solicitor in Dunkeld in those days, so people would just have had to put up with things. But in today’s fairer and more enlightened times, you no longer need to simply suffer in silence if you suffer a personal injury because of an accident that wasn’t your fault. These days, organisations such as Accident Advice Helpline are here to help people just like you seek justice, and claim compensation, in such situations.
Types of claim a personal injury solicitor in Dunkeld can handle
There are a wide variety of different personal injury claims that a solicitor can help with. As long as the accident or incident occurred in the last three years, and it wasn’t your fault, then you may well have a case to make a claim. Some specific examples of the types of claims we can help with are listed below:
Road traffic accident claims
No matter how careful you are being on the roads, you sadly can’t always account for the other drivers on the road. There may come a time when you are involved in a road traffic accident that was by no means your fault; somebody might drive into the back of you at a junction, for example. If this happens, you may suffer a personal injury such as whiplash – which is the most common injury of this kind.
Injuries in the workplace
Whether it’s repetitive strain injury, vibration white finger or you tripped over and hurt yourself because your employer didn’t follow health and safety precautions properly, Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help.
Slips trips and falls
If you have been walking in your local town and tripped over some uneven paving, then you may be able to make a claim for compensation. But remember: the incident must have happened in the last three years, and you can only claim if you required medical attention afterwards.
