Think of Perth and you might think of the location of the same name in Australia. However, there is another Perth that is far closer to home than that. It is in Scotland, taking up quite a central position in the country. It sits within the area known as Perth and Kinross, and the River Tay runs straight through the city of some 47,000 residents. While Perth personal injury claims are very rare, there are always going to be some isolated situations that lead to such claims being made.
No one ever expects to be in an accident regardless of the day they have planned. But in reality, accidents can happen almost anywhere. Any work location could be the scene of an accident, and other public places including shops and facilities including sports centres might also potentially be places where someone suffers an injury.
What is a no win, no fee claim?
Often you will hear of this kind of claim being made against a third party. It relates to a claim that stems from something that happened to one person because of the actions of the third party. This could mean one of two things – either the third party took actions that directly led to that person being hurt, or they didn’t do something that resulted in the same outcome.
In the latter example, failing to remove a hazard or failing to repair something that later leads to an accident would be typical examples of how this might happen. Once you have this straight in your mind, you can probably start to see how Perth personal injury claims might be made, as well as those occurring anywhere else in Scotland or the rest of the UK.
Finding out whether you are able to make a claim
The most important thing will be to ensure you have a chance to claim if you have been injured in a manner that was caused through negligence. This is not easy to work out in all cases, even though other situations make it very obvious who was to blame.
