Britain’s roads, although safe compared with those in many other countries – and much improved during the past few decades – are still places where accidents can, and do, happen.
Every year, many people end up in road traffic accidents in Dunfermline that might not have happened, if only the other driver had been paying attention or not done something reckless.
If you’re the victim of such an accident, the aftermath can be confusing, painful and, for many, a financial nightmare. But if you qualify to claim, you could receive a payout – so why not read on to find out how?
A bit about eligibility
You should be eligible to claim compensation if you were in an accident that was caused by the other driver. But you might not be sure whether you qualify – nothing is ever completely straightforward in these situations, after all.
However, you can check your eligibility quickly and easily by taking Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test, which is on our website. You just need to input a few details about the accident, and you will get your answer.
How much could you receive for road traffic accidents in Dunfermline?
We can’t tell you exactly what you’ll be awarded if you win your case, but we can give you an estimate – or rather, you can get it yourself. Again, you can do this on our website. The figure you get may not be exactly what you receive later on, but at least you have an idea of what to expect.

How you can help yourself
It’s a great idea to start a file for everything to do with your claim. Into this file, you can put your records of medical treatment, as well as receipts for any expenses that you have incurred (such as a home help or a childminder).
