    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Solicitor in Kirkcudbright


    A wise man once said there are always three versions of any story – yours, mine and the truth. When the courts are assessing any disputed claim it is their job to assess what they think the truth is. Here we’ll show you how to present the most compelling case possible and how your chances of success could hinge on your choice of a solicitor in Kirkcudbright.

    Starting your claim

    So let’s begin at the beginning and look at your situation as you first start to think about whether or not it’s a good idea to make a claim. You have been hurt in an accident which you believe was not your fault. You’ve required medical attention and you need the money that compensation could bring to help you get back on your feet.

    But there’s a problem. The other side is disputing the issue and look set to fight this the whole way. This is not the kind of thing that often happens – indeed most of the cases we deal with never get as far as court, but if this happens, it’s important to know the details of the case.

    Evidence

    When the courts come to decide the case they will have to make their decision based on which argument they find the most compelling and the only way they can do that is by looking at the evidence presented before them.

    If you’re confident of your case then you will naturally want to have as much evidence presented in court as possible.

    Things such as witness statements, photos of the scene, or expert testimony could all prove important in making your case. For example, if you’re involved in a car accident it helps to get the contact details of anyone present including the names and numbers of any police officers. However, this might admittedly not be the first thing on your mind if you’ve just been in a car crash.

    If you do get hold of this information you shouldn’t contact these people yourself, but pass their details on to your legal team. They will do the contacting for you.

    Finding a solicitor in Kirkcudbright

    Your choice of lawyer will also be important. You should find a solicitor in Kirkcudbright who has the right experience. So, if you’ve been in this car accident, you naturally need to find someone who is an expert in road traffic accidents. Most lawyers will specialise in one or more area of personal injury law and will state this clearly on their website.

    However, when you go in for a disputed claim there is no way to be certain what will happen which is why it’s a relief to know that whatever happens when you use us, we’ll make sure it all happens on a no-win, no-fee basis. That means that no matter what happens you only pay if you win. Every solicitor in Kirkcudbright and across the country we work in partnership with works on this basis – guaranteed.

    So, to find out more about finding a solicitor in Kirkcudbright give us a call on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone. Whichever way you decide to get in touch we’re here to help.
