    Solicitors in Castle Douglas


    If you need solicitors in Castle Douglas to make a claim following an accident that wasn’t your fault, contact Accident Advice Helpline today.

    Although the area surrounding the market town of Castle Douglas in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, has been inhabited for thousands of years, the town itself was built in the 18th century by one, William Douglas, a member of the Douglas clan. Nearby Threave Castle is situated on an island in the River Dee, and it was this that was the seat of the ‘Black’ Douglas clan who were the Earls of Douglas. The town of Castle Douglas was built on the shores of Carlingwark Loch. The town had a cotton-weaving industry in the past, but this fell into decline, but now Castle Douglas is a designated Food Town.

    Solicitors in Castle Douglas

    There are a variety of cafés, restaurants and food shops in Castle Douglas, but there may not be a firm of solicitors in Castle Douglas based if you need one. You may need to find a specialist personal injury solicitor if you have had an accident in the area, but what can you do if there isn’t one in a firm of solicitors in Castle Douglas? The answer is easy, call us at Accident Advice Helpline and we will probably be able to put you in touch with one of our team of expert personal injury solicitors.

    You may need personal injury solicitors in Castle Douglas if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault. You would need the assistance of an expert solicitor to build a case to prove that you were not to blame for the accident if the claim were to be successful.

    Another reason for filing a personal injury compensation claim is that you have an illness, or had one, that you can prove was contracted as a result of another person’s negligence.

    How long do I have to file a claim?

    You have three years to file a claim for an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence, although the sooner you file the claim the better as if it is contested it will have to go through the court system, and this could take years rather than months.

    If the accident in which you sustained your injuries happened in the UK, you also usually have three years to file your claim, but there are shorter limitation periods for some accidents, so you really should find out now how long you have to file your particular claim. Contact a local firm of solicitors, or call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
