Crawford is a village in South Lanarkshire, Scotland, and with a population of around 300 people, it would be unlikely to find solicitors in Crawford. If you need any help, information, or advice about filing a potential personal injury compensation claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
Finding suitable solicitors in Crawford or elsewhere
If you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was absolutely not your fault, you might be looking for a firm of solicitors in Crawford, for example. They could help you build a case to prove categorically that the accident was the responsibility of another person. However, as there are many types of accident, you need to locate a personal injury solicitor who has the expertise and experience in dealing with the type of injuries and accident that you have had. For example, if you had an accident at work, you would need a solicitor who specialises in such accidents to take up your claim.
After an accident, you might not feel well enough to search for an appropriate solicitor to work for you on a no-win, no fee basis, but if you call us at Accident Advice Helpline, we could probably put you in touch with one of our team of expert personal injury solicitors. You can explain the details of your accident and he or she will be able to tell you if you have good grounds on which to base a claim. This can usually be done over the phone.
If you choose to find your own solicitor, you should ask to have a first appointment free of charge in order to find out if you are eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Claiming for an illness
You may need a firm of solicitors in Crawford, for example, if you have an illness which can be proven to have been the result of another person’s negligence, such as food poisoning or a work-related illness. You would need your medical records and the doctor’s prognosis to make a claim.
You have three years from the date of first being diagnosed with the illness caused by another person’s negligence to file a claim against the person you believe to have been responsible for it. For example this might be your employer, in the case of a work-related illness, or the restaurant owner, in the case of food poisoning.
