In the old days, if you were involved in an accident then more than likely this would result in your death. This was because there wasn’t the medical attention that we now have, nor the transport to get the victim to the medical practitioners. Bleeding to death was not uncommon, and if the victim did survive then they could be maimed for life.
As for making a compensation claim, that was not possible — the concept was not around. It was just hard luck for the victim and their family – they just had to manage in the best way that they could.
The solicitors in Edzell that we work with at Accident Advice Helpline have the experience to help victims of accidents that were not their fault, and nowadays the law states that in this situation the guilty party should pay the victim compensation for the suffering they have caused.
