Have you been hurt because of a friend?
When an injury occurs, it can be bad enough if it’s a stranger who has inadvertently caused you harm but if the fault lies with a family member or a friend, it may make matters even worse. Although they may not have intended to hurt you at all, if they have caused you to suffer an injury, the chances are that they will feel guilty about the pain and suffering that they’ve put you through.
Whilst most people can accept that accidents happen on occasion, you may still need to make a claim for compensation. Whilst making a compensation claim against a friend may seem difficult, it’s necessary to go through this legal mechanism in order to obtain the compensation you deserve.
In many cases, the compensation you receive, if you make a successful claim with a specialist injury solicitor of Peeblesshire, will be from a person’s insurer, rather than out of their own pocket, which may make you feel more comfortable about making a claim against someone you know.
If, for example, your neighbour’s property is damaged and you’re struck by falling debris, it’s likely that they will have some form of insurance which could cover your compensation, if you make a claim.
