Getting legal help after an injury

Multicoloured squares and rectangles

Having your life disrupted by injury is bound to generate a lot of worries and questions.

The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) has published a downloadable booklet.

It centres on how, if you have suffered injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to claim compensation and get assistance with rehabilitation to promote your recovery.

The booklet answers some regularly-asked questions. You can download a copy of the booklet from this website or via the APIL website.

The booklet also discusses the benefits of getting advice from an APIL-accredited lawyer.

Many of the questions covered briefly in the booklet are ones which we have previously discussed on our Moray Claims website and we set out these questions below.

Each question is hyperlinked to a relevant article on the Moray Claims website.

Do I have a claim?

You may be unsure whether you have a claim for compensation or whether it’s realistic to claim.

What is negligence?

Negligence or breach of duty is an essential ingredient of most personal injury claims, so it’s important to have an understanding of the concept.

How much compensation will I receive?

You can also find out more about this in APIL’s Information Booklet: ‘Compensation Explained’ (links to explanatory page from which you can download PDF).

Will my case go to court?

Of course, you can approach this from either the standpoint of wishing to avoid going to court at all costs or from a position where you are very keen indeed to have your day in court.

How much will it cost?

It may cost you nothing at all, whether your claim succeeds or fails.

What is APIL? What is APIL Accreditation?

As mentioned above, APIL is the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, but there’s more information at the link in the heading above.

Why choose an APIL accredited lawyer?

As we have APIL-accredited solicitors at Grigor & Young, we have a vested interest here but there are plenty of good reasons for choosing a lawyer with the APIL seal of approval.
