Accidents and injuries

If you have been involved in an accident that you feel was the fault of another individual or organisation, you may be able to claim compensation under the law for the injuries and other losses (for example wage loss) you have suffered. This includes road traffic accidents, accidents at work and slips and trips.

We have far more expertise in personal injury law than you might expect for a small, rural firm of solicitors.

Our team has considerable experience in dealing with all types of accidents and injuries. Peter Brash is accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as a Specialist in Personal Injury Law.

Peter and his colleague, Marie Morrison, are members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and both are accredited by APIL as Senior Litigators.

Having two solicitors within one office with a recognised expertise in personal injury compensation claims makes Grigor & Young unique in Moray.  Between them, Peter and Marie have over 50 years’ personal injury experience.

The Elgin Office of Grigor & Young has Corporate Accreditation from APIL, a status which only a few solicitors’ offices in Scotland have achieved.

Moray Claims

There is a considerable amount of additional information on our separate Personal Injury Claims website, Moray Claims.

You can search the Moray Claims website from the right hand sidebar on all pages. Moray Claims has over 200 blog articles on different aspects of personal injury claims. The aim is to help people in Moray to claim fair and full compensation for personal injury – to enable you to move on with your life as quickly and as smoothly as possible. We also aim to do this in a way which costs you nothing – whether you win or lose your claim

The Moray Claims website also has a podcast about personal injury claim issues which are relevant to injury victims.

The problem with many personal injury claims is that you lose about 25% of your compensation if you’re successful. At Moray Claims at Grigor & Young we aim to provide local specialist advice in such a way that your personal injury claim costs you nothing whether you “win” or “lose”.

We are here to help

Our offices are closed but we are still open and here to help.


In accordance with Government guidelines, and to ensure the health and well-being of our
Staff and the wider community, our offices in Elgin and Forres are now closed to the public
until further notice.


However, we are still here to help you. We have a very small, core team remaining at each
office and the bulk of our legal and property teams are working remotely and are available to
assist you by way of telephone, video call or email.


Our main office number (01343 544077) is manned from 9am – 5pm, Monday to Thursday
and 9am – 4pm on Fridays. Please call and you will be passed to the member of our team
dealing with your business. If you are a new client requiring assistance, then you will be
passed to someone who will be able to help.


Those members of our team who are working remotely remain contactable on their direct
dial numbers and email. If the person who was dealing with your business is not currently
working then your call or email is being diverted to the person progressing matters for you.


This is a difficult time for everyone. We want to do all that we can to help you continue with
any ongoing business, or simply help and advise you if you have concerns. These are
extraordinary times and we totally understand that you may have legal questions or
concerns. Please feel free to call for a chat and we will do all we can to assist.


If we all take good care of ourselves, our families, our friends and our neighbours, we are
sure that together we will come through this difficult time.
