Road Traffic Accidents
If you have been injured in a car crash or other type of road traffic accident anywhere in Scotland within the last three years that was not your fault, we can help you claim the compensation to which you are entitled.
We recommend that you get in touch with us as soon as possible to discuss your claim while the details of the accident are still fresh in your mind.
Don’t be taken in by insurers who wish to settle your claim with you direct
At such a difficult and stressful time you need expert, independent legal advice.
We find this happening frequently: people who are at their most vulnerable getting calls from insurance companies and then their “panel” solicitors or, worse, just letters offering derisory settlements.
Well, settling the claim quickly is invariably cheaper for an insurer and they know that without expert legal advice you are unlikely to be paid the full value of your claim arising from a road traffic accident.
You are free to choose the solicitors you want to deal with your claim
If you have reported the accident to your own motor insurance company, remember that you do not have to use the lawyers the insurance company tries to divert you to for your claim.
This is the case even if you have legal expenses cover.
Common misconceptions about what might prevent you claiming successfully
Please be aware that you can make a claim even if the person at fault for the accident was a relative of yours – though, understandably, some people choose not to claim in that type of situation.
Also note that failure to wear a seat-belt is unlikely to prevent you having a claim arising from a road traffic accident, though it may reduce the level of compensation to which you are entitled.
