What is Moray Claims?
Grigor & Young LLP trades as Moray Claims for personal injury compensation claim services.
We think it’s also beneficial to you to be able to deal with someone local to you.
You don’t have to pay us anything if your claim is unsuccessful, which is a commonly-found type of arrangement.
Where we think we differ from the norm is that we try not only to maximise the top line value of your claim but also reduce the amount and number of charges coming off the bottom; in other words, reducing the cost to you of our legal service in the event that your claim is successful.
Ideally, we do this in a way which means that our services end up being free of charge and you keep all your compensation.
This is quite a contrast from a typical no win-no fee arrangement, which will often mean you losing up to 20% of your compensation to pay costs.
If you wonder how that is possible, please see this article on our Moray Claims website.
The Moray Claims Blog has been running since 2012 and we have now published over 100 articles on personal-injury-related topics.

There are other options as well, but the bottom line is that you can’t embark on a no win-no fee claim without some sort of back-up insurance element to cover you in the event that things go wrong, you lose your case and you need some means of paying the costs of your opponent – which will almost certainly be awarded against you …
Whiplash injuries to the neck and spine are a common result of road traffic accidents, in particular, and this post explains how the injury element is valued, depending on the severity of the initial injury and the length of time the symptoms last.
Here, we get into some of the “hidden” costs alluded to in the preamble to this article.
Make sure you understand what costs you are going to have to pay – and how they will be calculated – before you commit yourself to proceeding with your claim through a particular claims company or firm of solicitors.
