Personal Injury Compensation Claims Lawyers Glasgow, Scotland

The law in Scotland protects us if another person or organisation’s negligence causes us to suffer harm. Whether you were injured in an accident at work, in a public place or a road traffic accident, if your injury was not your fault, then you are entitled to claim compensation for the suffering and loss you have had to endure as a result. The highly experienced personal injury solicitors at Jones Whyte Law are ready to assist you with your claim.

Once you have made the brave decision to pursue a claim to obtain compensation for an injury caused by someone else, the expert solicitors at Jones Whyte can take care of the rest. When you make a personal injury claim, whether or not you get the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to often hinges on the quality and strength of evidence, as well as how skilfully negotiations with the other party’s insurers are carried out. This is where our specialist personal injury lawyers can help.

At Jones Whyte, our solicitors are experts at obtaining evidence useful to your case, and ensuring that the law is on your side. We pride ourselves on our negotiation skills and will only act in your best interests, ensuring that your financial concerns are taken care of and that we achieve the maximum possible settlement in the minimum amount of time.

Personal Injury Compensation Claims

Making a personal injury claim involves building a strong case, following a set procedure and adhering to tight deadlines. For instance, you might not be aware that you have three years from the date of the accident in which you were injured, or when you became aware of the injury, in which to bring a claim.

Importantly, you must satisfy three key criteria:

  1. that the person or organisation you hold responsible for your injury owed you a duty of care, i.e. they had a legal responsibility not to cause you to suffer harm;
  2. that the person or organisation did not observe the duty of care they owed you; and
  3. that the person or organisation’s failure to observe the duty of care caused you to suffer injury.

These criteria must be established by clear evidence, such as photos, witness statements and medical reports. If the evidence is strong, then the person or organisation liable for your injury may offer to settle the claim out of court. If so, it is vital to ensure they offer a fair amount of compensation that mirrors what you are legally entitled to (including for pain and suffering, loss of earnings and any damage done to your property).

If the other party does not accept liability, then depending on our view as to your prospects of success, we may advise that you take the matter before a court. The court will decide whether the claim meets the legal requirements and, if so, how much compensation should be awarded.

If you are unsure about the process of making a personal injury claim in Scotland, please get in touch. Our specialist personal injury solicitors will guide you through everything, from how a personal injury compensation claim is made to the current personal injury compensation rates.

Types of Personal Injury Claims in Scotland

 We understand that it can be daunting to contemplate taking legal action, especially where the other party is your employer, a hospital or local authority. However, it is important to remember that if a person or organisation has acted negligently and you have been injured as a result, you have a right under the law in Scotland to be compensated for the impact this incident has had on your life. We are here to ensure our clients are rightfully compensated.
