Bus, Van, Truck and Lorry Accidents Lawyers Glasgow, Scotland

It takes a lot of training and experience to be able to properly navigate a large lorry or truck through Scotland’s streets. Drivers of these large vehicles are extensively trained but, unfortunately, even the most skilled drivers can be involved in an accident with another road user. At Jones Whyte Law, our injury lawyers understand the extent of the impact an accident like this can have on your physical and emotional well being, as well as the financial and other losses you may experience as a result. We provide a professional and compassionate service, and are dedicated to getting you the right amount of compensation.

Where you have been injured in an accident while driving a bus, van, truck or lorry, contact the solicitors at Jones Whyte today for support and legal advice.

Why Claim Compensation for a Bus, Van, Truck and Lorry Accident?

An accident like this can cause significant changes in your life. Perhaps you have to make various trips to hospital, undergo surgery and make adjustments to your home. You may also need to take time off work and arrange for childcare, and you may no longer be able to carry out hobbies you enjoyed before the accident. A compensation award is not just based on the severity of your injury, but also the wider impact it has had on your life and the lives of those around you, which have also changed.

Where someone else’s avoidable mistake has resulted in injury to you, it is only right that you are properly compensated for the impact that this has on you physically, emotionally and financially. At Jones Whyte, we are proud of our excellent track record in achieving the highest possible amount for our clients. This comes down to our meticulous preparation of claims and tenacious approach to getting you the result you deserve.

The claims process can also help you to understand how the accident happened, and together with the fair amount of compensation, this can allow you to move on from the accident and concentrate on improving your quality of life.

The Claims Process for Bus, Van, Truck and Lorry Accidents

We operate an open door policy, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you want to discuss an accident you were involved in. Once you get in touch and tell us about what happened, we will get back to you without delay to let you know if you have a valid claim, and set out your options for what to do next.

If you have a valid claim, and you decide to proceed, we will contact the insurance company of the person or organisation you hold responsible, and set out the details of your claim. We will gather together the key evidence in your case, including information and pictures from the scene, pictures and medical records relating to your injury, as well as receipts for expenses. We may arrange for an independent medical practitioner to assess your injuries where we believe this is important to your case.

We will value your claim and present this to the other party’s insurance company. If liability is accepted, we will use our expert negotiation skills to get you the best possible settlement offer. Indeed, if your claim is worth less than £25,000 then we are obliged to try and settle the case out of court. Where we do not believe the offer is fair, or where the other party does not accept that they were at fault, your case may be best handled by a court. Here, we will provide skilled representation and continue our aim to get you a fair outcome. 

Personal Injury Claims in Court

While it is always preferable to settle out of court, in some cases this will not be possible. If your claim proceeds to court, your lawyers will need to establish that the party you hold liable owed you a duty of care, they breached this duty of care due to their negligent actions and, as a consequence you were injured. The criteria for personal injury claims are strictly applied and highly complex. These cases are, therefore, best handled by reputable personal injury lawyers, preferably those with specific experience of handling bus, van, truck and lorry accident claims. 

Of course, acting quickly is important. With personal injury claims of this nature, the time limit is generally three years. With that in mind, you should contact us as soon as possible after you are involved in an accident.
