Do I Qualify For Compensation?
Our potential clients are often keen to know whether or not they qualify to claim compensation for the injuries or illness that they have suffered. To claim personal injury compensation, your lawyers will have to prove the following:
- That the Defendant owed you, the Claimant, a duty of care. Legally, certain parties have a what is called a duty of care towards others. For example, employers are legally bound to provide employees with a safe and hygienic working environment. Medical practitioners such as doctors or nurses also have a legal duty of care towards their patients, meaning that they are bound to provide them with appropriate standards of medical care.
- That the Defendant performed a negligent action or inaction which breached their duty of care towards you. In the case of an accident at work, this could mean that your employer ignored a health and safety hazard, which resulted in you having an accident. In the case of clinical negligence, this could would mean that the medical practitioner delivered substandard medical care.
- Finally your injury lawyer, will have to prove that the accident, or substandard care was the cause of your illness or injury. In the case of medical negligence (also known as clinical negligence), it may be that the alleged negligence worsened an existing medical condition. Your medical negligence solicitor will have to provide evidence that this was the case.
How Do You Choose The Right Personal Injury Lawyer?
It is almost impossible to claim as much compensation as you are legally entitled to for a personal injury, without a properly qualified personal injury solicitor to represent you. Choosing the right personal injury solicitor, can make a big difference to whether or not you win your personal injury claim.
All Scottish injury lawyers (and personal injury solicitors in the rest of Britain) are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). This does not mean however, that they all provide the same quality of service. If you use a solicitor from a reputable firm such as Legal Expert, you are guaranteed a high quality of service. Our solicitors have excellent track records of winning personal injury claims like yours. They will not accept a compensation settlement from the Defendant that is lower than your claim is actually worth, and will push to get you the highest possible settlement. We are so confident in the abilities of our personal injury solicitors that we offer all of our clients the option to make a no win no fee claim, which means you won’t pay us a penny unless you win.

Do I Need To Use A Dundee Personal Injury Solicitor?
Many claimants believe that if they live in a particular area, that they have to use a personal injury solicitor, lawyer, or law firm who are locally based to make their accident claim. At Legal Expert we are a nationwide service. We believe that you should prioritise the solicitor’s suitability for handling your accident claim, over their location. This means you could use a solicitor or lawyer who is based elsewhere across the country. Although some clients worry about communicating with their representative, if you have a personal solicitor based elsewhere in the country, there is no reason why they can’t consult you and stay in regular communication with you, as your claim proceeds.
Ofcourse, if you require a medical assessment Legal Expert can arrange for you to have this done locally. Our expert in Dundee is;
Mark Innes Burgin
The Alba Clinic,
148 Princes Street,
Remember, we are a nationwide personal injury solicitor’s firm, so wherever you are based, we can find the right no win no fee solicitor to make your claim.
Dundee Personal Injury Claims Our Team Can Handle
If you have been injured or made ill anywhere in the country, in an accident that was not your fault, no matter where you live, Legal Expert could provide you with a personal injury solicitor to handle your claim. Many of our clients wonder if they can only claim compensation for certain types of illnesses or injuries.
Below are some common examples of the sorts of accidents and resulting injuries which your no win no fee solicitors can help clients to make compensation claims for.
Industrial Disease Compensation Claims
As we have already stated, employers have a legal duty of care towards their staff and therefore must provide them with a safe and hygienic workplace environment. This is codified in the Health And Safety Act of 1974. If your workplace neglected their duty of care towards you by ignoring a health and safety hazard, which resulted in an accident that caused you an illness or injury, they could be held liable for your injuries. As a result, they could have to pay you workplace accident compensation.
Have you been infected with an industrial disease because your employer neglected to take proper health and safety precautions to protect you, the worker? If you have, then you could be entitled to claim tens of thousands of pounds in compensation. Negligence of proper standards of health and safety in the workplace can cause the following industrial diseases: asthma, asbestos exposure and siderosis.
Dundee Medical Negligence Compensation Claims
Medical negligence means that a patient receives substandard care from a medical practitioner resulting in them becoming ill, injured, or having their medical condition worsened. Some examples of medical negligence include: a doctor misdiagnosing a patient, prescribing the wrong medicine, or a surgeon making an error during surgery. In very serious instances, clinical negligence can cause an avoidable death.
If you have experienced medical negligence (also known as clinical negligence)in Dundee, you could be entitled to make a medical negligence compensation claim worth tens of thousands of pounds, or even higher in very serious cases of clinical negligence. Similarly, if you have a close relative who died because of medical negligence, or are the parent under a child under the age of 18 who was harmed by medical negligence, you could be entitled to claim medical negligence on their behalf.

Accident At Work Claims In Dundee
As we have already stated, according to the Health and Safety Act of 1974, employers have a duty of care towards their employees, whilst at work. This includes employed staff, agency workers and self employed contractors. To uphold their duty of care, employers must conduct regular risk assessments to identify health and safety hazards and ensure control hazards are applied to remove the risk they pose. If an employee is injured due to an employer ignoring a health and safety accident, the employer could be held legally liable for their injuries and have to pay the injured party accident at work compensation. Common accidents at work include: manual handling injuries, slip, trip and fall injuries and shelving and racking accidents. If you have experienced an accident at work in Dundee, you could use a personal injury solicitor specialising in workplace accident claims to conduct your compensation claim.

Trip and fall injuries caused by hazards on the floor are a common cause of personal injury compensation claims. What can cause slip and fall accidents? A spillage on a restaurant floor that has not been mopped up, broken floorboards, broken or uneven paving slabs and broken railings that collapse underneath someone’s weight can all cause slip, trip and fall accidents. Trip and fall accidents can cause injuries such as sprains, strains, fractured bones and broken bones.

Serious Injury Compensation Claims
Have you suffered a serious suffered injury due to someone else’s negligence? We often define serious injuries as injuries or illnesses that have a life changing effect on the victim. For example, those where the victim is left with brain damage, or a permanent disability. Appropriately, compensation claims for serious injuries are often worth hundreds of thousands or even millions of pounds, because of the life changing effect they can have. If you have suffered a serious injury in an accident that was not your fault, don’t let those responsible get away with it.

No Win No Fee: Personal Injury Lawyer In Scotland
At Legal Expert, we understand that claiming compensation can be a stressful experience. Many people who are claiming compensation have suffered difficult injuries that have had a negative impact on their quality of life. They may have even sustained a permanent degree of disability or a debilitating illness as a result, which will have life changing effects. Injuries can also have a negative financial effect on the victim, potentially causing them to lose income if they are unable to work for a period of time. In more serious circumstances, the person may not be able to work anymore in their choose career or be able to work at all. This is why we help you to make a no win no fee claim. If you are unable to work, your solicitor may be able to secure interim payments for you from the liable party, to cover your ongoing payments.
Even if you have legitimate grounds to claim compensation, you may be worried about having to find the funds to pay a solicitor upfront, or worry about being left out of pocket, in the unlikely circumstances that you do not win your personal injury claim. That’s why we offer all of our clients in Dundee and elsewhere the opportunity to make a no win no fee personal injury claim.

Instead, your fees will be taken out of your final compensation package if and when you win.
