However, if you don’t have the free time to read all of this guide, you can always give Legal Expert a call on 0800 073 8804. One of our team will be happy to help you through the process of starting a claim, as well as answer any questions you might have.

Do I Have A Valid Accident Claim?

When it comes to making a personal injury claim using personal injury solicitors, Scotland residents need to consider the concept of liability. If you are injured or become ill due to the actions of a third party, then, in theory, you have a valid reason to make a claim.

This is also true for accidents that are partially your fault. For example, imagine you are driving along, talking to somebody on the phone, and the car in front breaks far too sharply. You collide with the car. The other driver is at fault because he was not paying due care and attention, which forced him to break harshly when he saw an oncoming hazard. The defendant’s lawyer could make the case that had you not been talking on the phone, you would have reacted quicker and avoided the accident.

In this example, both the defendant and claimant are partially to blame for the victim’s injuries. The defendant would plead reduced liability as a percentage. For example, the defendant’s solicitor could plead that the defendant was only 70% liable for the injuries, and therefore, compensation would be calculated based on this.

If you are confused over the issue of liability, and whether you are eligible to make a claim, call Legal Expert on the number at the bottom of this guide. We will go over your claim with you, and let you know whether we believe you are eligible for compensation or not.

How Do I Find The Right Solicitor For My Accident Claim?

Finding the best personal injury lawyer in Scotland to process your personal injury claim is going to take some effort. Sensibly, you would only shortlist legal teams that are suitable to make your claim Scottish solicitors are registered with Law Society of Scotland.  Solicitors in England and Wales UK are required to be registered with the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA). However, being registered simply shows the legal firm was able to fulfil the registration requirements, it doesn’t mean the firm is necessarily effective at making injury claims.

Choosing the right legal firm is vital. The more skilled at processing a claim that your personal injury solicitors for Glasgow are, the better your chances of a positive outcome. It could also have an effect on how much compensation you win.

Some legal firms cover all legal services, from property conveyancing to criminal cases. Others specialise in a specific part of the law, such as intellectual property or contract law. And some, like us here at Legal Expert, have focused entirely on helping people win compensation for injuries caused by an accident. Call us on the number at the end of this page to find out how we can help.

What To Consider When Reading Reviews Of Solicitors

As mentioned above, finding a good solicitor to process your claim is going to take some effort. However, if you can find a website that has some good reviews of solicitors, you could cut down on this effort by creating a shortlist based on these reviews. When you are reading the reviews, keep the following considerations in mind, they will help you to make the best use of the information that has been published:

  • Check the date of the review, was it within the last 12 months or so? If not, it may no longer be relevant.
  • Take a look at the type of claim the reviewer was making, was it similar to your own, or similar enough to be relevant?
  • Did the solicitor process the claim under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)? And if the did, what percentage of the compensation received did they take as their fee?
  • How did the reviewer find dealing with the solicitor? Was it a positive experience? Where there any bad points?

Considerations like this will help you when comparing reviews. If you would rather have some help, just give Legal Expert a call on the number at the end of this page. We can explain the process of claiming, and answer any questions that you have.

Do I Have To Use A Solicitor In The City?

You might be under the impression that you are obliged to use a personal injury solicitor in the Glasgow area to process your injury claim. However, while you can use a local legal firm if you wish, this is not a requirement. You are free to choose any solicitor in the UK.

So, it makes sense to leave location out of the selection criteria when looking for the best solicitor for your claim. It is much more important that your solicitor has a proven track record of winning injury claims for their clients. You can always keep in touch with your legal team using the phone or email, so it really does not matter where they are located.

Industrial Disease Claims

Industrial diseases or workplace illnesses are a common type of personal injury case. Every employer in the UK must provide a working environment free of health hazards to its staff. If the company fails to do this, and a member of staff becomes ill due to this failure, then a reason to make a claim will exist.

An important point is that the three-year limit in which you have to make a claim, only starts from the date the illness or disease is diagnosed. This means that it is possible to make a claim against a previous employer. For example, if you were exposed to asbestos dust at work, back before it was recognised as a significant health hazard, and you contracted asbestosis or some other asbestos-related illness recently, you would be able to claim against your old employer that exposed you to the asbestos dust.

For more information, you can even call Legal Expert on the number at the bottom of this page, or check this guide that covers work-related illnesses and diseases:

Serious Accident And Injury Claims

One thing you need to keep in mind when choosing lawyers for serious injury claims, is that these claims, more than any other, are likely to result in a large compensation payment. Therefore, how skilful your solicitor is at processing your claim could make a very big difference in how much compensation you get. Serious injuries include:

  • A permanent medical condition that needs daily treatment due to organ damage.
  • A loss of mobility due to paralysis, either full or partial.
  • A lowering of life quality due to the amputation of a major limb such as an arm or a leg.
  • An inability to be fully functional due to severe brain damage.
