Do I have a claim?

Eligibility to claim

Claims must be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury in most cases.

Whether a claim is being made for a road accident in Anstruther, there are three components to making a successful claim. It needs to be demonstrated that:

  • the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
  • the duty of care was breached

In all cases, a short, free consultation with an expert solicitor can provide answers and advice.
