Can I claim compensation?
The main criteria for making a claim are that the injury must have occurred:
- in the last three years (limitation) and
- was caused by another party (causation) and
- that party owed you a duty of care (liability).
Are there any exceptions?
Yes. There are quite a few other factors that can affect whether a successful no win, no fee claim will be possible, such as the specific details of the accident or whether there is an untraceable defendant.

The amount of money you could claim for your injury will depend on:
- the extent of your injury, and
- any financial losses or costs you have incurred.
At the start of your claim, your solicitor will consider the many ways your injury has affected your life. Your solicitor will take all of these effects into account to calculate the correct compensation award for you.
This calculation will factor in 'general damages' and 'special damages'.
General damages are awarded for pain, suffering and loss of amenity (PSLA).
Awards for general damages are set by the Judicial College and published in their guidelines for personal injury awards.
Special damages are for financial losses and expenses you have incurred as a result of the accident.
What can I claim for after an injury? (see list)
Examples of special damages (losses you can claim for) include:
- Lost earnings (including future earnings)
- Medical treatment costs
- Travel costs
- Costs of care
- Costs of adapting your home or car

Injuries in a public place
Health and Saftey Executive statistics reveal that slips, trips and falls are the most frequent cause of accidents leading to injury at work. These types of accident are quite often lead to accidents attributed to other reasons for instance being hit by a reversing vehicle, a lifting injury or a toxic substance accident. Public place compensation claims for injuries like pulled muscles experienced on tripping on a street are also quite common with recent pavement crack trips having occurred on Gilburn Place.
Clinical (or medical) negligence is the term for when a person suffers injury or illness as the result of a doctor, nurse or other medical professional's carelessness. Quittance's specialist solicitor panel can help you claim compensation from the NHS trust or private clinic responsible.
Alternatively, you could use the NHS Resolution process if you just want closure rather than a compensation award. You can write to Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Stirling Road, Larbert, Falkirk, for example, to go through the NHS complaints procedure against NHS Forth Valley.

What is Quittance's track record of handling claims in Boness?
We are a national panel of expert solicitors that helps claimants in Boness, Stirlingshire and across the UK, get the best possible compensation settlement.
Our expert solicitors have helped hundreds of claimants across Stirlingshire get compensation for a range of injury circumstances, from slips and trips at work to car passenger accidents.
Medical centres in every town in the UK, home visits (if required) and an expert team at the end of the phone, mean that claiming compensation is as clear and straightforward as possible.
Do you work on 100% No Win, No Fee?
If your claim is not successful, 100% of the solicitor's fees are covered. With nothing to pay up front, you only pay a success fee if your solicitor wins your case.
Do you have to choose a lawyer in Boness?
As with many professional services, you do not need to select a personal injury solicitor near you.
In most cases, the only aspect that needs a local service provider is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
Your lawyer will arrange for a medical practitioner in your area to conduct your medical.
What should be considered when checking Boness solicitor reviews?
There is often no substitute for phoning a solicitor to discuss your case directly. Before you call, checking injury lawyer reviews should give you a idea of the range of service levels.
The disparity in the level of insurance premiums and success fees charged by firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements is considerable.
To illustrate the point, the amount of financial compensation retained by a successful claimant accepting a settlement of £48,404 for a very severe ankle injury could conceivably vary from £29,042 to £41,143.

Can I claim for someone else?
Yes. In certain circumstances, it is possible to claim compensation on behalf of another person in the capacity of a 'litigation friend'.
If an injured person is either too young or vulnerable, too injured or otherwise unable to claim on their own behalf, their litigation friend can handle the claim process on behalf of the injured person.
The litigation friend will be responsible for communicating with the solicitors, and for making decisions in respect of the claim.
Can I claim if I was partly responsible for an accident?
You may still be able to claim compensation even if you contributed to your accident or to your injuries.
However, if you were partly to blame (known as contributory negligence), your compensation may be reduced and it may be more difficult to prove liability.
How long will my claim take?
The length of time needed to secure compensation can vary considerably.
For example, straightforward car accident claims can settle in a matter of weeks, whereas complex medical negligence cases can take years.
Injury claims can also take longer if it is not clear who is responsible for your injury, or if liability is denied by the defendant.
Taken from average case times, this table sets out approximately how long personal injury claims take to settle:

Will I have to go to court?
Highly unlikely. The vast majority of claims that are settled by the solicitor panel are settled out of court.
Only a very small percentage (approx. 5%) of personal injury claims go to court. Generally, only very complex cases, or those where liability cannot be resolved, end up in court.
Cases that do ultimately go to court are held in front of a judge, not a jury.
Will I have to go to a solicitor's office?
No. You will not need visit a solicitor's office. As with most professional services, it is no longer necessary to meet face to face with your solicitor. Personal injury claims are dealt with via email, post and telephone.
Should you need to have a medical, this will be arranged at a medical centre near you or at your GP's surgery.
Can I get an early compensation payment?
If you suffer financial hardship as a result of an injury, you may be able to claim an interim compensation payment.
An interim payment is a partial settlement of your claim which is paid before your claim is concluded. The amount you receive in interim payments would then be deducted from your final compensation settlement or award.
