Are Clarkston Claimants restricted to only local solicitors?
As with many professional services, you do not need to choose a lawyer near you.
In most cases, the only aspect that should be carried out locally 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.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.

Slip, trip and fall injuries
Recorded data emphasise the fact that employee slips and trips are the most prevalent cause of injury in the workplace. These types of accident are typically forerunner to accidents classified under another heading like being hit by an object falling from a ladder or an animal related accident. Public place legal claims for injuries such as pulled muscles occurring on potholes are also common with recent street trips having happened on Fenwick Rd and on Busby Rd.

CFAs, more commonly known as No Win, No Fee agreements guard Claimants from an obligation to settle their solicitor's fees if they do not win their claim.
A 'success fee' will be charged by Clarkston lawyers that work under a No Win, No Fee agreement. The fee will be usually 25 percent and is taken out of your compensation award.
Will there be any additional costs to account for?
