Am I entitled to make a claim?

You should be able to claim financial compensation for your injury if the accident (or 'date of knowledge') happened:

  • in the last three years, and;
  • someone else was to blame, and;
  • that person owed you a duty of care.

Are there any exceptions?

Yes. There are a number of 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 if there is an uninsured driver involved.

How much compensation can I claim for an injury?

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

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

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
  • Physiotherapy
  • Travel costs
  • Costs of care
  • Costs of adapting your home or car

Slips and trips are quite often the forerunner to accidents categorised as another type of accident for instance being struck by machinery or a lake drowning accident. Public liability legal claims for injuries such as fractured wrists suffered on tripping on a street are also quite common with trips having happened on Stirling Rd and on Front Street.

What is Quittance's track record of handling claims in Dunblane?

We are a UK-wide panel of SRA regulated personal injury lawyers that helps people in Dunblane, Stirlingshire and throughout the UK, get compensation.

Last year, we have helped 100's of claimants throughout Stirlingshire get compensation for a range of injury circumstances, including accidents in the workplace and pedestrian accidents.

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 I need to select a local lawyer ?

Choosing a nearby solicitor is not critical as cases are, as a matter of course, managed without the need to meet the solicitor.

However, you should select a law firm that has national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as you will usually be expected to go to an independent medical examination.

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.

Read more about claiming on behalf of another person.

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.

Read more about claiming compensation if you were partly responsible for an accident.

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.
