Do I qualify for personal injury compensation?
You should be able to make a compensation claim if you sustained an injury:
- 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 other points to consider?
Yes. In reality, there are several factors that can have a bearing on whether a successful compensation claim will be possible, including the type of accident, whether there was a criminal incident or whether your claim meets your chosen solicitor's risk assessment criteria.
We would be happy to give you a clearer answer. Speak to a personal injury solicitor now on 0800 376 1001. Alternatively, find out if you have a claim with our Instant Claim Checker:
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 data show that employee slips and trips continue to be the most common cause of injury at work. Slips and trips are typically the cause of accidents recorded in another category like being hit by an object falling from a machine or a lake drowning accident. Public liability legal claims for injuries like broken shoulders occurring on pavement cracks are also quite prevalent with recent trips having happened on Glasgow Rd and on Cultenhove Rd.
Litigators can help with claiming compensation for industrial injuries ranging from radiation exposure to hand arm vibration syndrome compensation.

What is Quittance's track record of winning claims in Fallin?
Quittance Legal Services (QLS) is a nationwide panel of award winning personal injury lawyers that helps injured people in Fallin, Stirlingshire and across the country, recover injury compensation.
In the last 12 months, we assisted hundreds of people in Stirlingshire seek compensation for a range of accidents and injuries, from pedestrian accidents to ladder accidents.
Local medical centres, home appointments (if required) and a team of experts only a phone call away, make the claims process 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.
Does the location of the solicitor matter?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
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.
The variation in the amount of personal injury insurance premiums and success fees charged by lawyers working on Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) is surprising.
For instance the amount of financial compensation retained by a claimant accepting a settlement of £6,079 for a minor head injury could conceivably vary from £3,647 to £5,167.

Comparing injury solicitors in Fallin - online reviews
Speaking to a solicitor is useful if you have any questions about their approach. Reviews for personal injury law firms are a useful when contrasting the approach taken by individual firms.
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.
