Do I have a personal injury claim?
If you were injured in an accident in the last 3 years and a third party was responsible, our expert solicitors can assist you with an injury claim.
What are the criteria for making a claim?
Injury claims should usually be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
For most claims, a successful compensation claim has three key components. It needs to be proven that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
The solicitor will explain how your injury claim relates to each of the points.Back to top

How much compensation you are likely to be awarded will depend on a variety of factors. Our injury calculator gives you a realistic idea of the compensation you will receive for your injuries and financial losses.Back to top

Other injury claims
We understand the difference injury compensation makes to severely injured claimants.
Compensation will lessen the financial load on an injured claimant and their dependants enabling them to focus on rehabilitation.
Slip, trip and fall injuries
Officially reported statistics highlight the fact that employee slips, trips and falls are the most common accident at work. These types of accident are typically related to injuries recorded in another category e.g. being hit by a reversing vehicle, a carrying injury or an exposure to fire accident. Public liability compensation claims for injuries such as cheekbone fractures happening on pavement cracks are also quite prevalent with recent pavement crack trips having happened on Cross St.
Injury lawyers can help with claiming compensation for a multitude of industrial illnesses that include anything from workplace cancer to farmers lung.
Medical negligence in Galston
Clinical (or medical) negligence describes when someone suffers injury or illness due to the carelessness of a doctor, nurse or other medical professional. If you have been affected by clinical negligence, our panel of specialist clinical negligence solicitors can help you claim compensation from the NHS hospital or clinic that was at fault.
Alternatively, you can raise a formal complaint if you are only looking for a detailed explanation of what happened rather than financial compensation. To raise a complaint against NHS Ayrshire & Arran, for example, you can write to Eglinton House, Ailsa Hospital, Dalmellington Road, Ayr, Ayshire.Back to top

How to approach choosing the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor for your accident
It can take several months for most minor injury claims to reach a settlement. Injury claims for very serious injury or illness can take years in some circumstances. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however service levels can vary.
Considering the effect your solicitor can have on your recovery, finding a solicitor to fit your requirements is an important first step.
Are Galston claimants restricted to only local law firms?
You do not need to select a personal injury solicitor near you.
Usually, the only aspect that will need to be performed 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 medical network.
Galston personal injury solicitor reviews
Levels of service provided by lawyers, as with any service, can vary enormously.
Online reviews can certainly be revealing when deciding which solicitor to instruct.
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Find out more here.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a claimant's compensation for mesothelioma could vary between ?56,650 and ?101,750 (based on 2015 market research).
The key issue to be aware of is how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
