We have helped hundreds of people in Gartcosh, Lanarkshire and throughout the UK claim compensation for:
Will I be able to make a claim?
You should be eligible to make an injury claim if your injury occurred:
- within the last three years, and;
- another person was at least partly to blame, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any other points to consider?
Yes. In practice, several other factors can affect whether a successful no win, no fee claim will be possible, such as the type of illness or injury or whether the claim is considered to be low-quantum.
A brief phone consultation will tell you whether you can claim. You will be under no obligation to start a claim with Quittance. If you prefer, you can check your claim online with our Personal Injury Claim Checker.
Do I have longer to claim if injured as a child?
If you are the parent or guardian of an injured child, you can start a claim on their behalf, in the capacity of a 'litigation friend'. If you suffered an injury as a child, you have until you turn 21 years old to claim compensation.
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

What are Gartcosh road accident statistics?
The panel of certified no win, no fee lawyers have vast experience in fighting for maximum settlements for claimants injured in a car or motorcycle accident in Gartcosh.
Accidents involving drivers, cyclists, pedestrians and other road users in Gartcosh are relatively common. Government data indicates there were 488 road accidents in Lanarkshire in 2021; 345 slight accidents, 129 accidents and 14 fatalities.
What are the work accident statistics in Gartcosh?
Per 100,000 workers, there were 568 non-fatal work accidents and 1.84 fatalities in Lanarkshire in 2021.
Can I claim for someone else?
Yes. It is possible to claim compensation on behalf of another person, in the capacity of a 'litigation friend'.
If, for example, 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 for them.
The litigation friend will be responsible for communicating with the personal injury solicitors, and for making decisions in respect of the claim.
Can I claim if I was partly to blame?
Even if you feel you were partly responsible for your accident, you may still be able to claim compensation.
You may also still be able to claim if something you did (or failed to do) meant your injuries were more serious than they might have otherwise been (e.g. you were knocked off your bike, but you weren't wearing a helmet).
If you were partly to blame, this is known as contributory negligence. Successful claims are often made on the basis of contributory negligence, although compensation may be reduced.
How long will my claim take?
The time needed to resolve a compensation claim and pay out compensation can vary considerably.
For example, straightforward car accident claims can settle in a matter of weeks, whereas complex medical negligence cases can sometimes 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.
This table sets out approximately how long personal injury claims take to settle:
Personal injury claim type
Estimated claim duration*
4 to 9 months
6 to 9 months
12 to 36 months
12 to 18 months

Will I have to go to court?
The vast majority of claims that are settled by the solicitor panel are settled out of court.
Only a very small percentage (approx. 2%) of personal injury claims go to court - typically only very complex cases, or those where liability cannot be resolved.
Can I get an early (interim) 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 out to you before your claim is concluded. The amount you receive in interim payments would then be deducted from your final compensation settlement or award.
