Making a personal injury claim
Claims must usually be made within 3 years of the injury.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as RSI are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what is important in these situations.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a work-related illness or road accident, there are three key components to proving a claim. It must be proven that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
The solicitor will discuss these issues and should look at how they apply in your case.

What should be considered when checking Giffnock solicitor reviews?
There is often no substitute for picking up the phone and talking to a solicitor about your claim. Before picking up the phone, looking up injury lawyer reviews should give you a idea of the range of service levels.
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 serious shoulder injuries could vary between £10,340 and £15,510 (based on 2015 market research).

Compensation can be arranged for a broad range of injury and illness in Giffnock. Our team have assisted with injuries and medical conditions including:
Clinical and medical negligence in Giffnock
Clinical negligence - formerly known as medical negligence - is when there has been a breach of duty by a medical professional, NHS or private. An example might be a medical misdiagnosis compensation claim. Our panel of solicitors acting for East Renfrewshire and Giffnock have helped with claims brought against NHS and private hospitals that include Eastwood Resource Centre, 38 Seres Rd, Clarkston, Glasgow, G76 7QF.
Slips, trips and falls
Health and Saftey Executive statistics underscore the fact that slips and trips are by some margin the most prevalent cause of injury at work in 2014/15. Slips and trips are often the precursor to injuries recorded in another category, such as being hit by tools in use or a river drowning accident. Public liability cases for injuries such as bruised backs experienced on slippery pavements are also common with pothole trips having happened in the area.
