Our national panel of solicitors help Claimants across the UK to retain more compensation.
Whether you are based in Inverness or anywhere else in the UK, our experienced injury solicitors will assist with your claim and we will always arrange a medical at a local medical centre.
Making a claim
Compensation claims must be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred in most cases.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must prove:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
Your lawyer can take you through these points and will look at how they apply in your case.
Locating the best personal injury lawyer for your compensation claim
You will be in contact with your solicitor for a long period of time, from several months for less serious injuries to potentially years for complex cases. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however the level of service offered by different firms varies.
Given the impact your solicitor can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, choosing a lawyer that matches your needs is vital.
Do I need a local solicitor ?
The location of the law firm is not so critical as injury cases are usually run by phone and email.
You will need to select a law firm that provides national medical centres as Claimants will need to attend a medical examination.

The variation in success fees and After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums between different firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements (CFA) can have a significant impact on your compensation.
E.g. the amount of financial compensation retained by an injured person being awarded compensation of £11,159 for mild tinnitus with some hearing loss might vary from £6,695 to £9,485.
