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.
Can I make a compensation claim?
If you suffered an injury in the last three years and someone else was at fault, our panel of award-winning solicitors can help you make a compensation claim.
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 the criteria for 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.
What is my claim worth?
The injury compensation you are likely to receive is based on a number of factors. Our easy to use calculator gives an accurate estimate of your likely award or settlement.

Officially recorded statistics emphasise the fact that employee slips and trips are, by some degree, the most common accident at work in 2015. Slips, trips and falls are often connected to injuries filed under a different category for instance being struck by machinery or a harmful substance accident. Public place legal claims for injuries like pulled muscles suffered on pavement ice are also quite prevalent with slips and trips having occurred on Queensgate and on Lochalsh Rd.

Locating the best personal injury lawyer for your compensation claim

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.
