How can we help

Will I be able to make a claim?
You should be able to claim financial compensation for your injury if the accident (or 'date of knowledge') happened:
- in the last three years, and;
- someone else was to blame, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any other considerations?
Yes. There are a number of other factors that can affect whether a successful claim will be possible, such as the circumstances of your accident or whether a minor was injured.
Speak to an injury solicitor now on 0800 376 1001 to find out if you have a claim. You can also find out if you have a claim with our Personal Injury Claim Checker:
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
Calculating how much compensation you can claim for an injury can be complicated.

Accidents in a public place
Health and Safety statistics stress the fact that slips and trips are by far the most prevalent accident in the workplace in 2015. These types of accident are often the precursor to injuries categorised as something else for instance being hit by another person, a fall from a ladder or a swimming pool drowning accident. Public liability compensation claims for injuries like sprained wrists suffered on tripping on a street are also quite prevalent with recent slips having occurred on Suilven Heights and on Main St.
When a person is injured or becomes ill as the result of a GP, nurse or other medical professional's lack of care, it may be possible to make a medical negligence claim. Quittance's specialist solicitor panel can help you claim compensation from the hospital or clinic responsible for the injury.
If you only want closure or answers instead of a compensation award, you can raise a formal complaint. For example, to make a formal complaint against NHS Forth Valley, you can write to Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Stirling Road, Larbert, Falkirk.

Reviews for solicitors in Laurieston
Different lawyers adopt many different approaches, from more casual and friendly to formal and traditional. Before you call, checking injury lawyer reviews should give you a much better idea of the level of service on offer, and the factors that matter most to you.
Do you need a local injury lawyer ?
The whereabouts of the solicitors office is not critical as injury cases can be run by phone and email.
It is however necessary to choose a firm with national medical centres as you will usually have to go to a medical examination.

Can I claim for someone else?
Yes. In certain circumstances, it is possible to claim compensation on behalf of another person in the capacity of a 'litigation friend'.
If 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 on behalf of the injured person.
The litigation friend will be responsible for communicating with the solicitors, and for making decisions in respect of the claim.
Can I claim if I was partly responsible for an accident?
You may still be able to claim compensation even if you contributed to your accident or to your injuries.
However, if you were partly to blame (known as contributory negligence), your compensation may be reduced and it may be more difficult to prove liability.
How long will my claim take?
The length of time needed to secure compensation can vary considerably.
For example, straightforward car accident claims can settle in a matter of weeks, whereas complex medical negligence cases can 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.
Taken from average case times, this table sets out approximately how long personal injury claims take to settle:

Will I have to go to court?
Highly unlikely. The vast majority of claims that are settled by the solicitor panel are settled out of court.
Only a very small percentage (approx. 5%) of personal injury claims go to court. Generally, only very complex cases, or those where liability cannot be resolved, end up in court.
Cases that do ultimately go to court are held in front of a judge, not a jury.
Will I have to go to a solicitor's office?
No. You will not need visit a solicitor's office. As with most professional services, it is no longer necessary to meet face to face with your solicitor. Personal injury claims are dealt with via email, post and telephone.
Should you need to have a medical, this will be arranged at a medical centre near you or at your GP's surgery.
Can I get an early 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 before your claim is concluded. The amount you receive in interim payments would then be deducted from your final compensation settlement or award.
