Have I got a personal injury claim?
If you have been injured, or were diagnosed with an injury or illness, in the last 3 years and a third party owed you a duty of care, our expert solicitors can assist you with a claim for financial compensation.
Qualifying for personal injury compensation
Claims for compensation must be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred in most cases.
To win a Rutherglen personal injury case, it must be shown that:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care
- The defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
The solicitor can take you through these key issues and should look at how they apply in your case.
The total compensation you are likely to get is based on the seriousness of your injuries. Our online injury calculator gives you a realistic idea of your potential damages award.
