Making a claim

Considerable legislation exists to provide support for people planning to make a claim, and our panel of injury solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to clients with regard to the strength of their claims.
To win a South Lanarkshire personal injury case, your lawyer must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
Starting your claim as soon as possible will enable the solicitor to help collate supporting witness statements and other evidence.
Finding the right personal injury lawyer for your compensation claim
In most cases a claim for compensation can take several months to complete and in severe injuries, some claims can take over a year. All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), however service levels can vary.
Considering the effect your solicitor can have on your recovery, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is a crucial first step.

Choosing a nearby law firm is not important as cases are, as a matter of course, handled remotely.
However, you should instruct a law firm that provides medical facilities near South Lanarkshire as you will almost always need to attend a medical exam.
