Making a claim Frequently Asked Questions


Here are some of the frequently asked questions in relation to compensation claims. If you have any further queries don’t hesitate to get in touch and one of our dedicated, highly qualified solicitors will be willing to help.

Every case is different and the length of time a case takes will be dependent on its own facts and circumstances. Some straightforward cases can be resolved within a few weeks and other cases may take a number of years to conclude.

We will act for you on a “No Win, No Fee” basis meaning that we will never ask you to pay a fee to us for our service. Even if your case is unsuccessful we would not look for you to pay the defender’s costs – we would meet these for you.

Compensation is awarded on a case by case basis depending on the severity of the injuries you have sustained and also taking into account other losses, e.g. wage loss. We fully investigate each case individually to ensure that we can obtain the maximum amount of compensation possible for you. For a rough guide as to the value of some different injuries please see our injury claim calculator.

Scots law allows a period of 3 years in which to bring a claim for compensation against the person or organisation you consider to be at fault for causing your accident but the sooner you begin your claim the sooner you will know if your case is going to be successful and the sooner we can obtain a settlement for you. In the case of a child (under 16) being involved in an accident, they have until the eve of their 19th birthday (i.e. 3 years for their 16th birthday) in order to pursue a claim.
