Frequently Asked Questions

If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault then you could be entitled to a claim. Phone our team of skilled, professional Injury Solicitors on 0141 442 0122 for more information and advice.

It is important to start the claims process as soon as possible. In most cases, court proceedings must begin within three years of the accident or the date of realisation.

However, the three year limit can be over-ruled if the claimant suffers from a mental disability, is under 18 years of age or if the affliction has remained dormant for a number of years.

By law, your employer cannot dismiss you for making and Accident Compensation Claim. Employers are legally required to be insured against staff accidents so it is their insurance company that will pay your compensation and not your employer.

You will not have to have to pay Ocean Accident Claims for the Solicitor. If you win the case, the legal costs are recovered from the other side.

It is impossible to determine the exact amount that you will receive because all cases are judged independently. Variables such as the extent of the injury and the subsequent impact upon life are taken into account before the decision if finalised.

When the claim is settled you will receive your compensation. Sometimes you may receive an interim payment before the settlement.

The majority of Accident Compensation Claims are settled out of court. Only rare, mitigating cases may be forced to go to court.

You are required to undergo a medical to confirm the extent of your injuries and determine their implications and ramifications.

The lawyer will fill out the vast majority of the paperwork so you can concentrate on recovering from the injury.

If you have any further questions, then call our team of skilled, professional Injury Solicitors on 0141 442 0122.
