We understand that deciding whether to pursue a compensation claim, and if so with which company can be a really difficult issue. Using our 15 years experience of Personal Injury claims we have put together some of the most commonly asked questions to try and help you with your decision. Accident Claims UK from 1stclaims.co.uk will ensure you are extremely well take care of.
Q. Where will my solicitor be based?
We have expert solicitors across Scotland waiting to help you. Wherever you are based, one of our specialist personal injury solicitors can help you. Free home visits are available when necessary.
Will claiming compensation cost me anything?
No. 1stClaims believe you should have free access to justice so we do not charge you for our services. Our solicitors appreciate that we find clients for them and pay us for our service to them. Unlike many other companies, we do not charge you a penny.
Q. Can I claim expenses as well as compensation?
Yes you can claim compensation for private medical treatment, any lost earnings, travel expenses and medication costs. Any expense incurred as a result of the accident can be recovered for you. Your specialist solicitor will assess all of your losses.
Q. If I have to claim against my employer for an accident at work, will I lose my job?
No. Your employer has insurance to cover any compensation so your job should not be affected.
Q. How much compensation will I receive for my injuries?
A lot of people are given false ideas about the real value of their claims to induce them into using a particular claims company. Being an ethical company, that is not the practice of 1stClaims. Our specialist solicitor will give you an honest assessment of your claim as soon as they have enough information from you.
Q. How long do I have to make a claim for compensation?
The general rule is that you have three years from the date of the accident to make a claim for compensation, but this is extended to three years from the date of your 16th birthday if you had not reached this before the accident. If you are in any doubt, please ask your solicitor when you make your claim enquiry.
