Scotland Accident Claim Questions

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 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.

What clients are saying about 1stClaims service today

“My reason for contacting you was to help me find a solicitor to deal with a medical negligence claim. My previous solicitor no longer does this kind of work. I can thoroughly recommend the services that 1st Claims offer for anybody who is seeking advice regarding medical negligence. The lady who took my details was very efficient and polite. Within hours I was phoned by a solicitor who you had recommended, and matters are now proceeding in a satisfactory way.

Before contacting you, I was apprehensive that I was not going to find anybody who would be able to help me in this specialised field. The benefits of your service are the fast response, followup and a good understanding of what is required. I have complete confidence in recommending your excellent service. I am actually a retired doctor and can understand whether the people with whom I am dealing have a clear knowledge of what is required. Before I rang 1st Claims, i contacted a marketing agency and was told:-

1. That as my claim was so old, it was time barred.
2. they were unable to help as I had already been to another solicitor.

Both the reasons that I was given are completely wrong. ”

Kindest regards,
Dr E A Hopkins, LRCP MRCS
