Personal Injury Solicitors Scotland – AM I ELIGIBLE TO MAKE AN INJURY CLAIM?
Personal Injury Solicitors Scotland – Nobody wants to be a victim of an accident. Yet, accidents happen, and we understand how an accident causes pain not only for the injured but also for the whole family. It is a bad dream that nobody wants to be a part of. Gladly, we live in a country where the laws are equal for all. If, in any case, you are injured due to someone else’s negligence (directly or indirectly), you are entitled to make an injury claim.
In this blog, we will enlist some of the accidents that make a person eligible to make an injury claim in Scotland.
TYPES OF ACCIDENTS:
Unfortunately, accidents occur daily. We have no control if we come across a pet dog on the road while driving. Numerous types of accidents are due to negligence of others, and we suffer from them.
Following are a few types of accidents that make a victim eligible to make an injury claim:
1. ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS:
Any accident that occurs on the road falls in the category of road accidents. It doesn’t matter whether you are a pedestrian, a cyclist, a passenger, or a driver. If you are injured due to a road accident, you can make an injury claim.
Road accidents are the worst. They make victims, and their families suffer. Suppose, in an unfortunate event, you become a victim of a road accident. In that case, you should consult an injury solicitors immediately since the road accident takes your ability to enjoy your everyday life.
An injury claim will allow you to quickly rehabilitate along with financial support so that you can rebuild your life sooner quickly.
2. TRIP ACCIDENTS:
For instance, if a person is walking on a pavement of the public highway and they fell due to a defect on the pavement or raised flagstone that causes an injury, that person can make an injury claim against the local council.
The council is responsible for maintaining the conditions of the highways and pavements. The council is also responsible for taking care of the public. Therefore, you can always make a successful injury claim with the help of an experienced solicitor.
3. SLIP ACCIDENT:
Any accident that occurs due to a slippery surface is a slip accident. If you fell on a slippery surface in your workplace, shopping centre, supermarket, hospital, or anywhere else and the “wet floor” sign was not there, and you are eligible to make an injury claim. It is the duty of the staff of the building to put a “wet floor” sign once the surface is cleaned. So, if you have suffered, make a claim.
4. INDUSTRIAL DISEASES AND ILLNESSES:
This category is tricky, but if you have skilled solicitors from reputable legal firms like Hamilton Douglas Legal, you can easily submit a claim and get the compensation.
Industrial disease is a vast subject. However, suppose you think that the working condition of the industry you work in is unsafe and the condition is causing illness. In that case, Hamilton Douglas Legal can help you get the compensation you deserve.
People suffer from lung diseases, skin disease, occupational cancer, deafness, asthma, latex allergies, and more due to unsafe working conditions. Such people should know their rights as citizens and submit a claim so that the industry is forced to make the working conditions safe and the victims get compensation.
5. DOG BITES:
Dog owners must make sure that their dogs do not harm the general public. However, that’s not always the case. A dog owner should keep the dog close, and the owner should stay in the lead. If a pet dog bites you, call HD Claims immediately so that the work on your claim starts quickly.
6. CRIMINAL ASSAULT:
What happens when you get injured as a result of a crime? Who will compensate for your injury? Don’t worry because Hamilton Douglas Legal has all the answers.
When you get injured due to someone else’s crime, you can submit a claim with our network of Personal Injury Solicitors, HD claims will help you get your compensation from CICA.
CICA stands for Criminal Injury Compensation Authority. The authority is an executive agency of the government of the UK. To date, the agency has paid three billion plus in compensation.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
One should never compromise with injuries and ignorance of others. When accidents occur, people suffer, and in most cases, the assailants lose nothing. Therefore, making an injury claim not only recover your compensation but also teaches the assailant a lesson that they may never forget.
