Injury Compensation Claims Glasgow, South Lanarkshire & East Ayrshire
If you have been injured at work, in a public place or anywhere else as a result of someone else’s negligence then you are, by law, entitled to compensation.
Compensation is awarded when someone who owes you a ‘duty of care’ fails to meet that duty. We all owe a duty of care to those who we may reasonably foresee will be affected by our actions. For instance, we owe a duty of care to other road users while driving..
If this duty is breached, and you are injured as a result, then the law entitles you to compensation to put you in the position you would have been in but for the injury. This can include damages for the loss of earnings, the cost of care or alterations to your home or lifestyle as well as a monetary figure designed to compensate you for the injury itself.
When beginning a personal injury claim it’s important to take expert advice. The person who has caused you harm (or more likely their insurer) obviously wishes to limit the compensation they must pay. In most cases, they will make an offer which is far below the level of compensation which the law deems appropriate. A personal injury solicitor will be able to advise you of the appropriate level of compensation as well as what you can and can’t claim for. In most cases, the personal injury solicitor obtains your compensation by negotiating with the other side or their insurers, without the need to go to court, saving you time and further stress.
If court is unavoidable, Gebbie and Wilson will represent you and battle to get you the level of compensation you are entitled to. If you have been injured, and it wasn’t your fault, or you have been in an accident and want to know if you can make claim, contact Gebbie & Wilson today.
