What is a personal injury claim?

A personal injury claim is a legal process in which an individual who has been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence or intentional harm seeks compensation for their damages, such as medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. The goal of a personal injury claim is to hold the responsible party accountable and to compensate the injured party for the harm they have suffered.

Aside from the injuries, it is possible that in many cases these result in financial losses if a specialist personal injury solicitor was not consulted after the incident.

The law in Scotland protects us if another person or organisation’s negligence causes us to suffer harm. Whether you were injured in an accident at work, in a public place, or in a road traffic accident, if your injury was not your fault, then you are entitled to claim compensation for the suffering and loss you have had to endure as a result. The highly experienced personal injury lawyers at Jones Whyte Law are ready to assist you with your claim.

We understand that it’s not always easy dealing with a personal injury claim. Without the support of a personal injury specialist, you could miss out on the compensation you deserve.

One of the reasons for this is that when you pursue a claim, you are often dealing with the other party’s insurers, who in turn, are working in their client’s best interests and consequently trying to reduce the payout amount.

Why should I make a personal injury claim?

If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence or intentional harm, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages. Here are some reasons why you should consider making a personal injury claim:

  • Hold the Responsible Party Accountable: When you make a personal injury claim, you are holding the responsible party accountable for their actions. This can help prevent similar incidents from happening to others in the future and can bring a sense of justice to the situation.
