Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal.

Our client, Mr Iain Duffin, worked as a warehouse operator, driving a delivery vehicle for TNT. At the time of the accident, which happened on 13 June 2016, he was returning to the warehouse after he had just dropped off a delivery.

He was driving down the A737 and came to a stop to give way on Linwood Roundabout. As he was waiting for the other car to pass before entering the roundabout, a third-party vehicle came up behind him and collided with the rear end of his vehicle.

On 17 November 2016, our client, a team manager at a call centre for Clydesdale Bank, was knocked over while using a zebra crossing in a Tesco car park.

Our client was exiting the supermarket, located on Glasgow Road in Kilmarnock, with her husband. They had just been shopping and were now making their way back to the car park. Our client had proceeded to cross the road on the zebra crossing outside the shop when the third-party vehicle turned out of an aisle in the car park and collided with her right-hand side. She fell on to the vehicle's bonnet and then on to the ground.

Our client worked as a bus driver for Stagecoach at the time of the accident, which was caused by the poor judgement of a third-party driver.

In January 2017,  he had been driving his bus north on the B730, the Ayrshire road between the villages of Rankinston and Drongan.

On 14 January 2017, our client, an engineer, was driving down Union Street in Glasgow. His two daughters were sat in the back of the vehicle. He stopped at a set of traffic lights, preparing to turn left at the next junction. His car was now at the front of a queue of traffic, and directly behind him was a bus. As the lights changed and our client began to turn left, a pedestrian suddenly walked out into the road in front of him, causing him to apply the brakes. However, the bus, which was intending to carry on forward, didn't brake in time and collided with the rear of our client's vehicle.

On 13 December 2016, our client, a bus driver for Stagecoach Western was driving a single-decker bus from Ardrossan to Kilmarnock.

He had been driving down Lauchlan Way in Kilwinning, at no more than 20 mph, when a third-party vehicle coming in the opposite direction suddenly veered into his path and collided with the front of the bus. Our client believes the reason the driver veered over was because she was trying to overtake a vehicle whish was moving slowly or preparing to stop in the road.
