Did you know that the way in which court cases are dealt with in Scotland is different to the way in which they are dealt with in the rest of the UK? This is because Scotland has its own legal system and its own procedures and practices.
This means that if you suffer an accident of any sort in Scotland and decide to make a claim for compensation, the law of Scotland will usually apply.
You will need to consult a solicitor who is qualified in Scots Law and any No Win No Fee agreement you sign with them will also need to conform to the Scottish rules as well.
Claiming for Personal Injuries in Scotland
As in the rest of the UK, you can make a Scottish personal injuries claim for a huge range of different types of accident and incidents. This includes, for example:
- Accidents at work
- Road accidents
- Industrial diseases
- Defective products, such as faulty breast implants
- Accidents and illness abroad
Over the years we have found that certain parts of Scotland are more prone to certain types of accident claims than others. For example, Clydeside and Greater Glasgow have a higher level of asbestos-related compensation claims, due to the heavy industries that used to be dominant in those areas.
