If you've suffered an injury or illness as the result of someone else's negligence, then you and your loved ones are likely to be facing a difficult time. Depending on the extent of your injury, you may be required to make significant lifestyle changes, which can put you under a lot of emotional and financial stress. To help you cope, you might be able to claim compensation.
There are many things to consider before making a personal injury claim, but in the end it boils down to this: did you, or a member of your family, suffer an accident or personal injury in the last three years that was caused by someone else?
If the answer is yes, then Thompsons may be able to help you.

- What if you are claiming on behalf of someone else?
- How long will it take?
- How much will it cost?
- How much compensation will you get?

- Any other questions or queries you may have

How much is your injury claim worth?
It is not possible to put an exact figure on how much money you will receive in compensation for a personal injury claim in Scotland, this is because all accident compensation settlements account for individual circumstances, including the level of pain and suffering, recovery time, medical expenses and lasting financial impact.
However, Thompsons personal injury solicitors in Scotland do provide an online compensation calculator that may be able to give you a rough idea of your claim’s value. You can find our compensation calculator, here.
