The benefits of making a claim
There are numerous benefits to commencing a claim for compensation in these circumstances. These include the following:
- Prevention of similar incidents – This is often the first thought of accident victims and the main reason many raise personal injury compensation claims. They are driven by the desire to ensure that lessons are learned from their experience and that employers, public services and the government take heed so that action is taken to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
- Financial security - A personal injury or illness can have an enormous impact on victims and their loved ones. Worries about financial security will all too often add to the trauma associated with the physical and emotional damage victims suffer. A successful personal injury claim could help to remove this stress and make sure that you and your family receive essential financial provision in the fallout of an accident.
- Justice – if you or a loved one has been injured it is only natural to want to make sure that justice is served on the person or organisation responsible. Whether the defendant is an employer, a road user or some other party, ensuring accountability is an essential function of the Scottish legal system.
