Edinburgh city

Here at Accident Line Direct, we provide high-quality personal injury solicitors for people who have been affected by negligence across Edinburgh and the UK.

If you have been injured – psychologically or physically – as a result of someone else’s negligence, you could be entitled to a personal injury claim.

Negligence can occur almost anywhere, from the busy Edinburgh roads to your daily workplace, so it’s important to know when you could be entitled to compensation.

We provide professional personal injury lawyers who work on a No Win No Fee basis, so you don’t have to worry about any unwelcome fees prior to beginning your claim. If our solicitors are successful in retrieving your compensation, they typically require a small fee capped at 25% of the compensation amount.  

Why Make a Personal Injury Claim?

Making a claim can be quite daunting if you’re unfamiliar with the process, but you can rest assured that our experts at Accident Line Direct will be on hand to guide you and essentially take over the legal paperwork.

We will work with the third-party insurers to determine an agreed settlement, so you don’t have to worry about the hassle of trying to justify your claim – we’ll do that for you.

If you are in a position that entitles you to a significant sum of money to help with your recovery, why wouldn’t you claim?

Whether it’s to cover a loss of earnings from being unable to work or simply to be compensated for the physical or psychological pain that you have unfairly endured, making a claim for compensation allows you to recover without the worry of losing money.

Not only could you receive financial compensation, but there is also a possibility of physiotherapy, care and so on in order to aid your recovery further.

Types of Injury Claims Edinburgh

At Accident Line Direct, we cover a variety of non-fault injuries and causes – from medical, or clinical, negligence to collisions on the road.

Road Traffic Collisions

In 2017, a reported 1,083 road traffic accidents in Edinburgh resulted in a casualty, with six being fatal, 144 categorised as ‘serious’ and others listed as minor injuries.

Road traffic accidents are a problem across the UK as a whole, and Edinburgh is no exception, so be sure to get in touch if you have been involved in a car crash that wasn’t your fault and has left you injured.

There has also been a notable increase of 16% more people cycling to work in the last ten years. Cyclists are also entitled to compensation should they be hit on the road due to other drivers’ negligence, as are lorry drivers and so on.

Whether you have been in an accident involving a car, lorry, bus, bicycle or any type of other road vehicle, give us a call today.

In Scotland, there was an estimated 37,000 reports of stress, depression or anxiety that was caused by (or made worse by) work.

Your employers owe you a duty of care and should not breach it, whether that is a lack of safety precautions for labouring professions, or a disregard for staff’s psychological health. If you feel that negligence at your workplace has led to you being injured or ill, get in touch.
