Injuries occur in all kinds of situations each day, but if you have been left injured or ill after an incident that wasn’t your fault in Glasgow, you could be entitled to compensation after making a personal injury claim.

Our professional personal injury solicitors are on hand to guide you through the claiming process and to give you any additional information that you require.

Making a Personal Injury Claim in Glasgow

Before beginning the process of making a personal injury claim, you need to briefly assess the situation yourself.

If you believe you have been a victim of negligence – where someone has failed their duty of care towards you – you should give us a call as soon as possible, bearing in mind that claims must be made within three years of the incident taking place. 

Our trained personal injury solicitors covering Glasgow will then be able to consider your claim, give you advice on what to do next and decide whether a No Win No Fee agreement can be applied.

Using the evidence provided, the at-fault party will be identified and we will work to claim from their insurance company, taking care of all paperwork so that you can rest and recover at home in peace.

We aim to retrieve the best compensation for your personal situation and will use all of our experience and expertise to do so in as little time as possible.

While we fight for your compensation, we will maintain communication with you in order to keep you up-to-date with every step of the claim’s proceedings.

How Much do Personal Injury Solicitors Cost?

As we usually work on a No Win No Fee basis, your claim will cost nothing up-front and you will not have to worry about paying any fees before the process begins.

When the claim is successful and you are rewarded compensation, your personal injury lawyer will receive a small fee of 25% (at most) of the pay-out amount. The rest is yours!

Legal expenses are typically covered by the at-fault party, so you won’t have to worry about that either.

Injuries and Causes

You are able to claim for a variety of injuries – from post-traumatic stress disorder to the amputation of an arm – caused by someone else’s negligence.

Whether it’s an injury from an accident in a public place, a dog bite injury, supermarket injury, or cycling accident injuries, we will work hard to provide you with the best possible compensation payout for your situation.

Official injury statistics for Glasgow reflect the amount of incidents that occur each day, leaving people in pain or with an illness.

Over 2,700 non-fatal injuries were reported in Glasgow from 2013-2016, a substantially higher amount than other local authorities in the UK.

It may not always be visible injuries either, with illnesses such as mesothelioma developing from exposure to asbestos. There were 2,595 mesothelioma deaths in 2016 and it is estimated that a similar number of people died from asbestos-related lung cancer.

Your employer has a duty of care to put precautions in place so that you are not unsafely exposed to the fibres, as it often leads to life-threatening illnesses.
