- The full names and contact numbers of all individuals involved in the incident;
- Details of any police dockets or emergency services reports; and
- Details of the insurance providers for the other parties involved in the incident.
It is also crucial that you keep a full record of all relevant information, reports, and receipts for expenses incurred from the date of your incident, as this information could be used in support of your compensation claim.

How Long Will No Win No Fee Solicitors Edinburgh Need To Resolve A Personal Injury Claim?
Every accident involving personal injury is unique, as is the compensation claim process that follows the incident. A personal injury claim can be settled in a matter of months, while others are more complicated and will take longer to resolve. The length of time to resolve a matter will depend on the facts specific to your case. Our expert No Win No Fee Solicitors in Edinburgh have handled many personal injury cases before, and will be able to give you good idea of how long your claim is likely to take once Claim Justice has fully assessed the merits and facts of your case.
In general, the length of time it takes to resolve your case will depend on how complicated the facts and the disputable issues are, as well as the conduct of the party on the other side. Personal injury claims can become more complicated if your injuries are extremely serious, if there is a dispute over the facts, or if you were involved in a ‘hit and run’ accident, as this may make it more difficult to prove legal responsibility. Your personal injury solicitor in Edinburgh will first work at resolving and settling your case outside of court, but sometimes this will not be possible and the matter may run to trial.
No matter how your incident occurred or who you think is to blame for the incident, it is important that you speak to a legal professional from Claim Justice as soon as possible to determine whether you have a valid personal injury claim. Our experienced claims team members handle every personal injury claim through a fast-track assessment and allocation process; so that we can help our clients get the compensation they deserve as soon as possible.
Our No Win No Fee Solicitors in Edinburgh will give you an estimate of how long they expect your claim to take once they have been through the details of your case with you.

Contact Claim Justice for a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our No Win No Fee Solicitors in Edinburgh today.
When Will My No Win No Fee Solicitors Edinburgh Make My Claim?
Generally, you need to institute a personal injury claim within three years of the date of the personal injury, or within three years of the date that you discovered your injuries- whichever date is later. There are some exceptions to this rule, for example you may be allowed a longer time period if you are claiming on behalf of a child or protected person. On the other hand, if the personal injury was the result of criminal activity such as a hit and run, time limits may vary if the claim is instituted through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. There is also a possibility that you could claim on behalf of a deceased person, but the law around this can become complicated, so it is advisable that you speak to a legal professional before you take these steps. If you have any questions about the time period for making your personal injury claim, our dedicated personal injury claims team in Edinburgh is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for a free and confidential discussion.

How Much Compensation Can My No Win No Fee Solicitors Edinburgh Help Me Claim?
Your right to compensation is founded on getting you back to the position you were in before the accident occurred, or before you suffered a personal injury. In injury claims generally, compensation sums are calculated with reference to the kind or nature of the injury suffered, and the type of care that the victim may need going forward to be able to live with their injuries. Your No Win No Fee Solicitor will also include a claim for out-of-pocket expenses that you have incurred as a result of the incident, which is known as special damages.
Your No Win No Fee Solicitor in Edinburgh will include an amount for general and special damages in your compensation claim. In summary, general damages are compensation for the physical injuries you have suffered, while special damages are related to those additional expenses you have incurred, or will incur, due to the personal injury. Your No Win No Fee Solicitor Edinburgh will be sure to go through your calculation of general and special damages with you in detail once you’ve agreed to make a personal injury claim with us.
There are general guidelines to the calculation of your claim for general damages based on different levels of harm experienced in personal injury claims. Your No Win No Fee Solicitor in Edinburgh will calculate your general damages by comparing your independent medical report with the sums advised in the official Judicial Board Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases. The compensation that you will receive at the conclusion of your personal injury case will be influenced by details such as how serious your injury is and how long you will take to recover from your injuries.
There are many injuries that can form the basis of personal injury claims. Some of the common injuries that the Claim Justice team deal with include whiplash, head and brain injuries, loss of limbs, breaks, fractures, and loss of limb.
Any injury to the head is a serious issue, because the brain is also at risk of injury. A person suffering from minor head injury, with no injury to the brain, may be entitled to claim compensation of up to £6,000. If there is major damage to the head and the brain has also been affected, the compensation claim can be around £21,500. The most serious cases would be those where the victim is left completely unresponsive and has suffered permanent serious brain damage, which could fetch a compensation of over £215,000. The compensation sum awarded will depend on how serious your head injury is.
Mental or Psychological Injuries
Again, the total compensation that you can claim for a mental injury will depend on the severity of the mental or psychological injuries you have suffered. If you have suffered psychological harm that is ruled as temporary, and your life is expected to return to normal soon, your compensation claim can be anything between £4,000 and £10,000. Where mental and psychological injuries are more serious or permanent, the compensation claim can reach up to £50,000.
Upper Body Injuries
If you have suffered minor injuries to the upper body area, including the neck and shoulders, you may have a compensation claim in the amount of up to £6,000, depending on the nature of your injuries. If you have suffered more serious upper body injuries, for example dislocation and fractures, you could have a claim of up to £29,000.The biggest compensation pay-out that you can receive will be for serious, permanent injuries such as paraplegia, where the amount of compensation can be anything between £35,000 and £100,000.
Back injuries are risky, painful and tiring. If you have injured your back in an accident, there is a high risk of spinal damage and it is crucial that you get a medical assessment to prevent any further potential damage. A back injury can result in decreased mobility, or even result in paralysis. A claim for minor back injuries can reach up to £9,000, while serious permanent back injuries to nerve root or spinal cord can result in compensation of up to £120,000.
Arms and Hands Injuries
It can be tricky to calculate the potential loss that a person suffers because of a wrist or hand injury. Less serious hand and wrist injuries can give you a personal injury claim of up to £5,500, whereas a permanent injury or disability can be up to £40,000.
Lower Body Injuries
Injuries to the lower body area include any kind of injury to your ankles, knees, hips and legs. As with the other forms of injuries, the amount that you can claim for lower body injuries will vary depending on the nature of your injury. Injury claims for minor lower body injuries can reach up to £10,000. If you have suffered lower body injuries that lead to permanent disability, loss of limb, or consistent and permanent pain, then your compensation claim could be up to £25,000.
The examples of compensation for various types of injuries mentioned above are not in any way fixed, and should only be used as a rough guideline for the potential value of personal injury claims available to different accident victims. Your individual injury claim will be assessed on a case by case basis by one of our injury claims experts in a free, confidential consultation once you provide us with all the details.
Special Damages Claimed By No Win No Fee Solicitors in Edinburgh
Special damages forming part of your claim will include compensation for any and all out of pocket expenses you’ve had to incur as a result of the incident. This is a broad category of damages, and can range from loss of past and future income, to costs of counselling and therapy sessions, to traveling expenses, supplementary childcare expenses, as well as nursing and costs related to special household adaptations made to adjust to your injuries. Your No Win No Fee Solicitor in Edinburgh will carefully outline which sums will be included in your special damages claim.
It is important to know that special damages can only be claimed if you present some sort of evidence of the expenses incurred or to be incurred. You will need to demonstrate that you have already incurred these expenses, or will in future incur these expenses, for example by presenting receipts, reports, payslips and other documentation relevant to the damages. Our injury claims team is available to consult 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is ready answer any questions you might have about the calculation of your general and special damages claim.

Car accidents are one of the main causes of personal injury in Edinburgh, and in the United Kingdom as a whole. According to the statistics released by the Department of Transport, there were around 150 500 reported personal injury car accidents in the United Kingdom for the year ending June 2019.
In simple terms, a car accident is any type of incident that involves a car. Car accidents can occur for a variety of reasons and can lead to a variety of accident claims. A car accident could involve a situation where two cars collide with one another, or where a car collides with a motorbike or bicycle, and also include incidents where a pedestrian is injured by a car.

Our No Win No Fee Solicitors Edinburgh Handle Accident At Work Claims
An accident at work is essentially an unplanned (but often anticipatable) incident that transpires at a workplace because of specific circumstances at the site or premises, because of the way in which a job is being done, or because of how certain equipment is being used. As a result of these circumstances, an incident occurs and someone (usually an employee) is injured. The employee is then entitled to claim compensation from the person legally responsible for their injuries, and an accident at work claims process ensues.
You have a right to feel safe at your place of work. While you go about your daily job, the last thing you would expect is to be involved in an incident at work caused by your employer’s negligence. Whether you work in the construction industry, in an office, or in a supermarket, your employer has a legal duty make sure your place of work is safe and secure. This includes conducting continuous risk assessments and providing sufficient health and safety training to staff members.
Some jobs carry more risk of an incident happening at work, purely because of the nature of the daily tasks that employees are involved in. For this reason there are specific laws and procedures in place designed to help keep employees safe while they are at their place of work.
Amongst other things, this means that your employer has to ensure the safety of:
- the physical space at your place of work, including maintaining fire exits and escape routes;
- the system and processes at your place of work;
- the plant and equipment at your place of work, including testing any electrical equipment that employees might use at the place of work;
- the working practices, including first aid and emergency plans; and
- the protective equipment at your place of work. This includes ensuring that sufficient and reasonable amounts of protective equipment, first aid supplies, and protective uniforms are available to employees.
Unfortunately, not all employers take safety seriously and many fail to take the necessary measures to protect their employees from accidents at work. This can result in employees suffering from all kinds of injuries at work. Injuries caused by incidents at work can have far-reaching effects, influencing an employee’s ability to work properly, and in serious cases resulting in permanent injury or even fatalities.
Your employer is ultimately responsible for any harm that you may suffer at your place of work as a result of someone else’s negligence, whether the incident was caused by someone’s positive act or their failure to act. Whether your incident was caused by a mistake of another employee or joke played by one of your co-workers, at the end of the day it is your employer that is responsible for your safety at work. You don’t have to worry about a fellow employee having to pay out of their own pocket for an accident at work claim that you make, even if they actually caused the incident. This is because of a principle called vicarious liability, which makes sure that all employers are liable for the actions of their employees.
If you are worried about the potential financial implications that your accident at work claim may have on your employer, or about the status of your employment relationship once you have made a claim, you need not worry any longer. Your employer has employer’s liability insurance to cover any accident at work claims made against them. Every employer is legally required to take out this employers’ liability insurance, to ensure that they are able to pay compensation for any accidents at work without it affecting the business financially.
Many of the reported accidents at work claims that Claim Justice deals with involve some sort of manual handling incident. The majority of these cases are a direct result of employers failing to pay the necessary attention to manual handling safety rules and processes. In many cases, lifting and carrying injuries sustained by employees could easily have been prevented.
Our No Win No Fee Solicitors In Edinburgh Handle Public Place Accident Claims
Claim Justice is highly experienced in handling personal injury claims which have occurred in a wide range of public places, including theme parks, shopping precincts, diners and taverns, parks, schools, cinemas, fêtes and music halls.
If you have suffered a personal injury when you were in a public place and you believe it was due to negligence of another individual or body, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries. Councils, shop owners, businesses and public bodies all have a duty to the public, to take reasonable measures to prevent people from being injured on the premises under their control.
If your injury occurred on a council owned property, such as a public walkway or a library, then you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against the local authority, as long as the incident was due to their negligence. When injuries occur in public spaces, the incident often involves a slip or a trip on an unmaintained road or a pavement, which means that the local council will be responsible for your compensation claim.
When instituting a claim against a council for failing to maintain a road or sidewalk, our persona injury solicitors in Edinburgh will need to prove that the local council was negligent in their duty to the public by failing to keep the pavement safe. This involves proving that, based on the circumstances of the case, it was not reasonable for the local council to let the public space to fall into a state of disrepair that it could result in a person being injured.
