Is There A Time Period For Making My No Win No Fee Scotland Claim?

Generally, you need to institute a personal injury claim within three years of the date of the personal injury. Also within three years of the date when you discover your injuries. There are some exceptions to this rule. For example, we may allow you a longer time period if you are claiming on behalf of a child.

On the other hand, criminal activity such as a hit and run may also cause personal injury. In that case, the time limit may increase. 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, contact us.

Work Accident No Win No Fee Scotland Claims

An accident at work is essentially an unplanned (but often anticipatable) incident that transpires at a workplace because of specific circumstances at the work premises, because of how a job is carried out, or because of how certain equipment is being used. As a result of these circumstances, an accident happens and someone (usually an employee) is injured. The employee then deserves claim compensation from the person legally responsible for their injuries.

You have a right to feel safe at your place of work. While you do your daily job, you do not expect to be involved in an accident at work which has been caused by your employer’s negligence. Your employer has a legal duty to make sure your workplace is safe and secure. This includes employers undertaking and conducting continuous risk assessments and providing sufficient health and safety training to members of staff.

Some jobs are generally more likely when it comes to the risk of an accident at work. It is because of the nature of the daily tasks that employees do. For this reason, there are specific laws and procedures in place. They 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 at work seriously.

And many fail to take sufficient precautions and measures necessary to protect employees from accidents at work. This can result in employees suffering from all kinds of injuries. Accidents at work can have far-reaching effects, influencing an employee’s ability to work properly. And in severe cases, permanent injury or even fatalities can happen.

Your employer will be legally responsible for any harm that you may suffer at your place of work as a result of another person’s negligence, whether the accident was caused by someone’s positive act or their failure to act. Whether your accident was caused by a mistake of another employee or joke played by one of your co-workers, or our employer’s failure to provide you with proper safety equipment, at the end of the day it is your employer that is legally 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 a work accident claim that you institute against your employer, even if factually they appear to have caused the incident. This is because of a principle called vicarious liability, which makes all employers liable for the actions of their employees.

Don’t worry that your accident at work claim may impact your employer’s finance or reputation. Your employer has employer’s liability insurance to cover any accident at work claims made against them. Every employer should have employers’ liability insurance. They should pay compensation for any accidents at work without it affecting the business financially.

Public Place No Win No Fee Scotland Claims

Claim Justice has many years of experience in handling personal injury claims which have happened in a wide range of public places, including theme parks, shopping centers, restaurants, pubs and bars, parks, schools, libraries, theatres, and music concerts.

If you suffer an injury due to someone’s fault, you can make a compensation claim. Councils, shop owners, businesses, and public bodies all have a duty to the public. They should take safety measures to avoid any accidents. Your injuries may happen on a council owned property, such as a public walkway or a library. If they don’t take precautionary measures and an accident happens, you can make a compensation claim against the local authority. Injuries may happen in public spaces, the accident often involves a slip or a trip on road or pavement. It means that the local council will be responsible for your compensation claim. If we can prove that it was their action or lack of action, that was the cause of the accident.

When instituting a claim against a council for failing to maintain a road or sidewalk, our No Win No Fee Scotland solicitor will, therefore, need to have the means 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 (you or a loved one) being injured.
