TYPES OF ACCIDENT CLAIMS
If you’ve been injured in an accident and it feels wrong, we’re here to help you make it right. Following are the types of accident claims:
All road users have a duty to make sure they drive carefully. The injury might not be apparent immediately as the shock of an accident can take over and numb the pain.
Physical injury sustained in a road traffic accident is more commonly known as a whiplash injury. This is caused by a sudden an unexpected jolt.
for example from your car being hit from behind. Some common symptoms for whiplash include neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, back pain, loss of feeling in arms or hands and dizziness. It is advisable to seek medical advice from your GP or local hospital as soon as possible following any injury.
Even if the driver at fault is a family member or friend you can still make a personal injury claim, as all legal actions will be directed at their respective insurance company, not them personally.
Uninsured and Untraced Driver accidents
We can also help with claims relating to uninsured drivers and hit and runs. Here, car accident compensation is paid by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). All UK motor insurance companies are required to pay into the MIB’s fund each year to cover the cost of road accidents caused by ‘untraced drivers’.
The purpose of claiming compensation is to put you back in the position that you were in prior to the accident. If you have sustained loss of earnings, medical expenses, travelling expenses, hire charges etc. we can include theses losses in your compensation claim. It is advisable to keep all invoices and receipts.
We at Legal Link Scotland will make the process of claiming compensation simple and hassle free. We will take witness statements, photographs, liase with the police and insurance companies. Even if recovery of your vehicle, repairs and hire is involved we can take care of everything for you.

All employers have to comply with strict health and safety legislation to ensure that their employees are not put at risk of being injured and that the work environment is safe. Despite this, many personal injury at work or work accidents still occur – accidents which lead to injuries. Do not be afraid of claiming as your employer will have insurance. Your employer has to treat you fairly and can not dismiss you for making a compensation claim.
You normally have 3 years from when your personal injury at work occurred to start your compensation claim and you must claim within this time limit. If the work accident involved a person under 18, then the three years do not start until their 18th birthday.
Injuries sustained from work accidents may mean you have to take time off work to recover which can lead to financial difficulties. Making a work accident claim will help ease the financial burden and also provide you with treatment to enable a full recovery. In addition if there has been any loss of earnings i.e. loss of salary, medical expenses, travelling expenses etc. these can be added to your compensation claim.
