Last year, Transport Scotland reported that there were 6,712 casualties from car accidents. That is a huge number of people, in Scotland, who's lives have been affected and for some it is devastating. At Digby Brown, we help victims of car accidents every day claim the compensation they are entitled to when that accident was a result of the negligence of someone else.
Many people injured in car accidents, whether a driver or passenger, are not aware that it is crucial to seek independent legal advice. Only with the help of specialist solicitors in personal injury are clients able to secure fair compensation, appropriate for their loss and suffering as well as considering any long-term implications of the injury they have sustained.
On average, we secure over 3 times the initial offer given to car accident victims - we fully investigate the circumstances to properly value your loss.
Like many other types of accidents, people have three years from the date of the car accident to claim compensation.
It is therefore vital that you get in touch with an expert lawyer as soon as possible to ensure you do not lose out on your right to claim.
The earlier you begin the claim process, the quicker we can start to try and put things right.
The first step is getting in touch via email, phone or text message. As soon as we have details of what happened, we can determine whether you have a potential car accident injury claim.
Once we have carried out some initial investigations, we like to follow up with a meeting, either face to face at our offices or your home, or via telephone.
We will then explain in more detail our no win no fee funding, the steps we will take to progress your claim and anything you may be able to do to help. We will never ask you to pay any money towards the costs of running your claim.
At Digby Brown, we have our own no win no fee funding which we offer via Compensate. This ensures clients are safeguarded against paying any costs throughout the case, but gives us the necessary funding to investigate your claim, collect evidence to support your claim – through expert witnesses, and if need be, take the case to court.
All these steps help make sure that clients receive every penny they are entitled to.
At Digby Brown, we have the experienced lawyers who specialise in car accident claims. This means they understand this area of law completely and are able to achieve the best outcome for your car accident claim.
