Our credentials in Personal Injury Law are strong and reflect the wealth of experience and expertise we hold. Digby Brown is the only firm in Scotland to be top ranked for personal injury by both the top independent legal directories in the UK: Chambers Guide to the UK Legal profession and Legal 500 respectively with three of our specialists rated “Leaders in their Field”.
For many years the firm has achieved a number of awards in litigation, 2015 saw an unprecedented five legal awards won, 2016 a further two at the Law Awards of Scotland and in 2018 we were again named Firm of the Year at the Scott and Co Legal Awards.
We have recognised through our work with other referring solicitors and correspondent firms that personal injury cases can cause unique difficulties to a general law practice. Due to the pressures of time, continual legislative changes and the under settling of cases by insurers - from Digby Brown’s experience, due to the difficulty and risk in litigating, clients do not always receive the best possible service or outcome in their compensation claim.
On average, our clients receive three time the pre-litigation offer made by insurance companies.
The Network has been set up to address this and offers a partnership approach to running personal injury cases.
