A bit more information to help you
How long will the claim process take?
Every case is different, so it’s very difficult to say at the early stages of your claim how long the process is likely to take. We deal with different types of claims in Scotland, from accidents at work to whiplash injuries, so there are many different factors which contribute to the length of each and every claim.
Can I be compensated for losses other than personal injury?
Yes. Loss of income and taxi fares paid to get you around can be compensated for to some extent, not to mention any prescription medicine paid for.
