How Long Does a Personal Injury Claim Take in inverness?
Every accident involving personal injury is unique, as is the compensation claim process that follows the incident. A personal injury claim can be settled in a matter of months, while others are more complicated and will take longer to resolve. The length of time to resolve a matter will depend on the facts specific to your case. Our expert personal injury solicitors in Inverness have handled many personal injury cases before, and will be able to give you good idea of how long your claim is likely to take once Free Legal Justice has fully assessed the merits and facts of your case.
In general, the length of time it takes to resolve your case will depend on how complicated the facts and the disputable issues are, as well as the conduct of the party on the other side. Personal injury claims can become more complicated if your injuries are extremely serious, if there is a dispute over the facts, or if you were involved in a ‘hit and run’ accident, as this may make it more difficult to prove legal responsibility. Your personal injury solicitor in Inverness will first work at resolving and settling your case outside of court, but sometimes this will not be possible and the matter may run to trial.

Are There Time Periods For Making My Personal Injury Claim?
Generally, you need to institute a personal injury claim within three years of the date of the personal injury, or within three years of the date that you discovered your injuries- whichever date is later. There are some exceptions to this rule, for example you may be allowed a longer time period if you are claiming on behalf of a child or protected person. On the other hand, if the personal injury was the result of criminal activity such as a hit and run, time limits may vary if the claim is instituted through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. 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.

No matter how minor or how serious your injuries, our accident claim solicitors are specialists in claiming for everything from fairly minor to serious injuries.
To give you a better idea of what can be included in your compensation claim, there are two types of damages that personal injury claims involve, namely general and special damages.
General Damages In A Compensation Claim
Your expert personal injury solicitor in Inverness will work with you to clearly set out the value of general damages included in your claim. General damages comprise of compensation for the personal injuries that you have suffered as a result of the personal injury, and this includes compensation for pain and suffering experienced due to your injuries. One of our personal injury solicitors in Inverness will take you through the calculation of compensation for general damages by looking at the medical report of your injuries which was drawn up by an independent medical officer, together with the amounts set out in the official Judicial Board Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases. This prescribed general damages guideline sets out how much can be claimed as general damages for different types of injuries.
The amount of general damages that you are entitled to will depend on various aspects, such as how serious your injury was, whether there were any complicating factors surrounding the injury, as well as the length of the recovery period, alternatively the level of permanence of the injury. Our accident claim solicitors will need full and accurate descriptions and diagnoses of the injuries you have suffered before they help you to calculate your general damages claim. This is why it is so important that you see a medical professional as soon as you have been injured in a personal injury.
Special Damages In A Compensation Claim
Special damages forming part of your personal injury claim will include compensation for any additional expenses that you’ve incurred as a result of the personal injury. This is a broad category of damages, and can range from loss of past and future income, to costs of counselling and therapy sessions, to traveling expenses, additional childcare expenses, as well as nursing and household adaptations that you have made to help you live with your injuries. Whatever additional costs you have incurred that are connected in some way to the personal injury that was not your fault, our personal injury solicitors in Inverness will explain to you which of these amounts will form part of your claim.
It is important to know that special damages can only be claimed if you can show proof of the expenses that you have already incurred or will incur in future, for example by presenting receipts, reports, payslips and other documentation relevant to the damages. Our accident claims team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to answer any questions you have about the calculation of your general and special damages.

Accident At Work Personal Injury Claims
An accident at work is essentially an unplanned (but often anticipatable) incident that transpires at a workplace because of specific circumstances at the site or premises, because of the way in which a job is being done, 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 is then entitled to claim compensation from the person legally responsible for their injuries, and an accident at work claims process ensues.
Accident At Work Claims Inverness
You have a right to feel safe at your place of work. While you go about your daily job, the last thing you would expect is to be involved in an accident at work caused by your employer’s negligence. Whether you work in the construction industry, in an office, or in a supermarket, your employer has a legal duty make sure your place of work is safe and secure. This includes conducting continuous risk assessments and providing sufficient health and safety training to staff members.
Some jobs carry more risk of an accident at work, purely because of the nature of the daily tasks that employees are involved in. For this reason there are specific laws and procedures in place designed to help 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.
Health and Safety At Work
Unfortunately, not all employers take safety seriously and many fail to take the necessary measures to protect their employees from accidents at work. This can result in employees suffering from all kinds of injuries at work. Injuries caused by accidents at work can have far-reaching effects, influencing an employee’s ability to work properly, and in severe cases resulting in permanent injury or even fatalities.
Your Inverness Employer Is Responsible For Your Work Accident
Your employer is ultimately responsible for any harm that you may suffer at your place of work as a result of someone else’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, at the end of the day it is your employer that is 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 an accident at work claim that you make, even if they actually caused the incident. This is because of a principle called vicarious liability, which makes sure that all employers are liable for the actions of their employees.
Our Work Accident Claims Solicitors In Inverness Can Help
If you are worried about the potential financial implications that your accident at work claim may have on your employer, or about the status of your employment relationship once you have made a claim, you need not worry any longer. Your employer has employer’s liability insurance to cover any accident at work claims made against them. Every employer is legally required to take out this employers’ liability insurance, to ensure that they are able to pay compensation for any accidents at work without it affecting the business financially.
Many of the reported accidents at work claims that Free Legal Justice deals with involve some sort of manual handling incident. The majority of these cases are a direct result of employers failing to pay the necessary attention to manual handling safety rules and processes. In many cases, lifting and carrying injuries sustained by employees could easily have been prevented.
Public Place Personal Injury Claims In inverness
Free Legal Justice is highly experienced in handling personal injury claims which have happened in a wide range of public places, including theme parks, shopping malls, restaurants and bars, parks, schools, theatres, carnivals and music concerts.
If you have suffered a personal injury when you were in a public place and you believe it was due to negligence of another individual or body, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries. Councils, shop owners, businesses and public bodies all have a duty to the public, to take reasonable measures to prevent people from being injured on the premises under their control.
Council Injury Claims In Inverness
If your injury happened on a council owned property, such as a public walkway or a library, then you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against the local authority, as long as the accident was due to their negligence. When injuries happen in public spaces, the accident often involves a slip or a trip on an unmaintained road or a pavement, which means that the local council will be responsible for your compensation claim.
When instituting a claim against a council for failing to maintain a road or sidewalk, our persona injury solicitors in Inverness will need 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 being injured.
