Personal injury lawyers in Edinburgh
Bonnar Accident Law personal injury lawyers can help you claim accident compensation
Personal injury compensation in Edinburgh - how our solicitors can help you make a claimIf you have been hurt or injured in an accident within the last three years that wasn't your fault, then you need a specialist personal injury law firm to give you proper legal advice on the merits of your claim and your best course of action.
Every personal injury compensation claim has to be supported by evidence and it is our job to help you build a solid case.
We will listen to everything you tell us about your accident and produce a detailed written statement of what happened. This will include the cause of the accident, the nature and severity of the injuries you sustained, the medical treatment you received and are likely to need in the future and the impact of your accident on your family life and work situation. When we have done all this - and we move fast - we will be in a position to calculate the true value of your claim.
There are a number of factors to take into consideration when evaluating a claim and mistakes are made by inexperienced lawyers which cost an injured person dearly and drastically reduce the ammount of compensation they receive. With Bonnar Accident Law on you side you have nothing to worry about - we know what we're doing.
Our accident lawyers will contact the defender's insurance company immediately we recive your instructions and will take care of everything on your behalf. You do not need to be concerned with the stress of handling correspondence from the other side or dealing with their insurers on the phone. Your focus should be on recovering from your injuries and we do everything in our power to help you get better. We can arrange for interim payments to cover the cost of medical treatment, physiotherapy and other costs associated with the aftermath of your accident so that you receive the best of care at no cost to you or your family.
The burden of proof has always fallen on the shoulders of the claimant and in the current climate - when acccident victims are bullied by the insurance companies and vilified in the tabloid press - it is more important than ever to be prepared.
That's why you need a firm like ours to redress the balance in your favour because from the first contact you can be assured that the defender's legal team (bought and paid for by the insurance company) will try every trick in the book to unnerve you and undermine your case.
We take on the insurance company and handle all discussions, correspondance and negotiations. In many cases you never even have to speak with the other side because we manage every aspect of your accident claim on your behalf.
Our friendly and approachable accident solicitors are here to help you with any questions you have regarding compensation claims and we are ready to go to work for you immediately on a No win - No fee basis, which means that should we lose (and we very rarely lose), you pay nothing, ever. When we win we may take a success fee which is based on the complexity of the case.
The percentage of the success fee will be explained to you in writing at the start of the process and in any event will never exceed 20%. Given our track record of achieving settlement ammounts 3 or 4 times the value of the insurance company's initial offer we are able to justify our fee because we get our clients more money - full stop.
For example, 80% of £10,000 is a much better outcome for an injured person than 100% of £5,000...and it's only our litigation experience and legal expertise that will get the insurance company to pay out more than they intend to.
Our success fee ranges from 0% in straightforward road traffic whiplash claims up to a maximum of 20% for serious injuries and difficult or challenging cases.
Making a claim can seem a daunting prospect but our team will explain the process in detail without using any legal jargon. Our aim is to help hurt and injured people make the right decision about their future and choosing the right solicitor is the essential first step.
If you or someone in your family needs help with an accident compensation claim in Edinburgh, we will review your case free of charge and with no obligation. We will tell you if we think your claim has a chance of success and we will explain your options.
