Interested in using our accident claims solicitors covering Paisley?

Instead of asking you to waste time travelling to see us, we provide our service online, over the phone and by email. This means that, if your case is accepted, we can begin working on it almost immediately.
When we appoint a lawyer to a claim, they’ll start by discussing it with the claimant so they can check how they’ve been affected by their injuries. The next step of the claim is to gather evidence to try and prove who caused the incident and what injuries were sustained. To help with this, you’ll need to visit a local medical specialist so that the extent of your suffering and a prognosis can be documented.
Once your claim has been sent to the defendant, we’ll make sure you don’t need to deal with their insurers or lawyers. Instead, your solicitor will handle communication on your behalf. So that you know what’s going on, you’ll receive lots of updates and you’ll be able to ask questions if needed. If liability is argued over, your solicitor will try to counter with legal arguments and by supplying additional evidence.
We should point out that we’d never settle a claim just to say we’d been successful. Instead, all settlement offers are reviewed by our solicitors. If the offer is not fair, your solicitor will try to arrange a higher amount so that your injuries are compensated fairly.
