Some people ask “should I
bother to even make a claim?”
To answer this question, it’s important to remember
why Personal Injury Claims happen:
- To receive compensation for injuries caused to you
- To hold the responsible party accountable
- To prevent the same thing from happening to others
As someone who has been inconvenienced by an accident that wasn’t their fault, the personal injury claims process not only compensates you for this, but also helps to stop the same thing from happening to others.

Personal Injury Claims in Scotland have been around for a very long time and have been a part of the UK legal system for many years.
The first recorded case of a personal injury claim in the UK dates back to the 14th century when a man named John Grimwood sued another man for damages after he was injured in a fight.
Since then, personal injury claims have become much more common, as the UK legal system has developed to better protect the rights of injured people.
