We have been working with Scottish law firms to ensure we cover the whole of Scotland
(PRWEB) April 13, 2010
No win no fee claims company National Accident Helpline is giving Scottish injury claimants ease-of-access to an injury and accident claims service that has been established successfully in the UK since 1993.
The company has launched a dedicated web page for Scottish claimants and increased service capacity.
Adam Rhodes, commercial director of National Accident Helpline, said: “We have been working with Scottish law firms to ensure we cover the whole of Scotland. Scottish law is different to English law, so the new web page is designed to help people who are unsure of how the legal process works and to answer questions on how they can claim the compensation to which they are entitled. They may feel overwhelmed by the idea of claiming against their employer or a large organisation such as a company or local authority.”
Statistics from 2008/09 show that an estimated 104,000 people in Scotland believed they were suffering from a work-related illness and, during the same period, an estimated 3.1 million working days were lost in Scotland due to workplace injury and work-related ill health. In 2008, 270 people were killed on Scotland’s roads and 15,306 were injured.
Visitors to the National Accident Helpline site can view information for Scotland covering details of common types of accident claims, how to make a claim, likely compensation amounts and how the no win no fee process works. After discussing their accident or injury with a National Accident Helpline advisor, an enquirer will be referred to a personal injury lawyer in Scotland who will advise on how the claim can proceed.
The service can be used online at http://www.national-accident-helpline.co.uk/scotland or by calling 0800 279 8263.
