We launched the Moray Claims website in October 2012.
This is the 100th blog article.
So, as we reach the milestone of 100 Moray Claims blogs, what are the main themes which have evolved via the blog during the last 2 years?
They ask, You answer
I’ve looked to the “They ask, You answer” advice of Marcus Sheridan for guidance, even if most of the time it’s meant predicting rather than knowing what you might want to know about personal injury law.
Moray Claims is a trading name of Grigor & Young and so we started off this blog describing Moray Claims as “Not just another accident claims company”. Probably a bit too cryptic as a headline.
Belatedly, months later, I realised it might be a good idea to explain what is Moray Claims and the purpose of the blog.
In the buzz-speak of the content marketing gurus online, I’ve tried to provide meaningful content, to a targeted audience (you folks in Moray and a bit beyond that) and be authentically helpful. Helping you in Moray to claim fair and full compensation for personal injury.
We’ve looked at the major FAQs
- What can I claim personal injury compensation for?
- How do I maximise the value of my personal injury claim?
- How much compensation will I get for a whiplash injury?
- Why are some claims for the same injury worth less than others?
- How long will it take?
- Will I have to go to court?
- How much will my personal injury claim cost?
- Will I get to keep all my compensation or will there be “hidden” costs?

Donoghue -v- Stevenson
And, most importantly for this Scottish Personal Injury Lawyer who is also a ginger beer addict, we’ve celebrated the fact that the world’s “modern” law of negligence was born in Scotland, via the case of Donoghue -v- Stevenson and the “Paisley Snail”.
