Have you suffered an injury as a result of an accident in or near Burghead?
Do you live in or near Burghead, Moray?
Having to deal with the consequences of an accident are bad enough if you have not suffered a personal injury.
It can become much more complicated if you have been injured. You can quickly feel frustrated and vulnerable. If your injury is preventing you working, you may be losing earnings and already dealing with money worries on top of the pain and discomfort from your injuries.
We recommend all injured persons to seek independent, specialist, local legal advice from a solicitor as soon as possible following an accident.
You don’t need to go on to make a claim if you don’t want to but it is in your interests to be able to make an informed decision either way.
We are specialist solicitors and we are local.

Our local experience
Below, you will find details of the facts of a couple of cases with which we have dealt for clients in or around Burghead, over the last 5 years or so, and in which their claims for personal injury compensation were successful.
A civilian RAF employee from Elgin who was taking part in a training day at Roseisle Forest, Burghead, and suffered a spinal fracture whilst lifting heavy items as part of a team exercise. This was accepted to be a breach of the manual handling regulations.
A local authority employee from Burghead who was injured in a head-on collision with another vehicle on the A82 road between Inverness and Drumnadrochit. The other vehicle was on the wrong side of the road. This was a high-speed collision, with closing speed estimated as in excess of 80mph. Though the seatbelt and airbags probably prevented life-threatening injuries, it was a significant case of whiplash injuries.
What is the cost of making a personal injury claim?
In most cases, there is no charge for our services at all. You will not pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful.
In the event that your claim succeeds, you will receive 100% of the value of your claim and there will be no deduction for legal costs or any other type of fees or costs.
This position may not apply if it becomes a good idea to raise a court action to pursue your claim action in the Court of Session in Edinburgh. However, many claims do not require court at all and, of those that do, most will go to court locally in Elgin Sheriff Court where the “no deduction” scenario will apply.
