How Do You Select An Accident Claims Solicitor In Scotland?

If you have been involved in an accident in Scotland, how do you choose an accident claims solicitor that will provide you with the best prospects of success of your claim? We have compiled this guide to help you ask the right questions for choosing an accident claims solicitor wherever you are located in Scotland.


You need to select a solicitor that is clearly seen to be an expert in the field of accident claims in Scotland. You can find out whether accident claims are an important part of their business by looking for the following signs:

  1. A dedicated Accident Claims website. If they have gone to the time and expense to develop an accident claims website this must be an important part of their business. If they did not handle a large volume of these types of claims you might find one or two pages on a general Solicitors’ website, but a dedicated claims website shows expertise and commitment to this area of law.
  2. Their website is more than just a holding page, and has different sections detailing their expertise in a variety of forms of accident claims. The areas should include:
    • Road accident claims
    • Motorbike accident claims
    • Cycling accident claims
    • Work accident claims and
    • All other types of accident claims
  3. They are located in Scotland. If your accident happened in Scotland, even if you live in England, you must have a solicitor based in Scotland to handle your accident claim.


If someone is a specialist in the field of accident claims, you will expect to see feedback from many of their clients complementing them on their excellent service. Search for a testimonials section on the website and you will begin to get a feel for the quality of service you can expect from the firm.

A Real Not Virtual Firm

If you have been involved in an accident, you need a service from a proven professional. You should look for a firm that is not a faceless organisation but that explains who will handle your claim. Ideally that person should be a qualified solicitor as opposed to a junior claims handler. Are their pictures on the website, is the number of year’s experience easy to find? These points again prove experience and expertise in Accident Claims.

Easy To Contact

The solicitor should make it easy for you to contact them. If you need help because you are unable to work and may be losing earnings due to the injury sustained in the accident, you need a solicitor that is easy to contact. If they are not available immediately, they should be able to call you back within one business hour.


Finding a solicitor with a dedicated accident claims website, one with many years experience and that is easy to contact are important factors. Finally, when you speak with them you should find them easy to talk to. If you are pursuing an accident claim a friendly solicitor will make the whole process much more straightforward for you.

Thinking about making a claim?

My case was dealt with personally by Stan Moffat and what a brilliant guy. His office contacted me personally by telephone at the start of my claim to explain who they were and what they would be doing for me. All through the case I was kept fully informed of all actions either by e-mail or by letter and reassured by Stan several times of any queries I had.

It is very seldom that a solicitor will take the time to speak personally at any time with you without getting run through secretaries etc. I commend this man for that as this was a very upsetting and important time for me and he did everything in his power to make this as easy and as swift as possible for me.

I highly recommend the service that this firm brings and the speed that they move at.
