Personal injury Scotland- Areas of Specialization
Our Personal Injury Scotland lawyers do not accept a case simply because a client is injured. Every case is weighed carefully based on various factors, the most important of which would be its validity. For a personal injury claim to be valid, proof of the injury must be provided together with proof that the injury is not the client’s fault but caused by another party. On the other hand, even dog bites and accidents may be the basis of a personal injury claim but only for as long as proof of another party’s negligence or wrongful action is clear.
Majority of personal injury claims today involve injuries and accidents that take place at or during work.
The Different Areas of Specialization for Personal Injury Lawyers
When a personal injury solicitor selects an area of specialization, it typically has to do with the nature of injury he or she feels most strongly and knowledgeable about.

Lawyers who used to work as a car sales representative or for an automotive company might be prompted by their background to specialize in road accidents and injuries. On the other hand, someone who had grown up caring for an ill or elderly relative may aspire to specialize in medical malpractice.
