Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am a solicitor in Scotland. Do you have credible medical evidence that your condition was caused by your ex flatmate? Assuming that to be the case does your ex flatmate have the resources to pay any award that the court may make in your favour?
In that case find a personal injury lawyer to take your case. The second one you mention would be suitable. Do not do this yourself. These cases are complex and most lawyers won’t touch PTSD so you do need a specialist.
As I indicated in my initial answer if you have credible medical evidence and it is clear that the Defender has resources there should be no issue. However if you are looking for a no win no fee firm you won’t get that for a case like this. PTSD is not something that most firms will take a gamble on. You will either have to apply for legal aid or fund the case yourself if Digby Brown or firms like that won’t take it on.
Sorry, do you want me to recommend lawyers which do no win no fee or those who don’t?
