Legal Jurisdictions That Make Up The UK
The UK is currently made up of three legal jurisdictions – in each jurisdiction the UK law is different.
The three jurisdictions are: 1. England and Wales, 2. Scotland and 3. Northern Ireland.
If you have an accident in any of these countries you should start your claim in this country’s courts.
If however your accident relates to a package holiday or a road traffic accident – it is often possible to commence the claim from your country of residence.
