How our personal injury compensation claims service works
Deciding whether you have a claim for personal injury compensation
The first step is to establish whether you have grounds to claim compensation for a personal injury you have suffered.
We will need to show that:
- You suffered an injury which has impacted on your life.
- Someone else was responsible for your injury, either through their negligence or deliberate action.
To prove these points, we will use various types of evidence, including:
- Reports from independent medical experts on the nature of your injuries and their impact on your life
- Witness testimony, written records, CCTV footage etc to show the circumstances leading to your injuries
When you first contact our team, we will be happy to discuss your situation and provide a general opinion on whether we believe your claim is likely to be worth further investigation.
Placing a value on your personal injury claim
The damages available for a personal injury will be based on the impact on the victim’s life, including on their health, emotional wellbeing, career and personal life. Compensation will generally fall into two broad categories:
Financial damages – e.g. paying for medical treatment, physiotherapy, counselling and other essential support to deal with the impact of any injuries caused, as well as replacing lost income.
Non-financial damages – e.g. pain and suffering, as well as loss of amenity i.e. no longer being able to carry out activities that were previously possible before the injuries occurred.
Resolving your personal injury compensation claim
Our goal is always to secure the maximum possible compensation for you, while making the claims process as straightforward and stress-free as we can. The vast majority of claims we handle are settled out of court, but court proceedings are sometimes required to get the right compensation.
Out-of-court settlements – Achieved by negotiation between our personal injury lawyers and the defendant’s legal team. This can allow you to secure maximum compensation faster and with lower legal costs compared to court proceedings, as well as allowing you to avoid the stress and uncertainty of going to court.
Taking your personal injury claim to court – Where a suitable settlement cannot be agreed, we may need to initiate court proceedings. Even where this is the case, a settlement can often be agreed before your court date arrives. Where you do need to attend a hearing, we will ensure your case is prepared effectively and you have the very best specialist representation in your corner.
Funding your personal injury claim
The majority of claims we handle are funded on a no win, no fee basis. With a no win, no fee personal injury claim, there is no upfront cost to start a claim and you will only need to cover our fees if we secure compensation for you. If we do not win compensation for you, you won’t owe us anything.
Other funding options may sometimes be available depending on the circumstances, including legal expenses insurance, trade union funding and legal aid.
We will be happy to discuss the various funding options when you get in touch, so you can have a clear understanding of the likely cost of pursuing a personal injury claim.
