We’ll have an initial discussion with you which is free and confidential to discuss your case. This time can be used as an opportunity to understand the impact that your injury or illness has had on you and your family. This discussion will be important to confirm if you are able to progress a legal claim. We’ll discuss what funding options are available to you to pay for your claim, including No Win No Fee agreements*.
Our specialist lawyers will look into your case in detail, gathering evidence from independent medical professionals and other specialists. These experts will analyse how your injury or illness occurred and any long term impact on your well being. They’ll also advise us on the rehabilitation and care you’ll need in the future.
We’ll be in touch also with those responsible for your injuries or illness. If they acknowledge responsibility for what has happened to you early in the process, we’ll try to secure interim compensation payments (where appropriate) which can fund any immediate care, rehabilitation, expenses or adaptations . Any interim payments awarded to you will be taken out of your final compensation award.
We’ll always try and negotiate claims out of court. However, if your opponent doesn’t accept responsibility or doesn’t agree with the amount of compensation we feel you need, we’ll start court proceedings.
Even when trial dates have been set, claims are still often settled before reaching court. If your claim does need to go to court, we’ll be there to help you every step of the way, talking you through what will happen so you feel as comfortable as possible.
