The process of claiming compensation varies from case to case, but we’re proud of our ability to take on more complex claims.
Firstly, we’ll need to decide if your claim has a reasonable chance of success. We offer a free initial consultation where we can advise you further and we’ll often be able to offer help, even if your case has been turned away by other solicitors.
Once we’ve taken your case on, we’ll work out who was to blame for your accident (known as liability). Sometimes more than one person or organisation might be responsible for your injury – we’ll work hard to establish the facts around your accident and find those responsible.
We investigate accidents using our team of experts, employing specialists investigators and doctors if we need to. For example, in the case of a road accident we might get a report of the incident from our own accident reconstruction expert.
To support your recovery from injury, we can help you access rehabilitation services and private medical care. We’ll arrange for an independent medical professional to assess your injuries and diagnose any treatment or care that you need, which will help us come up with the compensation figure that’s right for you.
You may also need early compensation payments (or ‘interim’ payments) to help pay for things like travel to and from medical appointments and we may be able to secure these for you while your claim is ongoing.
After we’ve prepared the evidence for your claim, we may meet face-to-face with the responsible person's insurers to talk about settling your case. Often this can be done out of court, providing the responsible person admits they are to blame and we can agree on compensation.
If we can’t agree, your case may go to court for a judge to decide. If you do have to go to court, it’s nothing to worry about. We have years of experience of court proceedings and we’ll stand by you every step of the way. However, even if your case does go to court, many serious injury claims are still settled before the trial date.
