Dependent on whether the person who caused your injury accepts or rejects responsibility will depend on which route you take. But your solicitor is on hand to deal with every step and to guide you through the process.
Responsibility is accepted
Hopefully, the person/s in question will accept responsibility for the injuries they caused you. If so, then your chosen solicitor will negotiate the level of compensation you require.
Your injuries are assessed
We want to make sure that your injuries are checked over by an independent medical expert. That way we can gauge the full extent of your serious injuries and make sure that your compensation is in accordance with any help and support you may need now and in the future. We leave no stone unturned. Our medical experts will come to you, so there is no additional hassle for you to deal with.
A report is provided
Our medical experts will provide your solicitor with a report; one that they’ll share with you. Your solicitor will use this to base the value of your claim and to inform the responsible parties of the exact cost of your losses.
Your claim is valued
The accident in which you sustained serious injuries will be fully investigated. With all the additional evidence and supportive medial records, it’ll then be up to the responsible party/ies to accept or reject liability for your accident.
An agreement is made
Once responsibility has been accepted a settlement can be agreed. It’s at this point that you will receive your compensation cheque, which will officially finalise your claim. If, those held responsible for your accident reject your claim then the following route will be followed by your solicitor.
Responsibility is rejected
If the party/ies involved reject responsibility for your serious injuries then the claim will be entered into a no win no fee arrangement that is dealt with in court.
It’s important that you don’t worry about your claim at this point and to note that your solicitor will both represent and present your case on your behalf.
