A personal injury claim is a legal process which you can pursue if you have been hurt in an accident which was someone else’s fault. It is the process by which you recover compensation from the person or party who was responsible for your injury.

How we make a personal injury claim
We will begin by sending a formal letter to the person or party responsible for your injury. This may be a road traffic injury, an injury at work or an injury in a public place. We will also arrange for you to undergo an independent medical report which will be necessary as evidence for your injuries. The doctor will carry out a comprehensive examination and discuss your overall wellbeing following the accident or injury. They will write up a full report which will be submitted to the defendant.
Now there are two possibilities. The defendant may accept responsibility for your injury and you will receive an offer of compensation. If you are happy with this offer then you can accept to settle the case or you can ask our solicitors to negotiate for a higher amount if you feel that the first offer is insufficient for your injuries or losses. If the case is settled in your favour then you will receive your compensation and the case will be closed on a positive note for you.
If the party does not accept responsibility and the case is lost, then as we work on a no win no fee basis you will not have anything to pay. However, upon your instruction or where we feel this is unfair to you, we will negotiate on your behalf, submitting further evidence where possible and if the case is still unsuccessful there is still nothing for you to pay. In some cases where our solicitors feel that your case can be won we will ask if you would like to proceed further and we can take the defendant to court.
