Will my personal injury claim go to court?

Many people are concerned that their personal injury claim will involve having to stand up in court and testify against their opponent, but in reality, very few claims progress to that stage.

The regulations that govern our area of law; the civil procedure rules, guide us towards settling claims amicably, and out of court wherever possible. This is something that both us and the defendant's representatives look to adhere to, and we always try to work with the defendant's representatives to make the process of claiming compensation as straightforward as possible. Although it is sometimes the case that court proceedings will need to be issued, it is very often the case that a claim of this nature is settled before it actually gets to court.

However, if a personal injury claim is of a very serious or complex nature, if the person our client believes is at fault refuses to admit liability, or agreement cannot be reached between the parties on the amount if compensation to be awarded, then it is possible your claim may go to court. We will ensure you have plenty of notice if we believe this is going to be the case, and will work with you to make sure you know exactly what to expect.

If you do have any queries about this, we would advise you to get in touch with us. You can talk to us on 0800 197 32 32.
