We understand the legal process and the impact this has on clients and their families so we will work with you to ensure that the process is as hassle free and supportive for you as possible.
The majority of claims that are raised as court action do not proceed to a full hearing. There are incentives on both sides to avoid court action which is positive however this is not guaranteed. If a court action requires to be raised on your behalf we will guide you through the court process.
We will advise you at all significant steps of the court action ("litigation"). It is important that you instruct specialist solicitors to ensure that you get the correct level of representation and you achieve an outcome that is fair, just and reasonable.
Every case is different and will vary according to your specific circumstances however normally you can claim for compensation for your injuries and any losses which you have suffered as a result of your injury (for example wage loss, damaged personal effects or good, travel costs, services supplied by relatives etc).
The amount you will receive will depend on the evidence available, whether the neglected party is fully or partially responsible, the losses suffered and the any additional costs to you. In terms of your injury claim factors taken into account when assessing the level of compensation are the extent and severity of your injury, the long terms effects of your injury and the extent to which the injury has affected your life.
