A Step-by-step Guide to the Personal Injury Claims Process
Finding out if you are owed personal injury compensation
We will establish whether you are owed compensation for your injury. This will depend on whether we can show that someone else was wholly or partly to blame for your injury.
Accessing the right care and support for your needs
It can often be challenging to access the right care and support following a personal injury. Right from the very start, our personal injury lawyers will focus on helping you access the right care, treatment and support and guide you through the maze of therapeutic help and treatment.
We also have our own ‘in-house’ rehabilitation specialists who are on hand to assess the needs of our injured clients and their families. They work closely with our legal teams to ensure those needs are best met.
Working out how much personal injury compensation you can claim
Knowing how much compensation you are entitled to is, obviously, of key importance. We will need to look at both the financial and non-financial impact of your injury and make sure all of the ways you have been affected by your injury are accounted for, so we can get the maximum amount of compensation possible.
Securing interim payments for personal injury claims
Waiting for a claim to be settled should not mean that you are not able to get the very best care or essential financial support. Where liability has been accepted, we can usually agree on interim payments to replace the lost income and cover your immediate needs, leaving you to focus on getting better while the final settlement is being worked out.
Negotiating an out-of-court settlement
Most personal injury compensation claims are settled by negotiation. This has the advantage of avoiding court proceedings and makes the claims process faster, more certain and less stressful for you.
Navigating court proceedings
Should court proceedings be required to get you the right level of compensation, we will ensure your case is properly prepared and that you have the best representation. We will also be by your side and continue to provide close, personal support and the best legal advice, every step of the way.
Managing your personal injury compensation
We can also assist you in terms of thinking about the best way to manage your compensation to ensure your long-term needs are met. We have a Client Funds Management Team who are able to assist on a range of financial matters, including advising on Personal Injury Trusts.
