Investigating serious injury claims
There are two key things we need to do when investigating your claim for you:
- Show that the defendant is liable for your injuries
- Show how much compensation you are entitled to
To establish these two points, we will usually need to gather a significant amount of evidence, including from witnesses, doctors and other professional experts. We need to ensure this evidence is robust and effectively presented to help ensure the defendant accepts liability or that a judge finds them liable if the matter goes to court.
With our experience and specialist knowledge of serious injury claims, we can ensure all of the right evidence is collected and used to effectively support your claim. This reduces the possibility of an effective challenge to your claim and makes it much more likely that the defendant will accept liability and offer an early settlement.
Out of court settlements for serious injury claims
Virtually all of the personal injury claims we handle are resolved with an out-of-court settlement. This allows you to avoid the stress and uncertainty of court proceedings, while usually allowing claims to be resolved much faster and with significantly lower legal fees.
We have strong skills in negotiation, mediation and other Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) techniques, meaning we can usually secure a voluntary agreement to resolve even the most complex and contentious claims.
Court proceedings for serious injury claims
Only a tiny minority of the cases we deal with ever require court proceedings, but where a settlement cannot be agreed out of court, we have the skills and experience to ensure your case is presented effectively and to give you the best chance of a fair outcome.
We have strong links with specialist barristers who can advise on your case and represent you in court, while we will work with you to make sure you know what to expect and to keep the process as straightforward and stress-free as possible.
It is worth noting that, even where court proceedings are initiated, most claims will still then be resolved with a pre-trial settlement, so the likelihood of you ever having to go to court are very slim.
No win, no fee serious injury claims
We represent all of our serious injury claims clients on the basis of a Conditional Fee Agreement, more commonly referred to as a ‘No Win, No Fee’ arrangement.
With a no win, no fee deal, you do not pay anything to us to start a claim and you will only be required to cover our legal fees if we win compensation for you. If your claim does not result in compensation, then you will owe us nothing.
This takes the financial risk out of pursuing a claim for you and also means that when we take on your claim, you can be confident that we believe you have a very strong chance of winning.
