Frequently asked questions
What qualifies as a personal injury case?
A personal injury claim can cover physical or psychological injury or illness that is caused by the negligence of another. For example, if you have been hurt in an accident and someone else is to blame, this would qualify as a personal injury case.
Do I need a solicitor for a personal injury claim?
Yes, you will need a solicitor’s support to make a personal injury claim. There are strict time limits for making a claim, so you should act quickly if you have been injured as the result of someone else’s negligence.
What happens if I lose my personal injury claim?
If you lose your personal injury claim, this means that the person you are claiming compensation from has been found not liable for your injuries. They won’t have to pay you damages, but you may still have legal bills to pay. Some solicitors will offer a “no win, no fee” clause to your contract so you are not burdened with the cost if you do not win your case.
Do all personal injury claims go to court?
Only a small percentage of personal injury claims go to court. Most organisations will negotiate a settlement to avoid going to court. If you cannot agree to a settlement in the early stages, then the case may be decided in court.
