The 5 Steps of a Personal Injury Claim

With McGee Solicitors, making a personal injury claim involves five easy steps:-

1. Free Consultation

Firstly, contact us for a Free Consultation. We will talk to you about your accident and injuries. This claim assessment is 100% free of charge and carries no obligation. You will get professional legal advice, without having to worry about the cost.

2. Start The Claim Process

We will begin by writing to the person or organisation at fault, or their insurance company on your behalf. This might be another driver, your place of work or someone else.

We will tell them that you are making a claim for compensation for your injuries because of their negligence. We will invite them to accept responsibility. You will not need to communicate with them –  we will take care of that on your behalf.

3. Injury Assessment

We can then arrange for you to see a medical expert, getting an appointment that is convenient for you. This medical expert will prepare a report regarding your injuries, including how long they are likely to affect your life, and whether there’s anything that might help your recovery.

4. We Negotiate Your Compensation

Once liability is accepted by the other party our next task is to get you the maximum amount of compensation. We will carefully calculate how much you should receive, based on things such as your pain and suffering, and your past and future financial losses.

We are experts at negotiating with Insurance Companies and we work hard to get you the best possible settlement.

If liability is not accepted in your case we will then discuss bringing your case to Court and the next steps involved.

5. We Send You a Settlement Cheque

When we are satisfied that you are receiving the maximum amount of compensation, the Insurance Company will send your settlement cheque. It is that easy!

      "If there was a rating system for Solicitors/Law Firms you would be 10/10! Thanks again to Michael McGee for the successful outcome of my Personal Injury Claim. I never thought that it would have realised the amount that you secured on completion of the case. All the way you remained contactable and reassured me throughout, I am so grateful for this as being injured can be stressful enough without added anxiety. Even though I was injured in an industrial accident and still have the aches and pains, the compensation you won for me helps to make my family more comfortable."
