Will My Personal Injury Claim Go To Court?
Will My Case Go To Court?
Most personal injury cases are settled without the need for Court Proceedings. In most cases responsibility (or liability) for the accident is accepted by the other party and we are able to negotiate the maximum compensation settlement for our client. There is therefore no need to take the case to Court.
However, if the other party refuse to admit fault (or accept liability) for the accident or do not make a sufficient compensation proposal then will we consider issuing Court Proceedings on your behalf.
We are Expert Accident Solicitors and provide a Free Consultation. We take care of everything for you and provide a stress-free service.
An Accident can cause serious injury and effect your ability to drive, sleep, exercise and work – as well as the anxiety and stress of being involved in an accident. This can have a huge impact on your life.

Will I Have to Give Evidence in Court?
In some cases people can be worried that they will have to speak in Court. This happens in a very small percentage of cases. Most cases are settled without having to go to Court at all. If your case does go to Court a huge number of Personal Injury Claims will settle before the Hearing, as the Insurance Company could make an improved compensation proposal or accept liability.
In short, issuing Court Proceedings does not mean that the case will end up in front of a Judge as cases often settle right up to the morning of the Hearing.
We will advise you of the strength of your case before going to Court so that you know exactly where you stand. As expert Personal Injury Solicitors we will do everything we can to ensure the success of your case. We will instruct an expert Barrister and any Expert Witnesses that could strengthen your case to ensure it has every chance of success.
How Much Will It Cost?
Before going to Court we also discuss legal costs with you. We will discuss whether you are eligible for Legal Aid. We can apply for Legal Aid funding for your case.
The general position with legal costs in personal injury cases is that if you are successful then the other party will pay your legal costs. If you lose then the legal costs could be awarded against you. Because of this we will discuss with you the prospects of success of your case. There are outlays that may arise in personal injury cases that go to Court, such as, Court Fees, Medical Reports etc. We will therefore discuss payment options regarding funding your case.
Legal Aid Available
If your case has to go to Court we can apply for Legal Aid funding to cover the legal costs of your case. There are financial criteria to be eligible for Legal Aid which we will discuss with you. We will prepare the application and lodge it with the Legal Services Agency on your behalf.
