Making a claim is often complex and requires the assistance of a solicitor with expertise in this area of law. The legal process largely depends on the type of claim being made, the circumstances leading up to the incident and what parties may be liable for causing the injuries.
The vast majority of compensation claims are resolved through settlement, particularly if the circumstances of the injury are straightforward. This is because both parties are generally keen to avoid costly, lengthy and stressful court processes.
Your compensation lawyer will thoroughly investigate the incident and collect evidence, such as medical documentation, expert opinions and witness accounts, to determine a fair and realistic compensation figure. Legal parties on both sides will then negotiate to reach a settlement that satisfies everyone.
