    Injury claim jargon buster: What does litigation mean?


    Accident claims such as those that are being made due to an accident at work can be stressful as it is without all the jargon of the courts and lawyers. Even reading through one document of the process can be daunting and confusing. There are many words which we would rarely use in everyday speech but that are used all the time in accident claims. These are words and phrases such as amendments, provisional damages and many others. One such word which is hardly ever used in conversation which you will definitely come across during your accident claim is litigation.

    What does litigation mean and how does it apply to my accident at work claim?

    All litigation means is the proceedings. The whole work injury claim process from the paperwork, the lawyers to the final settlement and the tribunal if there is one are all a part of litigation. Litigation is the process in which lawyers discuss the terms and the demands being raised against the company or individual in order to try and win compensation for the work injury.

    Litigation is not only a daunting word but it can also be a confusing and stressful process especially if you are still recovering from your accident at work. Accident Advice Helpline can help make this process as simple and stress free as possible and you may be able to settle your work injury claim without  even stepping foot in a court room.

    There are many different types of accident claims and Accident Advice Helpline can help with all these different claims and will try their best to win the compensation you deserve. With over 10 years’ worth of experience our team of lawyers will help translate anything you don’t understand and will make things as easy as possible for you.
