    Will I Go To Court For My Personal Injury Claim?


    The very idea of having to stand up in court and face the person or people that you are making a claim against, is enough to put fear into the hearts of many individuals. In fact it is enough to put someone off actually making the claim in the first place. But the truth is a little different and many people who are entitled to make a claim for financial compensation, don’t have to appear in court. If you believe that you have a case for suing somebody for negligence, please call us at Accident Advice Helpline. We will talk you through the entire process in a friendly and confidential manner, with absolutely no obligation on your part.

    How These Claims Actually Work

    Once you have decided that you have been hurt and/or lost out financially as a result of another’s negligence, you need to write down all of the details. These should include the description of the whole event and the names of the people involved. Your personal injuries and amounts of financial losses should also be in this report. You should then contact a legal specialist, such as Accident Advice Helpline, and discuss your situation with them. At Accident Advice Helpline we will use a bespoke claims calculator to indicate whether or not your claim is viable or not, all in 30 seconds! Most of these claims can be settled out of court, and many of Accident Advice Helpline’s cases can be dealt with over the phone. This is because legal bills can be incredibly expensive and the insurance companies involved will usually go for the cheaper option. Many financial compensation claims are fairly straightforward and the blame can be placed at the guilty party’s doorstep very early on.

    Exceptional Circumstances

    As with most legal issues, there is always the odd exception to the rule, and this is also the case with claiming for financial compensation. If the case is a little complicated, it may be difficult to lay the blame on the defendant. If the insurance company that is representing the other party does not believe that they are guilty, there may be a problem. The other issue may be when the amount that you are claiming for is disputed.

    Open Claim Calculator

    If you decide to call Accident Advice Helpline, we will tell you if there is a possibility of your claim case going to court. However, the majority of our clients who lodge a claim for financial compensation will never have to attend a court case.
