    Patience is a virtue

    An accident solicitor in Braintree will typically settle straightforward cases out of court. When the offer to settle is accepted by the defendant, payment of compensation usually happens quite quickly.

    If a case is not settled out of court because the defendant won’t accept liability or the two parties cannot agree on the compensation amount, a judge must decide, if compensation is to be awarded and if so, how much it should be. The claimant must wait until the court sets a date for the hearing. Given that courts are incredibly busy, this can take quite some time, so don’t be mislead by claims you read on websites stating cases are settled within a matter of weeks.

    Each case is different and will be treated as an individual occurrence rather than a type of claim that usually takes X amount of weeks.  Where plenty of witnesses come forward to point an accusing finger at the defendant – there’s little choice for the other party but to admit liability and settle out of court. An accident solicitor in Braintree or other specialist will advise you if you should challenge a defendant in court, if the defendant denies liability and tries to blame you for the accident.

    You must then decide, if you want a judge to award you compensation. There is no guarantee you’ll get the amount an accident solicitor in Braintree first advised you to settle for, but if you don’t ask, you don’t get as with most things in life.
