    Looking for an accident solicitor in Temple Gate

    Temple Gate is a huge stone gate located in Paternoster Square, near to St Paul’s Cathedral. The gate used to be housed in an area called Temple Bar, which is home to the Royal Courts of Justice. The Royal Courts of Justice is a court building which houses the High Court of England and Wales. The High Court is organised into three main divisions: the Queen’s Bench Division, the Family Division and the Chancery Division. Of these three divisions, the Queen’s Bench Division deals with personal injury cases.

    Do all personal injury cases go through the High Court?

    When filing a 100% no win, no fee personal injury claims through Accident Advice Helpline, claimants should not worry about the prospect of having to go to court. Only a small number of personal injury cases actually go to trial – the vast majority are settled outside of the court with the help of an accident solicitor in Temple Gate. A case will only usually go to court if the guilty party disputes their liability or disagrees with the value of the proposed compensation settlement.

    What happens when an accident solicitor in Temple Gate is unable to prevent a case from going to court?

    In the event of an accident solicitor in Temple Gate being unable to prevent a case from going to court, the court must ensure the case is able to come to trial without undue delay.

    Once court proceedings have been served, the guilty party must file a defence before the court is able to allocate the claim to one of the following tracks:

    • Small claims track – this track handles claims where the damages settlement is unlikely to exceed £1,000.
    • Fast claims track – this track handles claims where damages settlement is likely to fall between £1,000 and £15,000.
    • Multi claims track – this track handles claims where the damages settlement is likely to fall between £15,000 and £50,000.
    • High Court claims track – this track handles claims where the damages settlement is likely to exceed £50,000.

    It is important for a claimant to realise that only very high value cases are heard in the High Court. Such cases require the expertise of an accident solicitor in Temple Gate, who will need to provide evidence to support the proposed compensation settlements.
