Coleford in Gloucestershire is a small market town near the Forest of Dean. It is a quiet, peaceful place where time can – if you let it – stand still. That can be a wonderful thing in most cases. But when it comes to personal injury claims, it can be frustrating. That’s not the fault of injury lawyers; it’s just the way things work.
Injury lawyers in Coleford, or anywhere in the UK, will work their hardest for you, but sometimes a case can still take longer than anyone might like. It is important to be patient – the more serious your injury is, the longer a settlement will take.
How long does a personal injury case take?
In all honesty it depends. Personal injury claims can be extremely complicated, and the more complex they are, the longer they will take to settle. Every injury is unique and every claim relating to that injury and that person is different.
What is the same, though, is the fact that your lawyer, whoever they are or wherever they are based, should be keeping you completely up to date with everything that is going on throughout the claim. And if you think that you’re not being told everything, don’t be afraid to ask them – if they are good lawyers they should be able to fill you in with no problems.
You will need a lawyer who contacts you as soon as they can when anything relating to your case happens, whether it is good or bad. As with any stressful situation, knowing all the facts can mean you worry less, which in turn will make you less ill. This should be a priority, and one that your lawyer should understand from the beginning. This is another reason for having a lawyer that you get on well with – you will need to be completely honest with them about your injury and how it is affecting you as they will need to know this in order to progress the case (and ensure you receive the right amount of money in any settlement).
