    Lawsuit Injured Settlement in Birmingham

    Taking out  a lawsuit against someone is not something that should be undertaken lightly. It involves the employment of a suitably qualified solicitor and court costs. It is something that you should only consider if you have enough evidence to prove to the court that you are in the right and that the person you are claiming against is in the wrong.

    The end result of any lawsuit is called a settlement. A settlement comes in two forms: it can be a figure mutually decided by the solicitors involved in the case and with the agreement of both parties, or it can be decided by the judge presiding in the case. If you have been seeking a lawsuit injured settlement in Birmingham following a personal injury then you will have had discussions with your solicitor as to the potential payout you could receive.

    Lawsuit injured settlement in Birmingham – The offer

    When pursuing your lawsuit injured settlement in Birmingham, or in any other part of the country, you will be presented at some point with a set of figures to consider. It is your personal injury lawyer’s job to argue the point with the defendant’s solicitors, but you will have to decide whether or not you want to accept the sum on offer. Your solicitor will advise you as to the current payment scales for your type of injury. He will also advise you as to what other reimbursements have been included on the figure. If you reject the offer then the solicitor will go back to the other party and discuss it with them. This process can be repeated several times until either a decision is made or the case goes to the court for a judge to rule on.

    The court case

    If the lawsuit injured settlement in Birmingham needs the intervention of a judge then your solicitor may well ask you to attend the court. He will obviously do all the talking but it is better if you are there to hear the judge’s decision. The judge may feel that the payment previously offered was sufficient so don’t think that you will automatically get more by going into court. Remember that court cases mean court costs, and that even if you win the case you will be expected to cover twenty five per cent of the court costs.

    It all sounds complicated

    No legal process is straightforward, at least not to the layman. Personal injury claims are in fact quite straightforward and the United Kingdom legal system sets out a clear set of conditions in which the claim can be made in the first place.
