How the compensation process works
Read on to find out how simple and stress-free it is to make a compensation claim with the help of the very best legal advice in Dalton-in-Furness, only available at top UK law firm, Accident Advice Helpline.
Is it all about going to court?
No, not necessarily and we understand why this is such a concern to so many people. Appearing in court, even as a witness in your own case, is a traumatic prospect for some people.
However, as your own legal advice in Dalton-in-Furness will tell you, the prospect of your case ending in the court system is minimal. The factors of what constitute an eligible case for compensation have been clearly written in British law for many years.
These factors are what we, at Accident Advice Helpline, base our initial assessment on. Should these factors not be met, then we will be unable to proceed with your case, although other law firms may be willing to do so.

Once your personal injury solicitor can prove to the ‘other side’ that you have a case for compensation and they ARE liable for your injury or injuries, they are unlikely to want to the case to end up in court.
Bad press and publicity is never welcome by any company or business, certainly not in cases where someone has been hurt and that they are clearly at fault.
Hence, once liability if proven, the ‘other side’ are more likely to offer a settlement offer or figure for your compensation claim.
It may be that they offer the figure that you, through your personal injury solicitor, you have asked for; this will include a portion of the payment for the actual injury or injuries, as well as any additional expenses you feel you have had to make as a direct result of the accident.
Or, you may find that this figure is lower than what you are asking for. The great thing about making your claim through Accident Advice Helpline is that YOU remain firmly in the driving seat of your compensation case.
If you decide to accept, that is your decision alone.
However, you may feel that the initial settlement offer is rather derisory and mean. You can instruct your injury solicitor to act further on your behalf, and they will give you the very best advice and options in what you can now do with your claim.
We work hard on your behalf right from the very first moment we take on your case, to the moment your receive your compensation cheque.
