We all love the stories of David and Goliath, but the world of make believe and myth is one thing – in reality nobody wants to be David. However, if you’re looking for a personal injury lawyer in Beddgelert, then that’s the role you could end up playing if you’re not careful.
Fighting the big boys
The majority of personal injury claims are relatively clear cut. You can see who is to blame and who is liable for compensation. That is why the vast majority of claims we deal with are over within a few months and settled out of court.
From your perspective, that is very comforting as there are few forms to fill in and you probably won’t even have to appear in court. Our team will keep you in touch with everything that is going on and at the end of it – with luck we’ll present you with a cheque for your compensation.
However, what happens if the case is a bit more complicated and the other side decides to fight in the courts?
Some of the more serious cases can drag on for several years. For instance if you’ve suffered a brain injury then the case is likely to drag on as it’s not only a question of deciding on blame, but determining how much compensation you might be entitled to.
For a serious injury, compensation is calculated firstly by the impact it has had on your life, which is likely to be considerable and secondly, by the money it has cost you as a result of your injury. This will include loss of earnings – both those which have already occurred and those which could potentially occur long into the future. For this, the court will have to look at your career before the accident and assess your earning potential going forward.
That in itself will not be a straightforward task and could take some time, but the biggest problem could come in the form of what approach the other side decides to take. If you’re claiming against a company then there is a good chance that they have plenty of resources and a big legal team all set up to help fight you. You’ll therefore need a firm which has enough resources for a long drawn-out fight, and that can mean going with someone who has a national footprint.
