Regarding personal injury claims
Decisions quickly regarding personal injury claims are what everyone wants if they are seeking compensation for an accident that was not their fault.
Accident Advice Helpline (AAH) provides a 30-second test to see whether you are eligible for compensation, which you can find on the home page of our website.
- Did the accident happen in the last three years?
- Did you need medical treatment after the accident?
- Was the accident your fault?
If you can answer yes, yes, no to the questions above, then you will be able to proceed with a query regarding personal injury claims for compensation. These are the criteria that you must need to have a valid claim. The three-year rule is only flexible if you were a child at the time of the accident or you are suffering from an industrial disease, which can take decades to show any symptoms.
Court decisions regarding personal injury claims
Although you can see whether you are likely to have a case almost immediately, we cannot guarantee that the courts will act as quickly regarding personal injury claims. This is because each case is individual and treated on its own merits.
Today, many insurance companies are keen to settle out of court because they will save money on court courts. However, you may think their offer is too low and if they refuse to raise it, the case may then go to court so a judge can make a decision on the level of compensation.
In some cases, the defendant – the person or company that you are pursuing for compensation for causing the accident – may deny liability and fight the case through the courts.
So, you can see that it’s impossible to say just how long a case will take, and indeed how much you will receive in compensation and when the money will be paid out.
