Are you considering making a claim for a personal injury? If so you may like to know what it’s like and what you need to do in order to be successful.
Assessing your claim
As an individual you will probably have a realistic idea of whether or not you are eligible for making a claim. You should have a fair idea of whether the accident was your fault and how badly it has affected your life, but that’s not the entire case. What matters is whether or not you can prove it.
The other side
The opposition will also be looking at the case and trying to decide what to do. If you’re claiming against a company or organisation the chances are that their legal teams will be looking at their own hand and trying to assess their chances of winning. They don’t want to go to court unless they really believe they are in the right, so their legal team will probably offer advice about what kind of a settlement they might offer.
This is intended to prevent the case going to court as this could involve extensive legal fees if they do. As such they’ll start with an offer which is probably lower than you might expect to receive, but one they hope is enough to persuade you to drop the case.
