    Will I have to go to court? I want to sue my former employer for the negligence that led to my back injury, but I don’t want to face him in court.

    We can’t promise that your case won’t end up in court, but the majority of personal injury claims are settled out of court, so it is possible that yours will be too. If you do have to go to court, please note that compensation claims are civil matters, so your hearing will be held in a small courtroom, and there won’t be a jury. Don’t be deterred from claiming by the reaction of your former employer, if you are suffering as a result of his negligence then you have every right to claim.

     

    Can I claim for mental illness? I don’t really want to but since the Stoke on Trent accident that triggered my depression and anxiety a couple of years ago I have been unable to work, and need the money.

    Yes you can claim for mental illness and you should feel no shame in doing so; mental illnesses can be life changing and can cause physical symptoms as well. Make sure you speak to your doctor and get the right help and support for your condition.

     

    Can I claim back the money I spent on private medical treatment?

    Yes absolutely, you can claim back any of costs arising from your Stoke on Trent accident. Make sure you get receipts, and keep hold of your bank statements.

     

    Should I use a ‘no win no fee’ lawyer?

    It is your decision, but using a lawyer who will work for you under a no win no fee contract means that you won’t have to find the money to pay your legal bills. Most injury claims are handled under no win no fee contracts. It is worth noting that if you do choose a lawyer who charges ongoing fees, you will not be able to get legal aid to help you.
