Many people are put off by a number of things when the idea of making a personal injury claim arises. Realistically, after an accident that could very well have been quite traumatic, most people just want to brush it under the carpet and move on without any unnecessary stress or hassle -which is completely understandable.
However, if you have been injured in an accident and you’re worrying about having to make an appearance in court in order to win your claim, you shouldn’t.
The vast majority of personal injury cases are settled outside of court. Remember – you’re not the only person who wants to avoid a court trial. Due to the costs and time taken in preparation for a trial, it’s more than likely that both you, the claimant, and the defendant, will want to make a settlement outside of court.
This compensation settlement will be calculated by your personal injury solicitor after taking all relevant factors into consideration. If the defendant does not want to accept this settlement amount, a negotiation period will follow.
The chances are; your personal injury solicitor and the defendant will come to an agreement on a settlement amount. If not, court proceedings can be necessary.
If your solicitor does advise you on taking the compensation claim to court and you confirm the decision, a strong case will be prepared for you and you will be supported every step of the way. But remember, a court trial is very unlikely.
