Will I have to go to court?
When you make a Personal Injury Claim, Hampson Hughes will always try to negotiate an agreeable settlement with both parties. We will make every effort to ensure that your case is brought to a timely and satisfactory conclusion. However, complex issues such as a denial of liability or a dispute over the value of the claim could mean that a court date becomes necessary.
Do not let your fears and concerns over court proceedings stop you from making a Personal Injury Claim. Very few Personal Injury claims in the UK go to court. In the event that your personal injury claim progresses to court, we will be with you every step of the way.
What happens next?
Once court proceedings have been issued, to prepare for court we will collect all evidence relating to your case. This could include, witness statements, medical expenses and medical reports. The court will then provide a deadline for when it needs the relevant documentation relating to your claim. We will issue the documents on your behalf and ensure that you understand the process.
We will arrange for you to be represented in Court either by a barrister or specialist solicitor to present the claim to the judge on your behalf. The case will only be in front of a judge and not a jury, making it less intimidating!
Even if a trial date has been set, your case may still settle out of court. It is easier and less costly for all involved if a settlement can be reached ahead of the trial date. If this happens, we will ensure that we negotiate a compensation package that you deserve, taking in to consideration your pain, future costs and out of pocket expenses occurred.
