It is quite rare for personal injury cases to go to court. The legal system uses a very established process to negotiate compensation and legal costs on these types of cases without the oversight of a judge. However, there are some more complex cases which must go to court, particularly those involving injured children or serious injury. You must start legal proceedings in any event within 3 years of sustaining a personal injury, so it is always advisable to speak to a legal advisor as early as possible.
Claims are often complex and involve detailed negotiations on liability and the value of your claim, so seeking professional legal representation on a personal injury case is recommended. The insurers who deal with these claims are very familiar with the legal system and are adept at handling such cases – sometimes at the expense of the injured party. Using a firm of solicitors who has expertise in personal injury claims is a good way to ensure that your interests are fully protected throughout the process and that you will receive the fairest settlement possible.
The process for assessing the value of a personal injury is well established within the legal industry, but it can be very difficult for legal experts to provide an accurate estimate without investigating the claim in detail. A fractured vertebra to the neck is likely to be valued very differently, for example, to a soft tissue whiplash injury. How much compensation you can claim will depend on many different variables, such as the type of injury, the level of pain and suffering, how long it takes you to recover from the effects of the injury and the impact this has had on your life. Once your legal expert has been able to evaluate any adequate medical evidence you have, they should then be able to give you an idea of how much compensation may be payable to you.
“No win no fee” representation came into place in 2000 to replace legal aid, which was abolished for personal injury cases. A “No win No fee” agreement is an arrangement whereby the legal expert you have instructed handles your claim without receiving payment for their work unless your claim is actually successful. If the case is successful, the legal expert is paid in part from the other party or their insurers, with a further agreed amount to be paid from your compensation award – but this latter portion is limited to 25% of your compensation for your injury and out of pocket expenses. If the case is not successful, the legal expert doesn’t charge at all. A “No win no fee” arrangement of this type may also be referred to as a “Conditional Fee Agreement” or CFA.
In general, most personal injury claims have a time limit of 3 years. This means that the court proceedings must be issued within 3 years of the injury occurring, or you first being aware that you suffered an injury. If the person injured is under the age of 18 at the time of injury, the 3-year time limit does not come into place until after they turn 18. In some cases, this can be extended, but it is always best to speak to a legal expert as soon as possible, to get the best advice possible from the outset.
If you’re thinking of making a personal injury claim, get in touch with us to start the process. We will put you in touch with a firm of solicitors who will guide you through the whole process. As there are strict time limits in place and you must start legal proceedings in any event within 3 years of sustaining a personal injury, it is always advisable to speak to a legal advisor as early as possible.

Unfortunately, there are occasions when you might not know the details of the other drivers involved in the accident, for example ‘hit and run’, untraced, uninsured or foreign drivers. We have a specialist team of legal experts who will investigate these to try and identify the driver, but if they cannot be found you can still claim under the Motor Insurers’ Bureau scheme (MIB). Let us know as many details as you can, and we’ll take it from there.
