How to Proceed the Personal Injury Claim

The personal injury lawyers review all medical evidence (usually notes from the GP and hospital) and give advice on what additional details should be collected. In a few cases, it is necessary to get a statement from a doctor who specializes in the applicable area.

Advancing the process

After forming a positive opinion on the merits of the claim, they write to the relevant person asking them to acknowledge responsibility for the damages. If liabilities are accepted then they can start negotiations on the worth of the compensation in financial terms.

If the responsible person does not accept the liability, this is when we will take legal case in your support. The process may be postponed at any time if the responsible party wants to agree on a payment.
