There is no one size fits all when it comes to your compensation. Each case that our personal injury lawyers work with is different, which makes it difficult for us to say how long your compensation claim might take to be resolved. We evaluate each on a case by case bases which means that we cannot give you an exact timeframe for your claim.
I need to settle my claim ASAP because I’m struggling financially
The personal injury lawyers assigned to our panel, understand how anxious you may be to settle matters quickly. Because of this, we and our lawyers make every effort to resolve claims as swiftly as possible. A simple, uncomplicated compensation claim such as claims for whiplash injuries could be resolved within one year from when the claim started. However, for complex cases and serious injury claims, the process can take much longer.
What if my claim is complicated?
If the injuries you suffered are more severe or ongoing such as complex medical negligence compensation claims, the process will most likely take longer.
We act in the best interests of our clients at all times, we will always take the time to build a solid case, as rushed claims generally result in poor compensation payouts.
To make a successful claim we will need to collect statements from witnesses and medical professionals. This can prolong the process, however, the stronger your case is, the more chance it has of being successful.
If my claim is complex and I lose will I need to pay towards legal fees?
Your lawyer can only charge you for the work they have done, if your case is complex it doesn’t necessarily mean that you will need to pay more in costs.
Because of this, it makes no difference how long it takes to work on your claim. If your claim happens to be unsuccessful you will not be required to pay any legal fees, regardless of how long your case has taken for them to process.
