Whenever you are involved in an accident for which somebody else was to blame, there is a small chance that any claim for compensation you are entitled to may be settled by a personal injury court. We understand that when you have been injured in an accident, the prospect of a personal injury court may be quite alarming, but there really is very little to be worried about. In any case, there are more immediate priorities.
Whatever type of accident you have been involved in your main priority should be to take care of your health. No matter if you believe that your injuries are slight. Sometimes injuries can be late in manifesting themselves, particularly where there has been a bang to the head or the potential exists for spinal injuries. Not only is it important for the sake of your health that you receive medical attention, but the record of your visit to the doctor´s surgery or hospital may be needed in a personal injury court if you are going to pursue a claim for compensation.
How do Personal Injury Courts work?
Should you subsequently make a claim for compensation, the only reasons that your case may have to go to a personal injury court to be settled is where the person or persons who were responsible for the injuries you suffered refuse to accept liability, or where the amount of compensation that has been offered to you is not a fair and adequate amount. Normally an agreement is reached in nine out of ten claims for compensation before it gets to a personal injury court, so the odds are in your favour that it will not happen.
To help ease any concerns you may have about personal injury courts, we have established a free advice telephone servicewhich you are welcome to call and speak with one of personal injury claims solicitors. Not only will they be able to offer clear and accurate advice, but have all attended a claim for compensation at a personal injury court and can put your mind to rest about the procedures that take place.

What can you expect?
When you call our free advice telephone service, you will be transferred to a solicitor familiar with your particular type of injury. They will listen while you explain to them the circumstances surrounding your accident, the injuries you sustained and the treatment you received.
Asking questions, they will try to determine if there is a case for a compensation claim which is worth your while to pursue. If they believe there is, and you wish to sue for compensation, they will explain the procedures involved, right up to the point where a personal injury court may be involved.
They will also explain how long they anticipate the case to last, if there are any costs involved along the way and, once the case is established a little more, they will be able to give you a general idea of how much you may receive in compensation, whether it goes to the personal injury court or not.
If you have not already visited a doctor, you should do so at your earliest convenience. Thereafter, you should give our free advice telephone service a call on 1-800 989 995 or complete your details in our call back form above – letting us know when would be a convenient time to phone – and one of our solicitors will give you a call back later on.
