Will my Military Personal Injury claim go to court?

About 95% of cases settle without having to attend court.

When we have concluded all steps to prepare your case including getting any witness statements, obtaining a medical report upon your injuries and getting evidence to support your financial losses, we will attempt to negotiate a settlement of a claim.

If liability for an accident is accepted then in accordance with the Court Rules, we must give the other party the opportunity to settle the claim before we begin Court proceedings.

If liablity is disputed or we are unable to negotiate a settlement, we may have to issue proceedings.

If that occurs the Court will control the rate at which your case progresses and the steps which must be taken, with the aim always being to proceed to Trail as soon as is practical.

We will use our every endeavour to bring your case to a rapid conclusion, although the timescale will vary depending upon the type of case and what is in dispute.

Just because proceedings are issued it will not automatically mean a case goes to Court. However if a Trial is necessary in the last resort you will have to attend Court to give your version of events or to give evidence upon your injuries.

If you have had an accident within the last 3 years that was not your fault and you suffered injury then please call us on our freephone 0800 1077 321 to speak to one of our personal injury claims specialists for free no obligation advice.
