Firstly, it is important to discuss your circumstances with us.
Our personal injury team can assess your case and, if it’s viable and you wish to proceed further, we will then begin a more detailed investigation for you. This will involve gathering information and evidence, getting in touch with the insurance company of the person you hold responsible, and documenting the injuries and financial losses you have suffered.
An important part of this process is addressing your rehabilitation needs. Truth Legal works alongside medical agencies to provide quick access, wherever possible, to treatment such as physiotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
Alongside this, our personal injury lawyers will be looking to obtain an admission of fault from those whom you hold responsible. If fault is admitted, it may mean that we can secure early instalments of compensation (called interim payments) to help you financially in the aftermath of the accident.
Most personal injury claims go through a system called the Claims Portal, run by the Ministry of Justice. Higher value or more complicated claims, might be dealt with outside this procedure by your solicitors sending a Letter of Claim. To find out more about these two pathways, read our article here.
And finally, if you’re worried that your road traffic accident claim might end up in court, don’t be! The overwhelming majority of personal injury claims are resolved and settled before any court hearing is needed.
