Directions Questionnaires in personal injury or medical negligence claims

After court proceedings have been served and the Defendant has filed their Defence to the claim, the Court will notify the parties of a date by which they must complete a court document called a directions questionnaire. A directions questionnaire can be found at the following link: http://formfinder.hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/n181-eng.pdf

The Claimant and Defendant Solicitors will usually suggest their preferred timetable to the court within their directions questionnaire. This timetable is known as directions. Sometimes the solicitors agree the timetable between themselves. However, it is often the case that the parties may have differing views on how the claim should be timetabled by the court.

In the directions questionnaire, the Claimant and Defendant Solicitors will advise the court about the witnesses they intend to rely on, what medical reports they consider are required, how many days they consider the trial will last and any other matters they consider the court should be aware of when ordering the timetable of the claim.

In addition, the Claimant and Defendant Solicitors are required to notify the court whether their client wishes to consider settlement of the claim at that stage.

Ethically driven

Truth Legal was founded on the idea of putting ethics at the centre of legal services. 

Ethical working is at our core: in treating people fairly, being open and honest, and taking social responsibility. We sponsor a large section of woodland near Harrogate, planting a tree for every one of the clients we represent.

Real lawyers, real people

We believe a good lawyer shouldn’t just offer technical expertise, but a real understanding of what you’re going through and how best to help you. 

Above all, our team are dedicated to their clients – whether that is guiding them through legal complexities, securing compensation, or simply fighting for what’s right.

We won’t blind you with jargon – we give advice clearly. And when technical terms can’t be avoided we explain them in full.
