What happens next?

Next steps

Following your consultation and discussions with us it should be simple for us to make a decision regarding your claim. In order for us to do this, we will ask you some questions about the details relating to your specific accident or injury and the resulting consequences.

In the event that we agree that you have grounds for a claim, we’ll assign a specialist solicitor straightaway to move your claim forward quickly and efficiently. Whatever the circumstances, the solicitor will work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis – so whatever happens ultimately, you won’t be out of pocket.

A ‘Letter of Claim’ will be drawn up based on the above and sent to the particular defendant that you are choosing to make the claim against. This letter will contain details of your proposal to claim compensation from them for the accident and the injury that you feel they were responsible for.

In the interest of collating adequate and comprehensive evidence, the solicitor may then instruct a medical professional to formally assess your injuries and prepare a Schedule of Losses to account for any subsequent financial shortfall that you wish to claim for. The defendant will then be asked to pay it.

Depending upon the defendant’s response, the claim may then proceed in a number of ways towards final resolution.

Resolving the Claim

Your claim against the defendant will be resolved in one of four ways:

1. Claim accepted

  • Defendant accepts responsibility
  • Solicitor negotiates a fair compensation settlement
  • You receive this as a final payment, plus solicitor costs

2. Claim Disputed

  • Defendant disputes your claim
  • Negotiation takes place
  • Either a) a mutual settlement is agreed or b) the claim goes to court and an independent decision is made by the court

3. Case Won

  • Court decides you are entitled to compensation
  • Defendant is instructed to pay the amount agreed by Court

4. Case Lost

  • Court decides you have no grounds for compensation
  • You are not paid anything
  • You do not have to pay anything is a trading name of UClaim Consumer Claims LLP, registered in England and Wales, company registration number OC339662.
