Burton Person Injury Claims Process

It’s very rare that a personal injury claim will ever see the inside of a courtroom. The vast majority of cases will be settled out of court. In the rare event that your case does go to trial, then we have a number of experienced personal injury lawyers on our panel that we can assign to you.

This isn’t to say that a lawyer won’t be assisting you every step of the way, because they will. From writing your letter of intent to the defendant, all the way to helping you gather evidence and negotiate your settlement fee – you won’t be doing it alone.

A very key stage will be an independent medical assessment. this will need to be carried out to help come up with a suitable level of compensation to account for your injuries. We work with a network of medical professionals up and down the country, and we can arrange this assessment at a location that suits you the best.
