Newtownabbey Personal Injury Lawyers FAQs
How Long Do I Have to Make a Claim?
For personal injuries, in most cases, you have three years from the date of your accident to claim compensation. If you have recently suffered a personal injury or an accident that wasn’t your fault, why delay? Contact us straight away and get your claim started. The sooner you make your claim, the sooner you can get your compensation!
How Long Does a Newtownabbey Personal Injury Claim Take?
It is impossible to give an exact figure of how long it will take to settle your claim completely.
We work on a wide variety of different types of personal injury claims but to give you a broad idea, a straightforward case may settle within approximately 3-8 months whereas cases that are more complex and may be disputed may take longer and could last over 12 months. However, our personal injury lawyers covering Newtownabbey will try to settle your case as soon as possible.
How Much Money Will I Get?
Because all cases are different, it is impossible to give you an exact amount of compensation for your injury. Whilst dealing with your case, if an offer of compensation is made then we will inform you straight away and advise you whether it is a good offer and whether in our expert opinion it is one that you should accept. Whilst there are no hard and fast rules as to the amount of compensation you should receive, there are previous cases we can look at to give us a general idea of what is a ‘fair’ idea of a settlement and work it from there. But our personal injury lawyers covering Newtownabbey will advise you on this.
When Will I Get My Money?
Once compensation has been agreed, you may expect that you will get your money immediately. Unfortunately, like much in the legal world, things are a little slower than this. From our experience, it takes six weeks for the money to land in your bank account. In some cases, we can arrange for interim payments if you urgently need to pay medical bills.
Can I Fast Track My Claim?
You can rest assured that we will do everything we can to deal with your claim as quickly as possible. You can help by ensuring that you send any paperwork we request back as soon as you can. Little things like this all add up to making your claim that little bit quicker.
Will I Have to Attend Court?
Many claims are settled without having to go to court. However, if your case does have to go to court, you can rest assured that you will have your specialist personal injury solicitor there by your side and they will explain everything that is happening to you so you have peace of mind throughout the court process.
What are the chances of an out-of-court settlement?
Around 95% of claims end up with a settlement before a trial if sufficiently strong evidence exists.
When do I receive my compensation?
You should receive your settlement within 28 days of the agreement.
