Making a personal injury claim

For most personal injury cases, there is a time limit of three years. This is usually three years from the date of the accident. However, as this is often not clear cut, in cases of repetitive strain injury and such, you will have three years from the date of diagnosis.

Selecting the best No Win No Fee lawyer to represent you is crucial

Many personal injury solicitors are offering their services across the UK. While the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates solicitors, service levels can vary, so it is important to choose with care. After all, the legal professional you choose will have a huge impact on your recovery and life. Selecting a lawyer that matches your needs is a crucial first step.

Bedford Personal Injury Solicitors FAQs

When will I receive my first compensation offer?

This could come any time after negotiations begin, though it requires the defendant to admit liability beforehand.

How high will the opening offer be?

This depends on the injury and its circumstances. However, you shouldn’t expect the defendant to offer your maximum compensation target at this stage.

What makes a good compensation offer?

This would be an offer that manages to satisfy both parties in terms of what’s acceptable and what’s affordable.

How much should a defendant offer for the claimant to settle?

Around 80% of the claimant’s compensation target would make for an appropriate figure to settle upon.

Should I turn down the first offer?

We recommend that you do this because you’re highly likely to be receiving a larger second offer.

What happens if I turn down an offer?

That offer is then no longer on the table, so you can’t accept it at a later date.

What is a counter-offer?

This is when you suggest a figure that isn’t your target but that you would be happy to settle on.

Would the defendant offer you that figure?

If you can justify that amount for a settlement, they may offer you to close the claims process.
