Court Hearing

The court will either list your case for a final hearing at the same time as the timetable or provide a suggested window for when the hearing can take place. Your lawyer will contact you about this to check whether you are able to attend the hearing or your availability within that window.

It may not be necessary for you to attend the final hearing, if it is only the value of your claim that is disputed.  In this case, the court will usually assess your claim based on the evidence they have been provided with by both sides and your interests will be represented by either your lawyer or a barrister.  

Naturally, should you need to attend court in person, your lawyer will ensure that you are well prepared and briefed on the run up to your hearing.

Your hearing will determine the outcome of your case and bring it to what will hopefully be a positive conclusion.

There are two types of Personal Injury cases, as follows:

Generally these are cases where your compensation award is likely to be less than £25,000 and the injury has occurred in England and Wales.

Generally, these are cases that either; i. have occurred abroad. ii. Are likely to provide you with compensation in excess of £25,000 or iii. Have left you with life-changing injuries.
