What can you expect
Your first meeting is free and we use it as a means to obtain full details of the case from you in order to give you clear advice as to whether or not you should pursue your claim further. If we feel you have reasonable prospects of success then we will clearly advise you of this and explore the funding options.
If you wish to go ahead, we will advise you of the next step to take:-
- We investigate your claim in detail and consider with you at all stages whether or not the claim continues to have good prospects of success.
- We guide you through the legal process, obtaining all the necessary evidence, including medical evidence. We consult with you at all stages.
- If the claim continues to have good prospects of success, we achieve the best settlement possible.
- If we cannot agree a settlement of your claim, then, provided the claim continues to have good prospects of success, and funding is in place, then we will commence Court proceedings for you. Often, the claim settles at that stage but if it is not capable of settlement, then at the end of the case the Judge will make a decision on your claim in Court.
