Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Could you please explain your situation a little more?
Have Solicitors contacted you?
I see. Do you know what the injury is and prognosis?
Ok - do you dispute that you were negligent?
Ok - you have 2 choices:
1) Admit and pay out. A 4 month injury would probably be around £3000 plus Solicitor costs which will be limited to about £1000
2) Dispute it. If you do the matter is likely to go to Court. You will then have to instruct a Solicitor to deal with the claim for you. You will have to pay for representation for this matter. If you win then you may be able to recover the costs you have to pay for representation.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Does that clarify?
Yes the lawyer should. But make sure you follow up everything in writing to keep a record.
Does that help?
Then you need to say you do not have them.
By the sounds of it you would be better of settling the case. If it went to Court and you had very little in terms of records, this would not assist you.
Is there anything else you would like to ask me today?
No, if you look on Amazon for the Judicial College Guideline on Personal Injury claims (13th Edition) there are brackets for injuries. These set out guidelines. So it will fall into a bracket.
You may wish to get this for £20 so you can see what you reasonably might have to pay
Yes it is.
Pre action protocol is the period you are in now, notified of a claim.
Sadly I cant recommend anyone but you can find a local personal injury Solicitor here:
Get the book first of all and satisfy yourself it is within that bracket.
Then it just comes down to negotiationDoes that clarify?
Yes the lawyer will, they are instructed.
Just ask what they are expecting - yes.
But make sure you get the book first.
