FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Liability, to put it simply, means someone is responsible legally for the circumstances surrounding an accident or incident. For example, if someone admits that the issue in question was their fault, they are in turn admitting liability. Alternatively, if they were to challenge such an outcome, they would be denying liability.
It is often mandatory to go to a medical. For the purposes of the case in hand, a medical professional needs to effectively measure your current physical state and overall health. This will also give you a chance to go over any previous injuries. Any evidence obtained from your medical may be vital in proving your claim and its ultimate success.
The time your claim takes can differ depending on the exact nature of said claim. One of our most common cases, falls and trips as a result of negligence in the work place, often progress quickly to a desirable end goal in the case that the business in question admits liability. However, if the business does not admit liability, this can obviously set us up for a longer case, due to the necessary court date that would follow. Regardless of these unavoidable variables, we always strive to help process your case as quickly and smoothly as possible.
If your case does go to court, your attendance is mandatory. Whilst we do strive to make sure that your case is concluded swiftly and to your satisfaction, complexities can arise (such as liability issues), which can then make court dates necessary.

Regardless of whether you have recovered from injuries suffered due to negligence, you may still be within your rights to make a claim – and it still has every chance of being successful. For this reason, it is necessary for a medical appointment in order for a professional to assess how the previous injury or injuries have affected your overall health or daily life. Long term effects of these injuries can be used as evidence in any case you may take forward.
We will work with you in order to book your medical appointment at a time and place that benefits you and your own personal circumstances. If you then require further appointments, we will continue this dialogue with yourself. We do suggest not changing an appointment date, unless it is completely unavoidable. Some medical professionals may have limited availability, so changing these appointment slots has the potential to delay your claim.
