Pembrokeshire Personal Injury No Win No Fee
What is a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury claim is a formal legal process that deals with non-fault incidents where a person is physically or psychologically injured or ill as a direct result of the negligence of another party. The injured party typically seeks compensation from the defendant, who they believed is liable for the incident and injury.

How Long Do Personal Injury Claims Take?
The amount of time a claim takes to settle depends primarily on the complexity of the case itself – for example, a complex clinical negligence case could take over two years, whereas a clear-cut road traffic collision could take just a matter of weeks to be settled.
If the liability is clear and whether the defendant admits liability or not also has a bearing on how long a claim lasts.
Road traffic claims are estimated to last just four to nine months on average, whereas industrial disease claims can take 12 to 18 months to be settled. It’s not uncommon for clinical negligence claims to last up to 36 months, so it can be a very long process but the outcome is often a relief for our clients.
Keep in mind that these are estimates only, and that a number of factors mean that the timescale of a personal injury claim can vary significantly with each case.
No matter how long it takes, our personal injury lawyers at Accident Line Direct will work hard to get the right amount of compensation for you and they’ll do this as efficiently as possible.
Do Personal Injury Claims go to Court?
In most cases, claims are settled among our No Win No Fee solicitors and the third-party insurer as long as all parties are cooperative.
If a settlement can’t be agreed with the insurer, or if they fail to respond to the claim at all, personal injury cases can then go to court.
In some more complex cases, where perhaps there has been a fatality or there is a significant sum of money being claimed for following a severe injury, a court hearing is sometimes required. However, it is unlikely that you will have to attend court yourself.
Despite court being a possibility for more serious cases, an estimated 95% of personal injury claims are settled outside the courtroom meaning that the likelihood of you having to go to court is low.
How much is your claim worth?
The amount of compensation you receive from a personal injury claim can range anywhere between £100 and over £100,000, depending on the severity of the injury and its implications on your life.
It’s difficult to give you a specific answer without knowing anything about the circumstances of your injury, but our personal injury compensation pay-out guide will help you gauge an idea of the amount your claim is worth. Remember that these are just guidelines, and there is always the possibility that some payouts may fall outside of these brackets, depending on the case.
