If the injuries you have sustained can be valued at less than £1000 compensation, the Court will track the matter to the small claims procedure.
In these cases the court expects that you will be able to represent yourself and does not expect you will need legal representation. To assist you, the Court has developed a more informal small claims procedure. You can find out more at the Court Service website
Since the Court does not expect you will need legal representation, it is a general rule that your legal costs will not be met by the Defendant or the insurer even if your case is successful.
This means that we cannot offer our no win no fee service through Accinet® because our costs will not be paid by the Defendant or their insurers at the end of your successful case. It would be uneconomic for us to assist in such cases.
Therefore if you have suffered just some minor discomfort or a little bruising for 3 or 4 weeks, it is likely that your case will be tracked to the small claims procedure and we would not be able to assist you.
As with all things legal, there are a few exceptions. We may be able to assist you if you sustained an eye injury or scarring even if the pain did not last long.
