The exact time is impossible to predict. Depending on establishing liability, and the severity of injury, cases can last from a matter of months, to several years. In the cases that take several years, when liability has been admitted, we will apply for an interim payment of damages. This is an amount of damages paid before a final settlement and will help to ensure you do not suffer any unnecessary and undeserved hardships.
Your claim for personal injury will follow a pre-defined step-by-step process.

How will I fund my personal injury claim?
No Win, No Fee Solicitors in Rotherham
It is possible in most cases that your claim will be handled on a no win, no fee basis. In situations where this is possible, generally, an insurance policy will be taken out on your behalf and provided you comply with this policy you will be exposed to no financial risk.
If you are successful and win compensation, the defendant will usually pay most of your legal costs. The legal costs that are not paid by your opponent will be deducted from your total compensation.
If you are unsuccessful and do not win compensation, you would pay us nothing. We will not charge you and the insurance policy will pay for the defendants’ costs and your own disbursements.
Legal Expenses Insurance
Household insurance policies often contain an extent of legal cover that can cover a part, or all, of your costs associated with bringing a personal injury claim. You may also have legal expenses cover under your credit card policy.
Trade Union Membership
Trade Unions will often cover the legal expenses of their members in situations where they have been injured in an accident at work
