Compensation is changing

Most people are aware that if they suffer injury because of someone else`s fault they can claim compensation. Years ago, the process of claiming compensation was a quiet, boring industry that did not attract very much attention from the media or the Government. However, following the virtual abolition of legal aid and the introduction of a “no win-no fee” system a new and somewhat less restrained market opened up. Very soon you could not switch on your radio or TV without someone offering to take your case on a no win no fee contract.

Mediation in personal injury claims

Many people may think that once a claim is made, either it can only be settled by the parties’ legal representatives or the claim has to go to Court and be decided upon by a Judge. If a case does go trial, this will often be several years after the accident. Clearly, this can be a long and stressful time for clients. Quite often, no agreement can be reached between the parties’ legal representatives. In such circumstances, going all the way to trial is not the only option.
