    Is a personal injury claim worth pursuing?

    A common question people have when contemplating making a claim for personal injury compensation is whether it is financially worth pursuing. Assuming you have a right to make a claim, there are two aspects to this:

    • will you be awarded a sum of money large enough to justify your efforts (in time and emotionally) and;
    • will there be anything left for you after the lawyers and any Government refunds are paid?

    It is common for lawyers to offer an obligation free assessment to look at exactly this issue. The lawyers will take your instructions and gather information about the circumstances of the accident, including: your injury, cost of treatment, medical prognosis, and the impact of the injury on your ability to work. This information will help the lawyer assess the merits of your case and whether it is one worth pursuing. The lawyers will want to be reasonably confident that your case is worth pursuing before they offer you a no win no fee agreement/ arrangement. We recommend you take time to understand the lawyer’s fee structure and terms of their no win no fee arrangement.  

    After carefully assessing the circumstances of your accident and injury the lawyers will give you their opinion as to whether they think you have a claim worth pursuing. It is then up to you whether you proceed, possibly making a personal injury claim, or whether you seek a second opinion from another lawyer.
