WHAT TO DO AFTER AN ACCIDENT AT WAITROSE?
HOW DOES THE CLAIMS PROCESS WORK?
Once we have carried out an initial consultation, we will take care of the paperwork required.
A letter will be sent to you following an initial consultation with your solicitor. This will be a summary of the meeting you had and will confirm that they are happy to take on your case. It will highlight who will be your contact and estimate how long the process will take. The letter will also detail how you will be funding the case and an estimate of costs. If you need to provide any further information this will be included.
A letter will be sent to the defendant, providing details of the accident. The defendant has a fixed period to reply. In their reply, they must state if they are denying or accepting liability. If they do accept liability, your solicitor will endeavour to settle the case out of court.
AMOUNT OF COMPENSATION IN CLAIMS AGAINST WAITROSE
As all personal injury cases are unique, the amount of compensation awarded is different for every case. The amount awarded looks at general damages and special damages.
Pain and suffering is the main factor used to determine how much compensation.
This is usually determined by a medical examination. This creates a report that outlines the length of time the injuries will take to heal as well as their severity.
Your solicitor will take these details into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded. This will then be put forward to the opposing side and the judge.
Compensation takes into account financial losses you have suffered as a result of your injuries. Such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work. If you have had to pay for treatment or travel to treatment, compensation may also be able to cover this as well. Keep any receipts or other documents that help to outline the extent of your financial losses.
