Unfortunately there is very little we can do to help in the early stages of a claim and it is often the case that the injured party will need to rely on state benefits or borrowing.

We are, in some cases, able to negotiate interim payments but these are difficult to get immediately. These can sometimes be negotiated a few weeks or months into a case when a defendant has accepted liability – but independent medical evidence will usually be required.

If a case is defended then there are provisions in the Civil Procedure Rules that allow an application to the Court but we must establish that your case is likely to be won and also that the defendant is insured against loss.
