What Happens in a Personal Injury Trial

The idea of taking a personal injury claim to court can be daunting, but we've put together a video that tells you everything you need to know.

Suffering a personal injury in a road traffic accident is not as unusual as you may think - according to the YouGov “Personal Injury 2015” report, around a third of adults have fallen victim to just such an event.

Some of these injuries may be treatable or get better over time, but others can be permanent and even life-changing. Regardless of the severity of the injury, however, there is always the possibility of a court hearing to seek compensation for the harm that has been done.

If you've found yourself in this situation and the final court hearing is approaching, you might be nervous about the outcome, and unsure of what to expect on the day itself. Here at Law on the Web, we aim to help people clearly understand the law and what it involves.

That’s why we have created a video in partnership with our sister company DAS Law, showing an example of a final court hearing. If you're worried about issues such as court procedures, what will happen when you attend, and how much preparation you need to do, our video could help to clear up your doubts.

The video also addresses common questions like:

  • Do all cases proceed to a court hearing?
  • Will I have to give evidence?
  • How is the level of compensation decided?

The video does not depict an actual court case, but it is based on real court procedures and will help you to get an idea of what to expect.
