Q3. Who decides if someone gets compensation for a personal injury?

A3. If your case goes to court then it will be decided upon there. This occurs in cases with many complex issues or where an agreement cannot be reached regarding liability.

But many compensation claims are settled out of court which means that an agreement has been reached between your solicitor and the guilty party’s solicitor as to the issue of liability.

Your solicitor will enter into negotiations with the other solicitor about the amount of compensation you will receive.
