What if personal injury end up at court and lost? What about costs with if it is like just claim cancelled by court but without fundamental dishonesty?

Ian Morris

It is quite unusual for a personal injury compensation to end up in court. Whilst it can happen, most cases are settled out of court with a claimant accepting a reasonable offer from a defendant or the claimant dropping the claim if the defendant can produce a strong defence.

Should a claim end up in court and then fail, the costs of the claim will be the defendants responsibility. However, on a No Win No Fee claim basis – such as that which is offered by Direct2Compensation and our specialist Solicitor partners, the claimant does not pay the costs themselves as relevant BTE (Before the Event) or ATE (After the Event) insurance cover will be in place to cover such an outcome.
