At times, individuals seek the advice from a medical expert as well before contacting other parties. When the other party is contacted, if the defendant accepts the claim, your solicitor or lawyer will negotiate a payout for you. However, if the defendant disputes the claim, your case will go to court and a decision will be made there. The length of time this process takes can vary as every case is different.
