The process of a Public Liability case

Every Public Liability case is different. It could take 12 months, 3 years, or longer - depending on the extent and nature of your injuries. How quickly the other party or its insurer responds as well as their attitude to your claim also have an impact on the timeline of your case.

Our team have over 60 years' combined experience in fighting cases like yours and winning. Not only that, our experience means that we've taken the process of a public liability case and honed it to a fine art. So when you work with us - you'll always be informed, you'll always know what to do next, and you'll always have someone to speak to.

If your case goes to court

Remember, only a very small percentage of cases run to trial. In fact, we settle 95% of our cases outside of court. If this does happen however, Slater and Gordon will prepare your case and ensure you are well informed of:

  • relevant court processes
  • duration of legal proceedings
  • how to prepare to give evidence
  • what to expect during cross examination
  • legal costs implications

Preparation will also involve engaging a barrister to represent you at court as well as arranging the attendance of any witnesses. The barristers that we engage also operate on a No Win No Fee basis.

In some circumstances if you are unsuccessful in your court case you may have the right to appeal the decision to a higher court. Your lawyer will be able to advise you about this.
