So, you’ve suffered a personal injury. You’ve instructed your local personal injury solicitor in Preston, Lancaster or Garstang, but you and your personal injury solicitor have reached an impasse with the ‘at fault’ party: i.e the MDU in the case of a claim for medical negligence are not settling the matter, or in the case of an accident at work, the employer’s insurers are refusing to see sense, and make sensible offers in settlement of your claim. 
 
In this instance, as any personal injury solicitors in Preston worth their salt will tell you, it’s time to commence legal proceedings. 
You’ve been injured at work, injured in a road traffic accident, or bashed your head after tripping over a defect in the local high street. So what do you do? Well, before contacting your nearest personal injury solicitors, you attend A&E, your local Accident an Emergency Department, where, most of the time at least, you’ll be extremely well looked after, by everyone from the receptionist, to the triage nurse attending upon you. 
When liability is disputed, and the parties to a road traffic accident cannot agree who was at fault, then sometimes, your local personal injury solicitors will advise you to issue legal proceedings against the motorist you believe to be at fault. 
Ok, the answer to this is one isn’t simple. As your local personal injury solicitors will tell you, the ‘at fault’ party’s insurer do have a few tricks up their sleeve when it comes to settling a claim. 
 
For example, any personal injury firm laments about about certain insurer who used to accost their personal injury clients on their doorstep, and badger them into accepting a low settlement offer, subject to payment being made on the spot, and there being no fees payable to their 'lawyer'. Fortunately, those days are gone, and your local personal injury solicitors, MG Legal, will always advise our clients to wait for the opportune moment.. 
The Health and Safety Executive, HSE defines stress as ‘the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them’. 
In a world where social media filters are used on a daily basis to hide how we really look, and HD TV shows all our wrinkles and defects, many of us don’t feel too comfortable out there in the real world, and we decided to have a nip or a tuck, botox fillers, or even dental braces, to give us the perfect smile. 
In any sport, from boxing to ballet and beyond, there’s always the chance that any one of us, can, and will be injured. 
 
According to a recent survey, the most common sporting injuries are, in no particular order: shin splints, sciatica, pulled hamstring, torn cruciate ligament, concussion, and the good old-fashioned groin pull. And yet it may not always be the person partaking in the sport that gets injured, MG Legal, accident injury solicitors in Lancaster, have also successfully helped those just spectating, receive an award of compensation, too! 
Let’s tell it exactly as it is- representing yourself in court, or when drafting legal documentation, is not a good idea. The rules (Civil Procedure Rules 1998, as we are talking about road traffic accident solicitors, in this instance) are not ‘watered down; for the general public, and there is no special dispensation afforded by the courts to those injured in road traffic accidents who do not have the means to instruct a solicitor dealing in road traffic accidents. And yet, despite the obvious pressures put upon the court system (trust us when we say, it’s already busy, and complicated enough), and the lack of parity for those representing themselves, the Civil Liability Bill is coming to a legal system near you in April 2020. 
We’ve all heard it. Whether it’s down the local, or in some less highbrow magazine.. ‘some bloke from Timbuctoo received a trillion quid for his personal injury settlement, when he lost a fingernail at work’… 
 
But did he, and are these stories all part of the urban myths that have a habit of frequenting the quarters of the less-sober of us…? 
Much to the chagrin of those nasty Defendant lawyers, as of April 2013 Qualified one way costs shifting (QOCS) entered the legal arena, and applied its’ terms to the clients of accident injury solicitors, accident claim solicitors, road traffic accident solicitors, personal injury solicitors Preston, road accident solicitors, solicitors who deal with medical negligence and accident compensation solicitors. As a result of QOCS, clients who have suffered a personal injury, will not, unless specific circumstances apply, be ordered to pay the costs of the successful Defendant.
