Here's an overview of what is typically involved when we assist with litigation, for a road traffic accident:

  1. Investigation: The first step in a road traffic accident litigation is to investigate the accident. This may involve gathering evidence such as witness statements, police reports, photographs, and medical records.

  2. Filing a claim: If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, you may file a claim against the responsible party. This typically involves filing a personal injury lawsuit with the court.

  3. Discovery: Once the lawsuit has been filed, both parties will engage in a process known as discovery. This involves exchanging information and evidence related to the case, such as medical records, witness statements, and other documents.

  4. Settlement negotiations: Before the case goes to trial, the parties may engage in settlement negotiations to try to resolve the case outside of court.

  5. Trial: If the case is not settled, it will proceed to trial. During the trial, both sides will present evidence and arguments to the judge or jury.

  6. Verdict and appeal: At the end of the trial, a verdict will be rendered. If one party is dissatisfied with the verdict, they may have the option to appeal the decision.

These are the basic steps involved in a litigation for a road traffic accident. The specifics of each case may vary depending on the circumstances and the parties involved.
