Claiming Compensation on behalf of Another Person
Are you acting on behalf of another person? Maybe you’re the parent of a baby who suffered a birth injury. Possibly the adult child of a parent hurt through care home negligence. It may be that you want to find out more about the claims process to help an injured friend.
Your next steps
Whatever the role, find out if a loved one can claim compensation for medical negligence, personal injury and more.
A person who is unable to submit a request for compensation themselves is a protected party. They’re usually:
- under the age of 18, or;
- lack the mental capacity to manage their legal or financial affairs.
In short, they need the help of a litigation friend – someone authorised by the court to:
- act on their behalf;
- pursue their legal rights and;
- represent their best interests to obtain compensation.
A litigation friend can be a:
- close friend, or;
- the family may prefer to appoint a professional, such as a solicitor.
The litigation friend process
The process of obtaining a court’s approval to serve as a litigation friend is quite simple. Accordingly, we can assist if you have any questions about how to do this.
There is only one main difference a regular claim and a litigation friend claim. Accordingly to law for litigation friends, a judge needs to approve:
- the amount of the award and;
- the management of the funds for the benefit of the claimant.
Claims can still settle out of court as well. But the Court’s final approval is necessary as an additional step to protect the best interests of the victim.
Settling a Compensation Claim out of Court
No one wants to see your claim litigated, but specialist solicitors we work with on injury claims can help. The registered office lawyers offices we work with are registered in England and Wales. Moreover, they’re authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
In short, courts can add up to an extra 12 months to the processing time of your application. In addition to this extra time, going to court is:
- expensive, and;
- can add additional stress to what may already be a difficult time for you.
It is always our goal to settle every claim out of court, too. But there may be occasions when it goes against your best interests to do so. For example, if the other party:
- doesn’t believe they are responsible (even partly) for your injury;
- disagrees with what we believe is an appropriate amount of compensation.
Our next steps
Our medical negligence solicitors in St Albans continue to pursue settlement out of court even facing a court date. We have a high success rate of achieving out of court settlements for our clients. Moreover, we’re optimistic about doing this for you as well. But if your claim goes to court, we’ll continue to support you to achieve the most positive outcome.
