Stages of a personal injury case

Accident and injury procedures can take many forms, but the basic stages of a personal injury case usually remain constant. Sparta Legal’s personal injury roadmap provides a basic overview of the different stages of a typical personal injury case.

Step 1. Contact us

It is very important to contact Sparta Legal directly in order to register your case free of charge. This can be done by leaving your information on our website, calling us or emailing us. We will contact you as soon as possible to schedule an appointment in consultation at the office, at your home or digitally. All this is completely free of charge. 


Step 2. Meeting with a specialist

After an accident, it is important to discuss the specific circumstances of your case with an experienced specialist:

– The extent and severity of your injuries;

– Your medical costs;

– Any income you have to lose as a result of the accident;

– Your legal options;

– Other costs you (may) incur as a result of the accident.

Our team takes care of free, no-obligation consultation and evaluation of your case.

Step 3. Liability and damage overview

Based on your story and the above-mentioned information, the other party will be held liable by us. The insurer of the other party will make a decision on the acknowledgement of the liability. While they are in the process of doing so, we will already draw up a loss statement for you indicating all your suffered and yet to be suffered damage, such as injuries, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and future medical care.

Step 4. Gathering information and evidence

In order to be able to claim the maximum for you, we will collect as much information as possible about your accident and damages. This includes obtaining all information and documentation as a result of the incident:

– (police) reports from emergency services and the police;

– contact, insurance and vehicle information of all parties involved in the (car) accident, photos / videos of the accident site including any material damage and visible injuries;

– contact details of any witnesses who saw what happened or who may be useful in some other way;

– any reports to an employer (for construction accidents and work-related injuries);

– medical records, including medical bills and documentation of all your appointments;

– documentation of missed work / lost pay;

– insurance letters or communication with other parties;

– and much more.

Step 5. Mediation of your compensation

The first thing we arrange for you as soon as the insurer acknowledges liability is an advance payment on the compensation so that you can get your hands on part of the payment at an early stage. We will stay in close contact with the insurer and your medical practitioners/physiotherapist in order to be able to claim part of the compensation on your behalf. Naturally, we will keep you well informed. If you have reached a medically stable or healthy condition and the damage can be definitively determined, we will make every effort to claim the highest possible sum on your behalf.

Step 6. Agree or go to court

The insurer will not want to pay you the maximum directly, this has to be negotiated with them. That is why you choose Sparta Legal. We have all the legal knowledge and experience to maximise your reimbursement. The final proposed compensation will be discussed with you. We will also discuss with you whether there is more to your case. If you agree, the compensation will be transferred to you directly.

Do you not agree with the total compensation? Then we will take your case to court to claim higher compensation. In this way we will achieve for you what you are truly supposed to receive. Sparta Legal will always fight for your right.

Therefore Sparta Legal

For many, the legal playing field is unknown territory and thus offers the insurers and the other party the opportunity to pay you a much lower fee than you should actually receive. With our years of experience and many years of training, we know exactly how to play this game and are able to claim the maximum compensation for you. In the end, this will be considerably higher than what you could claim yourself.

Moreover, we relieve you of all the stress, paperwork and loss of time. Completely free of charge for you, as the other party’s insurer is obliged to pay our costs. Therefore, trust our expertise, trust Sparta Legal.
