Serious Injury Interim Payments allow you to receive part of your compensation settlement before the final judgement is reached. For further details call our Serious Injury Solicitors on 0800 916 9046 or contact us online and we will call you.
Interim payments are only available when liability has been admitted by the other side, but the money can pay for private medical treatments, if required, rehabilitation support and equipment, adapted accommodation, loss of earnings and to set up a care regime. From our own experiences we know that interim payments also help to maximise recovery and to improve quality of life.
Slater and Gordon can provide immediate legal representation and rehabilitation support anywhere in the UK from our offices in London, Manchester, Watford, Liverpool, Chester, Birmingham, Sheffield, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Cambridge, Milton Keynes, Preston, Wakefield and Wrexham.
How Do Interim Payments Work?
You can only request interim payments if the defendant admits that they were responsible for the accident which caused the serious injuries. The Court can also order an interim payment to be made if certain criteria are met, after the case has started. Interim payments can continue throughout the course of a Serious Injury compensation claim.
How Much Can I Claim & How Often?
The amount of interim payments you receive depends on your particular case, but it will not be more than ‘a reasonable proportion’ of the overall amount of compensation that is likely to be paid. There is no restriction on the number of applications for an interim payment you can make; but the total must be within the ‘reasonable proportion’ rule.
What About the Final Amount of Compensation?
When your final award of compensation is made, the interim payments will be have been deducted from the total amount of compensation paid.
