An 'admission' in the context of a personal injury claim refers to a statement or acknowledgement made by the defendant (the person or organisation being sued) that they accept responsibility for the accident or event that caused the claimant' injuries.

The admission can include accepting that they were at fault for the accident or that they owe a duty of care to the claimant.

Admissions can be made in writing or verbally, and they can significantly strengthen the claimant's case.

If the defendant makes an admission, it means that they accept responsibility (liability) and the claimant's case would usually not need to go to court.

Securing an admission of liability will make the process of reaching a settlement quicker and easier.

Your personal injury solicitor will work to obtain an admission from the defendant, and they will advise you on the best way to proceed with your claim based on that admission.
