Appeal

An appeal is a legal process that allows a person, in the case of a personal injury claim the 'claimant', to challenge a decision made by a lower court or tribunal.

If a claimant is not satisfied with the outcome of their personal injury claim, they have the right to appeal that decision. This means that the case is reviewed by a higher court and the decision of the lower court is either upheld or overturned.

An appeal can be made on the grounds of errors of law or fact, or if new evidence has come to light which was not available at the time of the original court decision.

Your solicitor would advise you on whether or not you have grounds for an appeal, and to guide you through the process if you choose to proceed with an appeal.
