Pre-action protocol

The pre-action protocol is a prescribed set of standards that all parties in a personal injury claim must follow before the claim can go to court.  The protocol sets out a mandatory process which encourages the early sharing of information and alternative ways to settle the matter without going to court.

The pre-action protocol is followed with most personal in jury claims with the exception of clinical negligence, industrial disease and other disease related claims and low value road traffic accident claims.
