Pursuing a claim

Stephensons are specialists in pursuing civil claims for compensation against HM Courts and Tribunal Service.

This is an area that can often be particularly complex. In a lot of situations, the court and Tribunal Service are not liable, as they often have the benefit of being ‘immune’ from suit. However, there is still scope to take action against the court and Tribunal Service, particularly if they have breached your human rights.
