This personal injury glossary provides explanations in plain English of a number of technical terms you may encounter in the process of pursuing a personal injury claim.

Fast track - How a matter is dealt with and heard by court. If a personal injury claim is worth more than £1,000 but less than £25,000, a case will be handled by “fast track”. When a legal matter is assigned to fast track, a timetable of approximately 6 months is put in place for both the claimant and defendant to gather and exchange relevant evidence. A fast track trial in court is generally heard over one day as the details involved are not complex.

Fees - The sum of money paid for a legal service.

Funding - How a claim is paid for. Many people have legal cover in their home or car insurance that would provide funding for a claim. For those who do not, there are alternative methods of “funding”. See CFA and LEI.
