Pilot opportunity: digital part 7 Personal Injury Proceedings

21st April 2020

HMCTS are expanding our pilot digital service that allows you to issue Part 7 personal injury proceedings online.

This service operates under existing Practice Direction PD51S.  It is an alternative to posting a completed paper N1 claim form to CCMCC.  It allows you to:

  • Issue Part 7 proceedings in the County Court for a specified or unspecified sum of money, such as a personal injury claim;
  • Instantly calculate and pay the issue fee using fee account;
  • Download the sealed claim form to serve on the defendant yourself.

The pilot was already underway, but we’re making it available to more people as part of our response to the Coronavirus outbreak.

To sign up, send an e-mail to onlinecivilmoneyclaims@justice.gov.uk and include the e-mail addresses of up to ten members of your firm who would like access. We’re still testing the service, so need to manage the total number of users and anticipate that this will allow all firms to have some access.

We aim to reply within 24 hours with more information.
