Accident Claims Legal Costs

There are three main ways to fund an accident or injury claim. Your solicitor will provide you with comprehensive advice on which of those options are available to you before taking on your case.

No win, no fee

We have a “no win, no fee” policy for all claims we take on. If your claim is unsuccessful, assuming that you stick to your obligations under our ‘conditional fee’ agreement, you will not have to pay a penny.

Throughout the life of your claim, there will be nothing to pay if you work with us to progress your claim. We will fund all of the upfront costs, including court fees, fees for obtaining documents and other expenses.

If you are successful, the defendant will have to pay a contribution towards your legal costs (our fees for acting for you). We are allowed to charge a percentage success fee or bonus payment for the risk that we take in not getting paid if you lose your case, and to charge you for any fees not recovered from the defendant if you win. However, we guarantee if we take on your case and you stick by your obligations under our agreement, the maximum deduction from your compensation will be 20% including VAT, all unrecovered costs and expenses and our success fee. This means we guarantee you at least 80% of your compensation.

You may already have an insurance policy to pay the legal fees associated with making a claim, perhaps with your home insurance or as a benefit of credit card membership. You are not obliged to accept the law firm recommended by your insurer, as they may not be specialists in this area.

Private paying

For clients with no insurance, who do not qualify for legal aid and who do not wish to enter into a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement, we can act on a private paying basis.
