All legal fees are covered
Pursuing an accident claim can be very stressful. The last thing that you need to worry about is how to pay for legal support to do this.
- You will receive 100% of your compensation in most cases if the claim is successful *
- As part of the independent initial advice you receive you will be advised in your best interests on the most suitable way to fund your claim and whether it is likely to be successful or not
*Subject to any deduction for contributory negligence and to complying with the terms of a “No Win No Fee” arrangement and funding arrangements agreed with your appointed solicitor
We believe that everyone, whatever their situation, should have access to the right legal support. That is why we ensure that the costs of pursuing your claim are covered, whether it is successful or not:
- Our service offers free advice on your injury and helps establish whether you have a valid claim as quickly as possible. We will advise and help you gather all of the necessary information to substantiate your claim
- If we think you have a good claim we will offer you a conditional fee agreement “CFA” (unless you have legal expenses insurance cover which applies). A CFA will cover your legal fees whether you are successful or not, so you do not need to worry. This will be explained to you fully. Fees are incurred as we build up the case against the party at fault, including accident reports, medical report expenses, court fees and our own legal fees for work done on your case. Should your claim be successful, the legal fees incurred on your behalf will be payable by the insurer of the person at fault
You will not have to pay the legal fees associated with pursuing your claim unless you fail to cooperate with your claim so we cannot successfully pursue the claim and recover the costs or if you are fraudulent in the presentation of your claim or injuries and we cannot therefore recover the costs from the third party.
