I’ve been injured in an accident and want to make a claim for compensation – will I have to pay

Solicitors in London

News article published on: 24th June 2014

The vast majority of our personal injury cases are funded by ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreements. These mean that if you do not win your case, you will not have to pay your legal fees. If you win your case, our legal fees are recovered from the other side’s insurance company.

For a small minority of cases there is no insurance company to claim legal costs from.

These cases are primarily Criminal Injury Compensation cases, and hit and run road traffic accidents which are dealt with by the Motor Insurer’s Bureau. As there is not an insurer to claim our legal fees from in these situations we would ask you for a percentage of your compensation to cover our costs if you win your case. This percentage is fixed at the start of your case and is generally 25% or less. If you lose the case you would not have to pay us anything.
