Name Witheld

Friendly helpful service at a time of deep distress

Mrs. M.H

Just to thank you for all your help, kindness and support these last couple of years. Just talking to you sometimes when I felt like giving up got me through. You don't know much we appreciated it. Just to feel secure now if we need anything is a wonderful feeling. We thank you once again

Name Witheld

I am highly delighted with both the service and the outcome of my claim. The kindness, understanding and support during what has been a very traumatic time has been second to none. Nothing has been too much trouble and, although I hope I will not need to use your services again, I would not hesitate to, and highly recommend your services. With many thanks

How much does it cost you to claim?

There are a number of ways in which a claimant can proceed with a claim.

Private Client Agreement

An arrangement whereby fees are charged according to the time spent by a Solicitor on the case. If the claim succeeds the claimant would normally obtain an Order for Costs against their opponent. Should the claim fail the claimant would be faced with a bill from their Solicitor. For this type of arrangement, the Solicitor would normally expect the claimant to make payments on account, as the case proceeds.

Conditional Fee Agreement

More commonly known as NO WIN – NO FEE. Introduced by the Government in 1995 this type of agreement is rapidly becoming the most popular method of funding. If a claim is successful the opponent pays basic costs together with disbursements. The claimant pays the success fee which is capped at 25% of compensation received. Should a claim be unsuccessful, as a general rule, the claimant pays no costs to their Solicitor or to their opponent but would be liable for any disbursements the Solicitor had incurred on their behalf, e.g. medical reports, engineering reports, court fees etc. Insurance may be available to cover this liability.

Legal Aid

Legal Aid is no longer available to pursue these types of cases, having been withdrawn by the Government in March 2000.
