Making a Claim –
A Simple Process
Our commitment to you starts with making the compensation claims process simple and stress free. We provide experienced legal advice to our clients in a way they understand.
Claims for medical negligence and personal injury are often funded through a “No Win No Fee” arrangement, known as Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA).
Using our “No Win No Fee” service means that you can claim compensation with no or minimal financial risk and with the confidence that you have one of the best legal advisers in the country fighting your corner.
There are no up-front costs and we will take the financial risk on the very rare occasion a case as to be abandoned due to poor prospects. This means that you will not have to pay any legal fees to us if your case has less than 50% chance of succeeding and it has to be abandoned.
We consistently recover many times more compensation than our clients are offered by insurers.
‘No Win No Fee’ is also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) and this means we agree to work for you on the basis that we won’t charge any fees if the claim is unsuccessful or it has to be abandoned. We do this so that you have no risk to making a claim and it enables us to help you receive justice.
To protect your position on any adverse costs payable to the opponents, we can purchase an After The Event (ATE) insurance on your behalf to cover any legal costs should you not win the case. The ATE insurance will defer the premium to the conclusion of the claim and you will only pay the premium if you win your case. If you lose then the ATE insurance will pay all authorised disbursements on your behalf.
If you have an existing legal expenses insurance policy such as one included in your household insurance or car or any other insurance policy, then you must let us know as you will not need to purchase an ATE policy. Whatever your particular circumstances, we will advise you on how to protect yourself against any costs and how we will recover the best possible compensation amounts from the offending party.
If you don’t have a pre-existing legal expense policy to pursue a claim then you will need us to purchase an ATE insurance policy on your behalf otherwise you may end up having to pay the fees yourself. If you have a legal expense policy or an ATE policy then you won’t be liable for our costs in the rare event your case has to be abandoned due to poor prospects or lost at trial.
Because we only receive costs if we win it means we are all the more determined to make the claim a successful one and our track record of winning almost all of our claims over more than a decade, shows that we are a safe option for handling your compensation claim.
This means we work to get you the maximum possible compensation whereas some firms and your insurers will usually want to pay out as little as possible.
