Funding your personal injury claim
We understand that you may be worried about how you are going to fund your claim.
This is especially so if you are unable to work as a result of your accident and are therefore on a reduced income.
We offer a free, no obligation initial interview so that we can discuss your claim with you in detail. It is then up to you how you wish to proceed. There are two main ways that a personal injury claim can be funded;
- Conditional Fee Agreement
- Legal Expenses Insurance
Conditional Fee Agreement
This is also known as a no-win, no-fee agreement. After we have reviewed your claim and as long as we believe that it enjoys reasonable prospects of success, we may agree to act for you under the terms of a conditional fee agreement.
This means that even if your claim is unsuccessful, then ordinarily you will not have to pay our legal costs in representing you under a conditional fee agreement.
Legal Expenses Insurance
Legal expenses insurance is an optional extra attached to various types of insurance policies including, but not limited to, motor, buildings and contents, and credit card insurance policies. Some insurance companies refer to this type of insurance as family legal protection. Another name for this is Before the Event Legal Expenses Insurance.
At our initial meeting, we will ask you to bring along any insurance policies that you have so we can check whether or not you have legal expenses insurance.
Whichever funding option that we recommend, we guarantee that there are no up-front fees to pay, no hidden costs and ordinarily, you will not have to pay our legal costs if your claim is unsuccessful.
