If you have suffered injury as a result of a car accident, bicycle accident or at the workplace, we will work tirelessly for you to put things right.
You do not have to worry about legal fees because we help most clients on a ‘no foal, no fee’ basis, which means our fees are covered by the other side at the end of your case.
That is why do our very best to ensure a successful outcome for you. The types of cases we run on behalf of plaintiffs include the following:
Road traffic accidents
Care Home injuries
Head trauma compensation claims
Pharmaceutical, medical device, and product manufacturer liability claim
Understanding your case
We do our best up-front to make sure you understand your legal case, including whether your case is on our No Win No Fee basis.
Before work on your case begins, we’ll prepare a Client Agreement which contains all the key information about the estimated fees and costs of your claim.
One of our lawyers will go through this document with you, as well as answer any questions you may have, in one of our free consultations.
Because every client’s case is different, so are their legal fees. Generally, the more work done on a case, the higher the total fee. This is based on either an hourly rate agreed between us and our client, or based on rates set by law. For most cases, legal fees are covered by an insurance company on the other side so it does not come out of your award.
In personal compensation claims, fees are never based on a percentage of the client’s total compensation.
Being the victim of negligent medical care can be particularly distressing but rest assured, if you have suffered a loss due to negligence and/or a defective medical device, you are entitled to a full explanation and to adequate compensation.
