Funding Your Claim
There are a number of different ways in which
a claim may be funded. Which method of funding the claim is the
most appropriate will depend on personal circumstances. Our free
confidential assessment service will assess which of the following
options best suits your situation:
Conditional fee agreement (commonly known as a
"no win, no fee" agreement)
Our solicitors can take cases on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. In
general terms, this means that if the case is unsuccessful we will
not charge you for our legal services.
Legal aid, also known as public funding, is not
available for the majority of personal injury cases. Legal aid is,
however, still available for cases of medical negligence involving
injuries at, or shortly after, birth.
Legal expenses insurance
You may have legal expenses insurance. This is most commonly found
incorporated into existing insurance policies e.g. home or motor
If you are a current member of a trade union or another
professional body, they may fund your claim on your behalf.
In this case you are
responsible for legal expenses incurred on your behalf and will be
billed on a monthly basis. You will be required to cover the legal
costs of your opponent if your case is unsuccessful.
The rules relating to the funding of claims can be complex.
