We offer free phone consultations to all new clients
We offer all of our new clients a free and no obligation initial phone consultation, during which we will take details from you regarding the accident.
Our team will ask you a series of questions to help us understand how the accident happened, the extent of your injuries and how it has affected your life.
We may also request to see your hospital or GP records, which we will obtain on your behalf once you have given us permission to do so. This medical information helps us decide whether we can assist you with a claim.
Once we have a detailed picture of your accident and the severity of your injuries, if we believe there is a good chance of a successful claim, we may then offer to represent you on a No Win No Fee basis.
How much does it cost to make a claim?
We do not charge our clients any fees to get a new claim up and running.
We use “Conditional Fee Agreements” to fund all of our claims. These agreements are also commonly referred to as “No Win No Fee Agreements” or “CFA’s”.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.
