Our solicitors will discuss any injury claim with you for NO FEE and then provide you with options on how to proceed.
In the vast majority of cases, we will recover our fees from the other party’s insurance company. However, there may also be options in terms of Legal Aid, After the Event Insurance (ATE Insurance), or cover via your home insurance policy.
No Win No Fee claims, also known as Contingency Fee Agreements, are not permitted in Northern Ireland – but there are other options. Please don’t listen to GB-based companies who suggest they can carry out No Win No Fee claims, and then try to sell your details on for others to call you. We will never give your personal details to anyone.
Solicitors in Northern Ireland are governed by the Law Society of NI who have banned No Win No Fee claims. In England, No Win No Fee arrangements allow solicitors to take 25-33% of clients’ damages and use this to top up their fees.
We don’t believe in this system, therefore our solicitors will never enter into any No Win No Fee arrangement, and we refuse to take a % of your personal injury damages. We believe our system works better than No Win No Fee as it means you as the client will get all the money you have been awarded.
If a solicitor in Northern Ireland says they are doing No Win No Fee or are taking a % of your money, then call us to discuss your options.
Never be afraid to enquire about an injury claim, as we never charge for an injury claim consultation. During the initial interview, we will be able to tell you if we think you have a case and then discuss various payment options.
