Do I have to pay legal costs to make a claim for personal injury?
If you have suffered a personal injury, as a result of another person's negligence, when you contact the no win no fee personal injury specialists at MG Legal, we will accept your claim on a Conditional Fee Agreement (no win, no fee agreement), basis. This means that our base legal fees will be recovered from the fault party at the end of the claim. It also means that you would not be at risk of paying solicitors costs in the highly unlikely event your claim does not succeed and so you have the peace of mind knowing that you will not be liable for our fees win, lose or draw.
However, since April 2013 when a change in the Law reduced the costs the fault party have to pay, solicitors are permitted to deduct 25% of client’s damages in successful to fund their services. Whilst we would prefer not to do so, this is the way the law now works and so, you are expected to make this contribution. However, this is only something that applies if your claim succeeds and benefits both you as the client and MG Legal as your solicitor by increasing the reward for maximising the value of your claim. However, in that, despite reducing legal fees, compensatory awards to those injured, were increased by 10%.
We are always happy to discuss any aspect of the Conditional Fee Agreement with our clients and we would not expect you to sign the document until you are 100% happy with the content.
MG Legal are a leading law firm, with a specialist team of experts dealing in personal injury matters. Client satisfaction is top of our agenda, and if you have sustained a personal injury, our team will be happy to answer any questions or queries that that you may have, prior to commencing a claim for personal injury compensation.
