Do you accept all personal injury claims on a no win no fee basis?
Yes, once we have assessed that the prospects of your claim are in excess of 50%, we will be happy to take your claim on a “no win, no fee” basis. In 99% of cases, this will be a Conditional Fee Agreement, where our base costs are recovered from the fault party. There are very few exceptions where we cannot accept cases on this basis, which are usually Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority cases and Motor Insurer’s Bureau cases where the fault party cannot be traced which do not provide for our base costs and so, we would look to handle these cases on a different “no win, no fee” agreement called a Contingency Fee Agreement.
In April of 2013, recoverable legal fees were reduced and there is a success fee to pay which for Conditional Fee Agreements is never any more than 25% of your damages. You will, on a Conditional Fee Agreement with MG Legal, never receive less than 75% of your damages. There is good news, however, in that, despite reducing legal fees, compensatory awards to those injured, were increased by 10%- very good news indeed.
