Can I claim for personal injury on a no win no fee basis?
Yes, you can. Provided the cause of the injury was not your fault, then the expert personal injury solicitors at MG Legal, will accept your claim for personal injury, on a no win no fee basis.
Any personal injury you sustain that was caused by the negligence of another person, or company (for example, you can claim personal injury compensation from your employer, if you are injured at work) permits you to make a claim against them for a sum of money that is appropriate for your injuries. You can almost always make this type of claim on a “no win, no fee” basis and here at MG Legal, this is the main type of agreement on which we act for our clients.
What can I claim for?
There are two elements of a personal injury claim: general damages, and special damages.
General Damages is a sum of money that compensates you for the Pain, Suffering and Loss of Amenity (how bad your injuries were, how long you took to recover or any long- lasting effects and the effect on your life) sustained because of the Injury.
You can also claim for Special Damages, which are anything else that has come out of your pocket or that has been lost because of the incident or injury. Most commonly, Special Damages include Lost Earnings, Care Costs, Medication or Rehabilitation costs and Damaged Property. In Road Traffic Accidents this can also include vehicle damage and the cost of a replacement vehicle whilst yours is repaired or the pre-accident value of your vehicle is paid to you.
In short, if the incident has caused you to either miss out on something, to not be paid, or to have to pay for something extra, such as the cost of taxis, medical expenses, or vehicle repairs, then MG Legal's personal injury solicitors will make sure that you are reimbursed for your losses.
What is a claim for personal injury?
We all think we know what a personal injury is, but in relation to personal injury claims for compensation, injury can include everything from whiplash, and a stiff neck or back, through to personal injury claims against medical practitioners, known as medical negligence claims. From slipping on a wet supermarket floor, and sustaining a soft tissue injury, to being injured at work or medically misdiagnosed, there are literally thousands of ways to be injured, and if you been injured by someone else’s negligence, then you could claim for personal injury compensation. MG Legal’s personal injury compensation solicitors accept all personal injury claims, on a No Win No Fee basis.
How do I start a personal injury claim?
Contact a reputable, local Solicitor like MG Legal. Our personal injury solicitors will be able to tell you if have a claim worth making, just by speaking to you over the ‘phone.
The first, and probably best bit of advice we can give you, is to always use a personal injury solicitor, and not a claims management company. The team at MG Legal are very good at what we do, and take pride in winning our clients’ cases. We are not a huge conveyer-belt personal injury firm, so we will take the time to go through your claim with you, and advise you, exactly what our plan of action will be. We will discuss the type of incident with you, the circumstances and your injuries and loses, including any pressing matters, including medical care, or physiotherapy to aid your recovery. We will ask you to complete our Claim Form which provides all the information we need to get your claim started on a no win, no fee basis.
Once we are in possession of your completed Claim Form, our team of expert solicitors will present your personal injury claim to the fault party either in a Claims Notification Form or a Letter of Claim. There are various different legal protocols to follow known as the “Pre-Action Protocols” and so, once we have all the information we need, we will be able to select the correct Protocol to get your compensation claim started.

Do I have to pay costs to make a claim for personal injury compensation?
Upfront payment of costs in personal injury matters is pretty much unheard of. In the vast majority (over 99%) of cases, we will accept your claim on a Conditional Fee Agreement (no win, no fee agreement). 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, personal injury 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. There is good news, however, in that, despite reducing legal fees, compensatory awards to those injured, were increased by 10%- very good news indeed.
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.
