Who pays my legal costs? Before embarking on your compensation claim, you need certainty and peace of mind about covering your legal costs.
At BLB Solicitors, funding your claim is usually very straightforward, either through:
- your existing legal expenses insurance cover; or
- our ‘no win/no fee’ scheme.
At the outset, your solicitor will explore with you the most suitable method for you. Let us take the worry out of your compensation claim.
No win/no fee compensation claim
Also known as a ‘Conditional Fee Agreement’, a No Win/No Fee agreement helps protect you from financial risk when making your compensation claim.
If you win your claim, part of your compensation goes towards paying your legal costs.
If you lose your claim, there are no legal costs to pay.
Legal Expenses Insurance
You may already have insurance to cover your legal expenses. For instance, it commonly forms part of your home and contents cover or possibly another insurance policy taken out before your accident. Alternatively, legal expenses cover may be provided as a benefit to you by your bank or credit card company.
You may find that your legal expenses insurer tells you they will only cover your legal costs if you use their panel solicitor. Of course, their panel solicitor is very unlikely to be a chronic pain specialist. Indeed, many of our clients begin their claims with such panel solicitors before quickly becoming frustrated by their lack of knowledge and poor representation.
However, as a result of our reputation as specialist chronic pain solicitors, we are often successful in persuading legal expenses insurers to allow us to act under their policy. Therefore, we recommend that we help you with the application process. We do not charge for doing this.
Since 2013, with rare exceptions, Legal Aid has been unavailable for making personal injury compensation claims.
