How Much Compensation Will I Receive?
This is a question we can discuss with you in detail once you start your claim. The award that you receive will depend upon the extent of your injuries and the financial loss that you may have suffered as a result of these injuries e.g. loss of earnings paying for care and assistance.
Who Will Pay The Compensation?
Local authorities are responsible for maintaining Safe Highways and Pavements.
Schools, supermarkets, shopping malls and private premises all owe a duty to lawful visitors. They will all be insured to compensate people who have been injured as a result of their negligence.
No Win, No Fee
With no win no fee, there aren’t any upfront charges or hidden costs. If you do win your case, we will charge you a ‘success fee’ as a percentage of the compensation you receive, this will then be capped at a maximum of 25% – and in many cases this is significantly less than this so you will receive the majority yourself. This fee will be agreed between you and your solicitor before we take on your case.
