Costs if Win

Personal injury claims are dealt with on a no-win, no-no-fee basis. If your claim is unsuccessful, you won’t be able to make a charge for the work you carried out.  Where you do not already have a policy of legal expenses insurance to cover your claim, I will issue a policy of insurance for you.  If your claim is unsuccessful, you won’t have to pay any expenses, as the insurance policy will repay all costs incurred on your behalf.  If the claim is unsuccessful, the insurance policy premium will not be payable by you as the dividend is only payable in successful shares.


If your claim is successful, you must contribute to your costs and expenses because the other party only contributes to the costs of making a claim.  The other party does not have to pay the insurance policy premium or the success fee, which is a fee charged for a successful claim to cover the cost of unsuccessful claims.  The deduction from your compensation award is capped at a maximum of 25% of the compensation award.  The maximum 25% deduction will apply to most low-value claims up to £25,000, where we can only recover a limited fixed costs contribution from the defendant’s insurers.  In claims settling for over £25,000, the cost contribution paid by the defendant’s insurers is much more generous. In many higher-value claims, the deduction from your compensation award can be significantly less than 25%.  I have dealt with several high-value claims during the last few years where the total removal from a claimant’s compensation award has been less than 10%.
