Paying for a personal injury claim

No Win, No Fee | No success fee

Are you thinking about making a personal injury claim, but are worried about how much it will cost to instruct a solicitor?

Fortunately, there are a number of funding options available. This means we can handle your personal injury claim without any hidden charges or terrifying bills.

No Win, No Fee agreement (CFA)

One of the most common ways of funding a personal injury claim is by a “No Win, No Fee” agreement. But how does this type of agreement work?

Put simply, it means if your claim is not successful, you do not pay our legal charges. Therefore, if we offer you a No Win, No Fee agreement, it means we believe your claim stands a good chance of success. We are willing to risk not being paid for handling your claim.

No success fee

As a “reward” for handling your claim on a No Win, No Fee basis, solicitors can charge a success fee on top of their basic charges. This can be up to 100% of the value of their fees, meaning their charges can double. Solicitors are not allowed to recover this money from the opponents.

A very high number of law firms charge this fee, and deduct payment from your damages. This payment can be as much as 25% of the total damages award, meaning you only receive 75% of your compensation.

Levi Solicitors LLP charges NO SUCCESS FEE. This means you are far more likely to receive a higher proportion of your damages from us if your claim is successful, than if you choose a firm which charges a success fee.

Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)

You may be covered for legal costs under your insurance policies. So always check your home or motor policies to see if you opted to take out LEI at the same time. If you did, the insurer may agree to pay our charges on your behalf. This cover takes away any risk to you of being charged for our work.

Some credit cards also come with LEI, so you should check with your credit card company to see if you are covered for personal injury charges.
