Car Injury Solicitor Explains How To Claim Compensation Whilst Incurring The Minimum Legal Costs
Since the removal of legal aid – personal injury and road traffic accident claims have a number of different ways available which will allow your legal costs to be funded at no cost to yourself.
Motor legal protection cover
If you are the owner of the vehicle and have motor insurance – you might well have legal protection cover, which typically will fund an insurance panel solicitor to make your claim.

No win no fee
The most talked about and useful way to fund your claim is a “no win no fee” car injury solicitor funding arrangement. With this agreement your lawyer agrees not to charge you his fees if the claim does not succeed and if the claim does succeed your lawyer will be able to charge the driver at fault and motor insurer the majority of legal costs incurred.
Agreements taken after April 2013 could result in a deduction from compensation if your claim is successful for unrecovered legal costs – check your no win no fee agreement before you sign to ensure this sum (normally expressed as percentage of compensation) is clear.
