How much will it cost me to make a claim if I’m not eligible for Legal Aid?

If we take on your medical negligence claim and you are not eligible for Legal Aid, we will offer you a Conditional Fee Agreement which is known as a ‘No Win No Fee’ Agreement. This means that you will not need to pay anything upfront, there are no hidden costs and you pay nothing if your claim is unsuccessful.  We only get paid our fees if your claim succeeds.

Other solicitors may offer you a ‘No Win No Fee’ agreement but may ask you for money upfront or at different stages as the claim progresses. They may ask you to pay for:

  • an initial investigation to see whether or not they will be willing to take on your case
  • medical examinations and reports
  • opinions from experts
  • expenses

We will never ask you to pay any such costs.

You will only need to pay us if your claim succeeds and this is paid out of your compensation. We will discuss with you what you can expect to pay. We also guarantee we will aim to allow you to keep at least 75% of your compensation.
