Funding a claim
Funding a claim
If you are a client of the Withy King personal injury team you are safe in the knowledge that we act on the basis of a no win, no fee agreement or an alternative funding arrangement that gives you the same peace of mind.
We will gladly assess the prospects of your claim free of charge. If you have a sound claim we will help make straightforward arrangements to protect you from financial risk.
‘No win, no fee’ agreement
A ‘no win, no fee’ agreement, also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement, helps protect you from financial risk when making a claim. This means that if you lose your case, you do not have to pay our costs. Your opponent’s costs are paid by insurance that we will arrange on your behalf.
Legal Expenses Insurance
You may have the benefit of legal expenses insurance which typically covers the cost of a wide variety of legal work including accident claims. We will explore this with you to make sure that you are able to instruct the solicitor you choose, rather than the one your insurer wants you to have.
Legal Aid cover is available for accident claims, but only in certain circumstances, such as medical accidents. Withy King is one of a limited number of firms that has been awarded a Legal Aid Franchise to represent accident victims through Legal Aid funding.
Private funding (where you pay the solicitor directly) is an option, but is rarely the best alternative for you.
We’d be happy to discuss this and the other funding alternatives with you without any obligation.
