At Harris Fowler we understand that making a claim can seem daunting and you may have concerns about who you are claiming against and who pays. We have over 20 years of experience in personal injury and medical negligence claims and are one of the leading Personal Injury Solicitor Firms so you have nothing to worry about. Our expert lawyers will take the stress out of claiming and ensure that you receive the best possible compensation including treatment, care and support.
The majority of our work is undertaken on a No Win No Fee basis meaning that if you lose you don’t pay and if you win the Defendants will also pay the majority if not all of your costs.
No Win No Fee
No Win No Fee is the catchphrase for the type of agreement used in most personal injury claims between the injured person and their legal representative. The agreement is also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement or CFA. The ‘Condition’ is that to get paid we have to win your case.
There has in the past been plenty of unfair press coverage regarding No win No fee and although some firms of Solicitors may be less than ‘transparent’ in their dealings with clients, we at Harris Fowler are concerned solely with providing the best service for you.
No win No fee agreements enable injured people to claim the compensation they are entitled to without any personal financial risk. If we work for you on a No win No fee basis we guarantee that if you lose your case, you don’t have to pay anything.
If you win your case, we will claim the majority if not all of your legal costs directly from the Defendant’s insurance company. Due to a change in the law from 1st April 2013, it is possible that you may have to make a contribution from your compensation towards your legal costs. We will discuss this with you before your case gets started.
The Claims Process
Once your file has been opened you will be assigned to a dedicated experienced lawyer who will keep you updated and advise you throughout your claim. If necessary, a barrister may be involved to advise on your case. We will also assess any treatment & rehabilitation requirements you have and assist with these as appropriate.
We will also need to arrange for you to have a private appointment with a medical consultant specific to your injuries. A medical report and information regarding your losses will be required to assess how much compensation you are entitled to for your injuries.
We will then negotiate the settlement of your claim as quickly as possible whilst ensuring that you are getting the compensation you are entitled to with the majority of cases being settled out of Court.
