We will take your claim forward on a No Win, No Fee basis by entering into a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) with you.
This means that in the event that we win your case, we will recover our fees and expenses from the other party or parties.
In exchange for taking the risk that we may not be paid if the claim is not successful, we are entitled under the terms of our CFA to claim a success fee from you to be paid from any damages recovered.
You may already have a legal expense insurance policy in place to provide cover for you in the event that any claim is unsuccessful. If not, we are currently investigating a number of appropriate litigation funding and insurance options for our clients. After The Event insurance (ATE) normally provides indemnity cover to reduce the risks of costs exposure (including any funding provided) to clients involved in litigation. The premium for such a policy is normally only payable if the case is successful and the cost of it shared amongst each of the claimants involved in the action, as a deduction from any damages recovered.
Our First Response Team will be able to take you through the key features of the CFA as a funding agreement and will address any questions you may have.
It’s helpful if you’re quick to start a claim as the records and investigations will be readily available and the detail of the event will still be ‘fresh’ in your mind, which will help when putting your case together. There is also a three year time limit from the injury. Usually if you attempt to bring a claim after this date, it will be considered ‘statute barred’ or ‘out of time’ under the Limitation Act of 1980, Section 11. If you are within the time limit, or are unsure as to whether you fall within the time period allowed, you can speak to us and we’ll be able to advise you as best we can based upon the information you’re able to share with us.
After a free initial phone consultation, a specialist group claims solicitor can get a feel for your circumstances, the problems you face and consequences you’re having to live with. If they feel that something wasn’t done, that should have been, and your case should be investigated further, they will go on to request copies of your records, with your permission. We will tell you if we think you have a case that will succeed and equally importantly if we do no think we will tell you as soon as possible.
Throughout your claim, Your Legal Friend will help you every step of the way
I am very happy and satisfied with the settlement you achieved for me and the service was excellent and thank you very much

Pay nothing if you lose your case, get maximum compensation if you win
Whatever the nature of your group claim, we always seek the maximum level of compensation for our clients – and if your case is unsuccessful, we don’t charge you any fees. This is our guarantee for all standard personal injury claims.
With our no win, no fee guarantee, you pay nothing, unless you win your compensation claim. At that point you will only pay your insurance premium, if applicable, and the success fee, which will never be more than 25% of the amount you win.
