Therefore, we operate on a no win, no fee basis for the majority of our personal injury claims, including those related to workplace accidents. This means you won't need to pay any legal fees upfront and there will be no surprise fees during the course of your claim. Instead, you will pay your fees to us on the successful outcome of your case, as an agreed proportion will be deducted from your compensation payout. If we’re unsuccessful in securing compensation, you won’t have to pay any fees to us.
If you have concerns about managing the costs associated with pursuing a workplace accident compensation claim, we can discuss your options during your initial consultation.
