In 1998, the government abolished legal aid for personal injury compensation claims. This put making a claim out of the reach of many people. The 1999 Finance Act allowed the use of the conditional fee agreement to be extended to cover claims and this is the basis we operate on, although it is better known as no-win, no-fee*.
Our website has a 30-second test which will help you decide if you qualify for compensation. If you do, it will give you a rough estimate of how much you can expect to be awarded.
