In 1998 the government abolished legal aid for personal injury compensation claims, which 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 upon which we operate, although it is better known as no win no fee*. As Esther will tell you, it means exactly that — you will have to find no money to start your claim.
Our website has a 30-second test which will help you to decide if you qualify for compensation, and if you do will give you a rough estimate about how much you can expect to be awarded.
