Q. What makes up a Solicitors Legal Fees
In order to bring a claim for compensation through a solicitor certain fees are incurred. These are
- Your solicitors own charges
- The associated costs of bringing a claim known as disbursements i.e Medical Report Fees, Police Report Fees, Other expert Fees and court costs.
- Success Fees. These are the fees a solicitor will agree with you for acting on your behalf on a No Win No Fee agreement and cover the fact that they will not get paid should the claim fail.
Q. What is a No Win No Fee Agreement?
No Win No Fee is an agreement between you and a solicitor that means if your claim for compensation is not successful they are unable to charge you for their fees for the legal work that they have done. The No Win No Agreement may not cover you for the other associated costs of bringing a claim such as disbursements. Your responsibilities under the No Win No fee agreement are to give your solicitors instructions that allow them to do their work properly; not ask them to work in an improper or unreasonable way; not deliberately mislead them; co-operate with them; go to any medical or expert examination or court hearing.
Q. Will I need to take out an Insurance policy to mitigate the risk to me should the claim fail?
The solicitor you appoint will advise you whether you need to take out an insurance policy once they have examined whether or not you have any pre-existing Insurance in Place. If they recommend you to take out a policy the cost of the policy will be deducted from your compensation at the conclusion of your claim. If your claim fails you will not be required to pay for the policy as the policy will cover the cost of the premium as well as the associated costs (disbursements) that the policy insures.
Q. Am I contracting with One-Stop-Law Ltd to bring a claim for compensation?
No. The service provided by One-Stop-Law Ltd is free to you. Our Claims advisor's will simply discuss and assess the merits of any potential claim you wish to make. Then depending on the place you live and what legal assistance you require we will advise you as to how you could proceed.
Q. Do I need to pay any upfront costs?
No. Our service is free to you and our panel solicitors will fund any associated costs in bringing a claim for you. Any costs incurred will be deducted from your compensation at the conclusion of the claim.
Q. Will I have to make a contribution towards my legal costs.
Yes. Due to changes in legislation introduced in April 2013 solicitors can no longer recover all of their legal costs from the losing party. However, the most you will have to contribute is 25% of any compensation awarded to you. Your solicitor will agree the percentage prior to any work commencing and it is only due if you win your case.
Q. I live in Northern Ireland, can I instruct a solicitor on a No Win No Fee basis?
No Unfortunately the No Win No Fee option is not available in Northern Ireland. However, our solicitors will still be able to advise you on the merits of any potential claim you wish to make and the various funding options available to you.
Q. I live in Scotland, can I instruct a solicitor on a No Win No Fee basis?
Yes. Personal Injury Claims in Scotland operate in the same manner as in England and Wales although the process of bringing a claim is different.
The No Win No Fee option is however unavailable if your potential claim is one for Medical Negligence. However, our solicitors will still be able to advise you on the merits of any potential claim you wish to make and the various funding options available to you.
Q. Do I need to instruct a lawyer to bring a claim for compensation?
Not always. In our initial discussion with you we will identify other potential methods of pursuing a claim other than by instructing a lawyer. Where a claim is one that falls within the province of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, the Financial Ombudsman Service, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, the Housing Ombudsman Service or any other recognised dispute resolution procedure we will recommend you to review whether or not you can make a claim directly. Whilst our Lawyers work tirelessly to obtain the correct level of compensation for you we do not in any way suggest that you will receive a more favourable outcome by instructing a lawyer than you could achieve by making a claim directly or through a relevant Ombudsman scheme.
