This will depend upon the type of funding agreement that you enter into. If you already have a legal expenses insurance policy, this may cover most or all of your costs associated with the claim.
If your case relates to a neurological injury affecting a child, you may be entitled to obtain Legal Aid funding. If so, then normally you will not have to pay anything.
We are one of the few solicitors firms in the North of England that has a Legal Aid franchise that enables us to represent clients in Legal Aid cases.
If you do not have a legal expenses insurance policy and are not entitled to Legal Aid, then most clients fund their claims by way of a Conditional Fee Agreement.
Under this agreement if you do not win your case, you are not liable to pay our fees. In the event that you win your case, you will have to pay a success fee out of your compensation. This is limited to no more than 25% of the compensation recovered.
You may also have other expenses to pay, which might include part of the cost of the insurance policy that you would normally take out to cover your risk of losing the case. It may also include some or all of the defendant’s costs.
We will advise you fully in this respect and at Longden, Walker & Renney we give all of our clients a guarantee that we will not deduct more than 25% of recovered compensation to cover basic charges and any success fees in your case.
