In the event of a successful no win no fee claim, you’ll have to pay a ‘success fee’ for winning the claim, that we will clearly outline to you before taking on your case.
The losing party involved in the case will usually be required to contribute towards your legal costs, but any shortfall may also be deducted from your compensation.
The value of legal costs will always vary depending on circumstances of your case, and the amount of time your lawyer spent on it. This could be anything from several months, to a number of years.
At Ross Aldridge Solicitors we promise to limit the shortfall to a maximum 25% of your compensation, so you will always receive a minimum of 75% of the total amount awarded.
In high value and catastrophic injury work, we can often act for you with no deduction from your compensation at all.
Many legal firms will also charge you for the premium for legal protection insurance, as well as taking a proportion of your compensation.
We do not do this, and by trusting us with your claim you will completely avoid any hidden fees.
