Making a claim

How do you find the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor?
Compensation for a personal injury claim can take months, and even years in the most serious claims, to be settled. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however service levels can vary.
Considering the effect your legal representative can have on your life and your recovery, finding a solicitor that meets your needs is a crucial first step.
You should be aware that the amount of compensation you get to keep can vary considerably from firm to firm (2015 research). No Win, No Fee solicitors will expect you to pay a success fee and an ATE insurance premium. For very serious thumb injuries, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £15,840 to £28,325 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
The key issue to be aware of is how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
