Making an injury claim

In all cases, answers and useful advice can be offered through a free phone consultation with a Gartcosh-specialist solicitor.

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 leg fractures, for example, the compensation you actually keep could vary from £42,130 to £56,375 depending on the fees charged by your lawyer.
The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
