Considering a personal injury claim? There are funding options available.
‘You can explore funding options before you go ahead with a personal injury claim.’
If you are thinking about bringing a personal injury claim, funding will be a concern. We often act on the basis of a no win, no fee agreement or can look into alternative funding arrangements which would give you the same peace of mind.
Looking into ways of funding a personal injury claim
You’ll need to talk to us to get the full picture, but here are some of the options for funding a personal injury claim.
- ‘No win, no fee’ agreement
A ‘no win, no fee’ agreement, also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement, helps protect you from financial risk when making a claim. This means that if you lose your case, you do not have to pay our costs. Your opponent’s costs are paid by insurance that we will arrange on your behalf.
- Legal expenses insurance
You may have the benefit of legal expenses insurance which typically covers the cost of a wide variety of legal work including accident claims. We will explore this with you to make sure that you are able to instruct the solicitor you choose, rather than the one your insurer wants you to have.
- Legal Aid
Legal Aid cover is available for accident claims, but only in certain circumstances, such as medical accidents. Royds Withy King is one of a limited number of firms that has been awarded a Legal Aid Franchise to represent accident victims through Legal Aid funding.
- Private Funding
Private funding (where you pay the solicitor directly) is an option, but is rarely the best alternative for you.
