No Win, No Fee
Public funding (Legal Aid) was removed for nearly all personal injury claims in 1998. It is still available for a very limited number of assault claims (including criminal injury) and for medical negligence, subject to satisfying two strict tests relating to how good the case appears and your income, outgoings, and the value of your home.
As a result nearly all personal injury and many medical negligence claims are pursued using Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) or No Win, No Fee.
Free Initial Consultation
We understand that you will want to speak to us initially to see how we can assist. We offer a no obligation, free first meeting at any of our offices throughout East Anglia, at your home, or in hospital followed by a full letter of advice. If you are unsure whether you may have a claim please feel free to ring or e-mail us, again without obligation.
Legal Expenses Insurance
You may be able to cover the costs of pursuing a claim if you have Legal Expenses Insurance cover. Many motor insurance policies, household contents insurance and even some credit cards have legal expenses insurance attached. Travel insurance may cover the legal costs if you have suffered an accident or injury abroad.
No Win, No Fee
A "No Win, No Fee", or Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), allows you to pursue a claim at no risk to you.
Fosters agree not to charge for the work that we do if your claim is not successful. If you win your case, the vast majority of your costs, disbursements and insurance policy premium (see below) will be payable by the Defendant in addition to your compensation.
At Fosters, to protect you against the risk of losing, we arrange "after-the-event" insurance which pays the other side's costs and your own disbursements if you lose. The cost of the policy is also written off in these circumstances meaning that you pay absolutely nothing.
What Can We Do For You
We will be able to support and advise you throughout the whole process of your claim, explaining all fees and funding options to you in our free first meeting with no obligation for you to continue with us.
At Fosters you will receive all the advice you need to ensure you are prepared not only for your case, but the impact beyond. That is why we have become the Solicitors of choice for so many clients who rely on our depth of expertise and discretion.
