Do we really give you 100% compensation?
This is a both a good question and an important one to consider, as most Firms NO LONGER give you 100% compensation.
In fact as of the 1st April 2013 most firms now give you (we believe) 75% compensation.
This is because the law changed on 1st April 2013. The Government in their wisdom introduced legislation which means that the success fee that lawyers charge (when they win a claim as a reward for the risk of taking on a claim on a "No Win No Fee" basis) is no longer recoverable from your opponent.
From our research it seems that most lawyers NOW CHARGE YOU this success fee. Have you not noticed that the adverts for 100% compensation have all but disappeared? This is because most firms are no longer giving 100% compensation but are instead deducting 25% from your compensation for injury and past losses.
Different Law Firms are charging different sums but it does seem that that market has settled on a 25% (Including Vat) deduction from your compensation for injury and past losses. You should read the small print to see exactly what deductions are being made by your personal injury lawyer.
In addition from 1st April 2013 you can no longer recover an After The Event Insurance (ATE) premium from your opponent. The ATE is an Insurance premium that Injury lawyers take out to protect you against the risk of paying your opponents costs and any expenses incurred on your behalf such as experts reports. From our own research it seems most Injury Law Firms are charging you for this ATE premium by deducting it from your compensation at the conclusion of your claim.
So do we really give you 100% compensation?
The simple answer is YES so long as your claim meets our suitability assessment. That means for accidents at work, slips and trips, public liability claims, occupiers' claims and many other types of accidents that qualify, we can offer 100% compensation.
Here's how it works at The Injury Lawyers:
On qualifying claims, we give you 100% of your compensation. That means that 100% of your compensation, that is, every penny and every pound, is entirely yours. So long as you comply with our Terms and Conditions we don't ask you to pay us a single penny and we fund your entire claim.
You may ask how this is possible?
Well, on qualifying claims we can give you 100% of your compensation, without any hidden deductions or charges because we offer not to charge you a success fee and also pay for your ATE premium where we consider insurance is needed to protect your position
And rather uniquely, under our "No Win No Fee" agreement, we can actually limit our fees to what we recover from the other side. Unlike most Law Firms, we can say that we GENUINELY give you 100% Compensation, as we limit our fees to what we recover from the other side; meaning that if there is any shortfall in recovering our costs then we agree to write these off GUARANTEEING that you get 100% Compensation.
On qualifying claims, we believe that we can give you more compensation by NOT CHARGING you a success fee or charging you for the Insurance.
Our 110% Compensation 4U Pledge
From 1st April 2013, to offset the Government reforms, you now also get an extra 10% on top of your compensation for your injury. This 10% increase has been introduced to offset the cost of the success fee and the Insurance premium which are no longer recoverable from your opponent.
So, if you instruct The Injury Lawyers (that's us) on a qualifying claim, as we don't charge you a success fee and as we pay for the ATE Insurance policy (where a policy is needed) you get to KEEP ALL 100% of your compensation.
And because (from 1st April 2013) you now get an extra 10% on top of your compensation for your injury, in effect you now get 110% compensation when you instruct us.
We are aware that our clients often feel that our 110% Compensation pledge is 'too good to be true' but we can assure you that where you comply with our "No Win No Fee" agreement:
- We do not charge you the success fee
- We pay for the ATE Insurance Premium (excluding medical negligence cases) where one is needed
- You still get to keep the post-April 2013 10% increase on your injury compensation
Our client's, with qualifying cases, do receive 100% of their compensation and because of the 10% increase they, inn effect, NOW get 110% compensation so that they are better off than ever, despite the changes in law!
