The Top 10 Personal Injury Law Firms In The UK
We pride ourselves on providing impartial advice. One area in which we do this is our reviews of personal injury law firms in the UK.
Below, you can find the top 10 firms offering support in relation to personal injury compensation claims. Many, if not all firms, offer No Win No Fee agreements.
If you’re unfamiliar with the phrase “No Win No Fee”, it refers to a funding arrangement with your solicitor. If your case is strong enough, they will likely agree to represent you on the basis that they only get paid if your claim is a success. So if there is no win, there’s no fee to pay. Simple.
If your claim is a success, your solicitor will deduct their fee from the compensation awarded. This fee is capped by law at 25%, though some firms may charge less than this.
With No Win No Fee agreements, you don’t have to pay any fees upfront either, and there’s nothing to pay as the claim progresses either.
At the time of writing, the personal injury law firms listed below offer No Win No Fee agreements.
