We guarantee you will keep 100% of your compensation
While some law firms may retain part of your compensation, we believe that you are entitled to keep all of your award yourself. For this reason, we guarantee that you will keep 100% of your compensation payment.
Protection Against Legal Costs
We understand that the issue of costs may be of concern and we are able to offer full protection if required.
We can arrange a legal expenses insurance policy for you, which will provide full cover for your legal costs, should you not win your case. If you do win, a small premium will be payable from your compensation.
Alternatively, some cases may be eligible for Legal Aid and we can discuss this with you at the outset. If you are likely to be eligible, we will make the application for coverage on your behalf.
If you win your case or it is settled out of court, you can expect the insurance company to cover your legal costs.

If you are not able to work, your solicitor will request interim payments as your case progresses. These are payments in advance of your settlement that will ensure that you have money to live on in the meantime.
If your injuries are fairly long-term, you may be advised to wait before settling your claim to see what your prognosis will be and what help and care you might need in the future. In this case, interim payments are particularly important.
Is My Employer Liable For My Workplace Accident Injuries?
Your employer has a duty to keep you safe from harm. If they fail to do this, you could be entitled to make a work accident compensation claim.
Their responsibilities include the following:
- To provide safe and well-maintained equipment
- To train you and other workers in using equipment
- To comply with health and safety regulations, to include carrying out risk assessments
- To prevent negligence on the part of workers
- To ensure you have the necessary safety equipment
- To keep your workplace free of hazards, for example, to avoid slips and trips
If you are injured while working for your employer but the accident did not take place at their premises, you may still be able to make a claim. We can advise you on your rights.
What Compensation Will I Receive For Work Accident Injuries?
