How We Charge.
There is a perception that lawyers cost a lot of money and that if you use one you will have a large legal bill to pay, and will possibly be left out of pocket. We can’t vouch for other law firms but this is not the case at Peninsula Personal Injury Lawyers.
We work on a no win no fee basis. This means on a successful outcome to your claim where you obtain Compensation (or a 'win') the insurer will pay not only the Compensation, but most of your legal costs (Party Party Costs) plus Disbursements (money we have spent on medical reports and evidence to support your claim).
When there is a 'win' you will have to pay the remainder of the legal costs (Solicitor Client Costs) from your Compensation. This does not mean we will charge 10% of your Compensation, it means we will charge 10%, or our actual Solicitor Client Costs, whichever is less. But never more than 10%.
If there is no offer or you do not receive any Compensation then there is no 'win'. If this happens then you wont pay any Costs, but you will have to repay us for any Disbursements we have paid for to obtain the evidence. This is only fair because we dont ask you to put any money up front to pay for Disbursements.
The risk of you being out of pocket is minimal, as we won’t lie to you and take on your claim if we don’t think there is a good chance of success, and we don’t spend money on a claim for Disbursements unless we are confident that we can 'win'.
There are no hidden costs. We are upfront from the start.
