In the past you may have heard many tales of people who have successfully claimed compensation, only to have a huge portion taken away from them by their solicitors. At Lawson Taylor this is never the case, we guarantee that when you claim with us, you will keep 100% of the compensation you are awarded.
However large or small your settlement may be, we will not take a single penny. We even fund your claim throughout the entire process meaning you do not even have to make a returnable down payment. Win or lose, your claim will not cost you anything.
There is often confusion between the terms ‘100% compensation’ and ‘no win no fee’. ‘No win no fee’ means that if a solicitor is unable to obtain compensation for you then they will cover the costs themselves, meaning you won’t be out of pocket, despite being unsuccessful. However, often when a law firm offers this, but does not offer 100% compensation, you can expect to lose a portion of your settlement to your solicitors. Lawson Taylor offers both no win no fee and 100% compensation, meaning it really will cost you nothing to make a claim with us.
This can be done because under English Law, solicitors can recover their fees from the other party, often an insurance company, in a successful case. This payment is totally independent from your compensation amount and will be arranged between the two parties without you having to concern yourself about it.
The only exceptions to this offer are when you make a claim with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB)[link to Uninsured drivers page] or Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA)[link to criminal injury page]. The MIB deal with road traffic accident claims in which the responsible party is either uninsured or unable to be traced. The CICA deal with most criminal injury claims, as usually the guilty party does not have the means to pay compensation themselves and does not have sufficient insurance to deal with these types of claims. Both of these organisations are public bodies and therefore do not cover the legal fees of the victim’s solicitors. However, you will be told in detail if this is the case during your initial consultation with us.
At Lawson Taylor we offer expert legal advice and information completely free of charge. If you are unsure whether you are entitled to a claim you can contact our personal injury solicitors for a non-obligatory chat regarding your options. If you believe you may be entitled compensation, you have absolutely nothing to lose by contacting Lawson Taylor today.
