Options for referring cases
Straight personal injury referrals
For most firms the simplest way for the Network to operate is a straight referral. By passing the contact details of the person/persons involved, Digby Brown will then take the necessary next steps, including: assessment of the merits of the case, arranging funding and liaison directly with the client.
This method is to accommodate the firms who do not wish to remain involved in a personal injury case. They will receive an agreed percentage of the net success fee, usually 20%*, for referrals leading to a successful conclusion, set at a minimum of £400. Once Compensate receive 10 cases that are taken on they will receive 30% thereafter.
Referrals will be made by forwarding the client details or in the case of ongoing cases the client file. All referred client would be contacted immediately upon referral
Partnership personal injury referrals
Some firms, or in, particular instances a referring firm will wish to remain involved as the principal agent for the client and this is classed as a partnership referral.
The referring law firm will take an initial statement and then refer the personal injury claim to Digby Brown by email or letter with any other documents provided by the client.
Digby Brown will assess the case and if it is deemed to have prospect of success we would arrange Compensate funding.
The referring firms will keep all client contacts, and if felt appropriate, take statements, attend consultations and pre-trial meetings.
Digby Brown will instruct experts, negotiate with insurers, deal with Compensate and draft the Court papers. You will incur no outlays.
In the event of a successful conclusion, the judicial expenses will be split between the referring firm and Digby Brown on the basis of the work done by each firm, which is calculated by our law accountants, Alex Quinn and Partners.
The share of the Compensate success fee will be the referring firm receiving an agreed percentage of the net success fee, usually 20%*, for referrals leading to a successful conclusion, set at a minimum of £400. Once Compensate receive 10 cases that are taken on they will receive 30% thereafter.
