Digby Brown offer a truly no win no fee arrangement which means you, the client will not have to pay a penny throughout your case.
If you have been injured in an accident, the process of preparing your claim can involve considerable expense in obtaining the necessary medical and other expert reports. In addition, if you raise court proceedings against the person who caused your injury and the action does not succeed, you may become liable for your opponent’s legal costs.
The prospect of having to find the money to pay for expert reports, and the risk of having to meet the other side’s costs is sufficient to force many accident victims to settle for inadequate out of court compensation offers.
That is why Digby Brown formed its’ own legal funding company, Compensate, which takes the financial risk out of personal injury litigation by providing a complete funding and insurance package.
This allows Digby Brown solicitors to litigate (raise the case in court) with no financial risk to you. The prospect of having to find the money to pay for expert reports and the risk of having to meet the other side’s costs is sufficient to force many accident victims to accept inadequate out of court offers settlement.
With Compensate you can afford to use the leading experts who will help you win your case. In the event that your case is unsuccessful, the insurance policy which Compensate takes out on your behalf will kick in and you will have no personal liability to meet the other side’s costs. Compensate allows us to give you access to justice with no financial risk.
Therefore if the case is successful, Compensate is entitled to charge a 'success fee' expressed as a percentage of your damages plus VAT. The percentage which Compensate will charge depends on the degree of risk involved.
