At Digby Brown, we offer our own no win no fee funding model, Compensate.
This means that you don’t need to worry about how much it will cost as you won’t pay a penny throughout the case and it won’t cost you anything if your claim is not successful.
As a firm we strongly believe in doing everything possible to help people get back to a pre-accident position through claiming fair compensation for the injuries, for example access to private physiotherapy.
We also actively work with and support organisations who are trying to reduce the number of road accidents and crashes which happen every day.
