Child Abuse Compensation FAQs – How would I pay for a Claim?
We may be able to take your case under a Conditional Fee Agreement, also known as a No Win, No Fee Agreement.
At your initial consultation, our experts will advise whether you qualify for a No Win, No Fee service and explain in full the terms of such an agreement. In brief, as long as you stick to certain obligations, such as providing regular instructions, under a Conditional Fee Agreement you will not be charged unless we secure you compensation either by out of court settlement or legal proceedings. If you are not successful, you will be charged nothing, hence No Win, No Fee.
The law in relation to these agreements changed in 2013. It now states that, if your claim succeeds, the Defendants are responsible for your basic legal costs. Your solicitor will then be entitled to a success fee payable from your damages, which is calculated as a percentage of the legal costs. In most cases, this success fee will be capped by agreement.
Jordans will work tirelessly to ensure that we maximise any damages to which you are entitled.
