Often, the fees for legal assistance from a personal injury lawyer will not be charged to the victim. If liability has been established, all damages suffered by the victim must be compensated by the liable party. This includes legal fees.
Before we start working on your case, we will provide you with a clear overview on the financial side of the case and inform you about all possible costs.
In addition, we will check whether you may be eligible for government-funded legal aid. Whether you are eligible depends on your income (or the total income of your household). Legal aid is only accessible if your case is managed by a lawyer. If you choose to work with a personal injury specialist or agency instead, you will not have access to government funded legal aid. Also keep in mind that these counsellors often request a percentage of your compensation. This is not the case when you work with a personal injury lawyer.
If you have any other question about legal fees, please do not hesitate to contact one of our personal injury specialists.
