In regards to how the claims process would work for you as a client, then here’s the process taken by our lawyers and solicitors – designed to make sure that you are in the best position to receive the maximum of highest compensation pay out possible. No win no fee is subject to our panel’s Stockport personal injury solicitor agreeing to take on your case and appropriate insurance cover being in place. When a compensation claim is successful, there will be a Success Fee. Success Fees will not exceed 25% of recovered damages including VAT. This fee will be subject to your individual circumstances. There are a few rare exceptions, which the panel solicitor for Stockport can explain to you in more detail. If no damages are recovered, then no fee is payable by you. Your agreement will be direct with the panel solicitor in Stockport, who is a third party and not owned or employed by us. Early termination fees may apply if you decide not to proceed or fail to follow reasonable legal advice. Such fees would be based on an hourly fee rate as set by that panel solicitor. We may receive a payment from the Stockport personal injury solicitors to whom we pass details if your case is accepted.

How the Process and Law Works
The UK law regarding personal injury compensation typically means that the losing party in a claim will be required to pay all costs resulting from a case. At Friends Legal Stockport, our lawyers** have special insurance policies set-up to protect them and the client from this potential scenario.
This is known in the legal industry as “after the event” insurance and if our solicitors or lawyers lost the case, then the insurance policy will cover any resulting costs. This means that our clients are further protected from having to spend money on the legal process.
Because we are committed to only offering the very best when it comes to representing out clients, we ensure that we are very rigorous when working with claimants. By being thorough during the claims process, it means that our clients will stand the best chance of success. Please read the following guidelines that we have set out for you should you be considering using a no win no fee* solicitor.
