We operate on a no win, no fee basis. We don’t want you to be put off making a claim because you’re worried about the cost of seeking legal advice. We believe justice should be available to everyone.
This means that, if you do not win your case, you will not be expected to pay any fees or charges. Unlike some other firms, with Medical Accident Group, you won’t even have to pay things like experts’ fees as you go along – these are the expenses that we will pay out to others to support your claim.
The law states that if the case is lost, the losing party pays the legal costs. We want to make sure you won’t be required to cover any court costs, however.
That’s why, as part of your no-win-no-fee agreement, we’ll take out an ‘after the event’ (ATE) insurance policy on your behalf. An ATE is only taken out once the legal case has begun, and is specifically designed to protect clients whose claims are potentially unsuccessful.
The cost of the ATE insurance policy is, like the legal fees, deferred until the end of the case. If the case is unsuccessful, no payment is required, as the premium is self-insuring.
