  • Usually, our solicitors then enter negotiations with an insurer to reach a settlement. 
  • You receive the compensation you deserve.

“No Win No Fee” is not allowed in Northern Ireland. The Law Society of Northern Ireland regulates solicitors and it does not permit its members to practice this form of fee collection.

There are numerous ways to fund your case, including legal expenses insurance and legal aid.

If your claim is successful, you do not pay for the services of a personal injury solicitor. Typically, your compensation and any related fees are paid by an insurer. The vast majority of cases will settle in this fashion.

Unfortunately, we can only assist with personal injury and clinical negligence claims in Northern Ireland.
