What is a 'no win no fee' agreement?
A "no win no fee" agreement means you can make a personal injury claim without any financial risk to you. Pedestrian Law Scotland operates on a "no win-no fee" basis. We offer a risk free, personal injury package at no cost to you.
If, following your initial meeting with one of our legal team whether by phone, email exchange or in person, a decision is made to take your case on, then we will provide you with access to justice at no cost. If you lose the case, you simply “walk away”, with NO legal fees to pay and NO liability for the other side’s legal costs.
If you’ve been involved in a pedestrian accident, the process of preparing your claim will involve expense. However, right from the start, you can rest assured we will not ask you to pay any expenses.
We take the view that if you have at least a 50% prospect of success, we will fund your case for you. We will pay for medical reports, Police reports and even road traffic accident reconstruction costs.
If we cannot get agreement from the Insurer to settle your case, it may be necessary to raise proceedings in Court. So long as you have at least a 50% prospect of success, we will support your case with a funding package.
Even if we lose the Court action, you will not have to pay a penny.
Our track record in winning cases is strong and experience counts.
On successful conclusion of a case, we will usually recover outlays from the losing side and unlike many claims companies, we won’t deduct a percentage from your claim. We may charge a fee depending upon our assessment of risk and any agreement we have with you.
