Changes to personal injury compensation claims4th Mar 2013

by on 4th Mar 2013


adrian-500If you have a Personal injury or a Clinical negligence claim then we urge you to seek legal advice NOW.

From 1st April 2013 the Government is changing the way that Personal Injury and Clinical negligence compensation claims are funded such that even under a No win, No fee Agreement you will no longer retain all of your damages and may have to pay towards a success fee and insurance premium. Further, the entitlement to Legal Aid will no longer be available except in very restricted Clinical Negligence claims.

Our personal injury lawyers are happy to advise you on the various funding options with a guarantee of 100% of damages being paid to you if the claim succeeds providing the Agreement is signed before 1st April.

Why should you use Coles Miller Personal Injury?

Our expert personal injury and clinical negligence teams includes members of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel and the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and the Approved Solicitors’ Lists for Headway. Our experienced team of personal injury lawyers have a proven track record of winning cases.

We are happy to offer a first interview free of charge, at home your office or elsewhere at your convenience. Please contact Adrian Cormack or David Simpson (Clinical Negligence) before 1st April 2013 to discuss your potential claim urgently to avoid being caught by the new rules.
