Checking Deductions From Damages
Has your solicitor deducted legal fees from your damages?
It is common in many personal injury claims for lawyers to make deductions from any damages recovered. This is normally to compensate them for the risks of taking a case on a “no win, no fee” basis. However, there are strict limits on the amounts that can be deducted. Unfortunately, the rules relating to this are complicated and your solicitor may have deducted too much. If you have had money deducted from your damages, we can check that you have not been overcharged.
