How can a community care case be funded?

There are a variety of funding options for community care cases. These include:

  • A retainer on a time-spent or hourly rate basis. This means we provide an estimate of the likely cost of dealing with an issue and you pay for the time-spent on the case, charged at the hourly rate of the responsible lawyer(s).
  • A retainer on a time-spent or hourly rate basis with deferred payment terms. In the case of a client who has a personal injury or clinical negligence claim, an agreement to recover the costs incurred on a time-spent basis through the compensation claim may be available.
  • A retainer on a fixed fee basis. This means our community care solicitors agree a fixed fee at the outset to address your instructions.
  • CrowdJustice. In appropriate cases, we may recommend exploring the possibility of using CrowdJustice, an online platform for crowdfunding legal fees to assist with the costs of legal advice.
  • Legal expenses insurance. Often this is included in home insurance policies and it may be used to pay for legal costs.
  • We are unable to support Legal Aid requests at this time.

Our community care solicitors will provide clear advice on the potential funding options available as part of the initial, free no obligation consultation.
