No win, no fee solicitors

We know that making a personal injury claim can be daunting, and many people worry that they will face a large legal bill at the end of the process. Our lawyers are able to deal with your claim on a no-win, no-fee basis, also known as a conditional fee agreement (CFA). This means there is no financial risk if your claim is unsuccessful. We will be happy to discuss with you exactly what this means and how it all works.

Frequently Asked Questions

We have access to the very best rehabilitation experts and medical professionals to provide the best possible care for you or your loved one. We also work with specialist care providers where you may only need occasional respite care right up to full time live in care with double up throughout the day and night.

We can arrange specialist equipment from motorised wheelchairs, gantry and mobile hoists, adapted vehicles, bespoke adapted kitchens through to robotics to aid mobility. We regularly work with suppliers of the most cutting edge equipment to make life easier and to aid the recovery process.

Yes, we can take over your claim from your existing solicitor without any financial implications for you. You just have to sign a form of authority and we do the rest. We are able to take over cases that have legal aid funding and we will offer you a no win no fee agreement so that you will not be worse off financially.

Mostly personal injury cases do not go to trial. Most settle before trial. However, we work on the basis that your case has to be prepared as if it will go to trial. That way we achieve the very best result for you in the shortest possible time. If it does go to trial we will support you and your family every step of the way.

In most cases, the time for commencing a claim with the court is three years from the date of the negligent act. In some cases, it is three years from the date when you first realise that you have suffered a serious injury due to the negligence of another party. In fatal cases, it is three years from the date of death.

It can take a number of years to gather the evidence that you and we need to achieve a final resolution of the claim. Sometimes we have to wait until a medical condition or symptoms resolve before exploring settlement. In claims involving children we may have to wait until the child reaches a certain age to be able to determine what their needs will be in the future. We can give you an idea of the likely timescale of your case at the start.

We will be able to offer you a no win no fee agreement, which means that if you lose you don’t pay anything at all. If you win you may have to pay a success fee although we will discuss whether or not you will be asked to pay a success fee at the start and before you enter into the agreement with us. That way you can decide!

In some cases we will advise you to take out after the event insurance and we will be able to advise on that before we get started. The insurance premium is reasonably priced and is only payable if you win and at the end of the case.

Some two years ago, as executor of my sister's will, I consulted Lester Aldridge about making a compensation claim for significant inheritance tax losses incurred when my sister was killed by a careless and very elderly driver who mounted the pavement and crushed her against a wall. The claim has been expertly and energetically led in the past year by David Healy, resulting in a very satisfactory outcome without the case having to go to courtClose quote

I had a worksite accident which resulted in a severe head injury. David Healy took my case on against 3 other defendants. I could not have chosen such an experienced, helpful person for my case. It was a very torrid time for 3 and a half years, but David Healy got me the best experts, the best care team available, but more so than anything, settled my case out of court with the best possible outcome a few months ago. David and his team were there with me in my darkest hours. I would recommend David at Lester Aldridge all day long.Close quote

Having appointed Lester and Aldridge as my legal team, I had the huge fortune to be a client of Ms Karen Watts (Associate FCILEx).
The support, advice, tenacity and professional drive I received from Ms Watts was utterly astounding. I was kept fully informed throughout a three year legal process, ultimately reaching a significant settlement.
I must recommend the firm and more so Ms Watts, as truly superb.Close quote
