We are no win no fee Solicitors – you pay nothing if you lose!

Starting a case on a no win no fee basis means that if your compensation claim is not successful, you do not pay your solicitor’s fees.

If we win your case, the majority of your legal costs are likely to be paid by the defendant party, or their insurers. This enables people who have a valid claim to pursue a legal action, even if you don’t have the funds available for costly legal bills.

The amount of compensation depends upon the circumstances of each specific case. For example: a medical negligence claimant whose complications caused a lifelong disability will likely be awarded many times the level of compensation awarded to someone who had a fall which kept them off work for a few weeks. Once we have details of your injuries and financial losses, our no win no fee solicitors will be able to give you an idea of what compensation you could receive. Contact us to discuss your claim. Please read some of our past cases to find out if we have a case similar to yours and the amount of compensation we have achieved for previous clients.

An initial telephone consultation is usually adequate for us to establish if you have a claim which can be handled on a no win no fee basis. Although not always necessary, our clients will often visit one of our offices to discuss the claim in more detail, or we can visit you at home or in hospital. We conduct our own investigation into what happened and, if we feel that you have a valid case for an accident claim against a third party, we will begin the legal process on your behalf.

Because we have high success rates, we are confident of a successful outcome and you may receive significant damages, depending on the extent of your injuries. Sometimes, a case will go to Court if the other party wishes to fight it but usually this is not necessary, particularly if the other party accepts liability and makes a reasonable offer to settle a client’s case out of court. Either way, you will work with a highly qualified, local Swindon solicitor who is a specialist in no win no fee claims and we will fight very hard to win your case and obtain maximum compensation for you.

If you need a dental or medical negligence solicitor or a specialist in accident claims or elderly care claims, why not contact S. J. Edney free, to discuss your accident and discover if you have a claim for compensation? You have nothing to lose!
