Just as the advice that we offer as to whether your claim has a reasonable likelihood of success is clear, straightforward and honest, so too is our approach to explaining the fees process. In short, our no win, no fee structure is designed to help you retain as much of the compensation we win for you as possible.
We provide a simple and straightforward no win, no fee service. This means that there are no catches and no hidden costs or extras.
A commitment to fairness
A recent review of legal costs in Scotland conducted by Sheriff Principal Taylor showed that the fees paid by the insurer at the successful conclusion of a compensation claim are significantly less than the fees that the successful party’s solicitor can charge based upon the amount of time the solicitor spent pursuing the case. The report shows that the short-fall can be between 30-50%. This is the reason why many solicitors and claims companies justify taking a large percentage out of a victim’s compensation, at levels as high as 25-30% of the compensation.
Thompsons do not do this - ever.
With Thompsons, it is simple:
- In the unlikely event we are unable to secure compensation for you, you will not be required to pay a single penny for anything, whether that is for our fees or any outlays we may incur pursuing the case such as costs for medical and other expert reports
- When we succeed in securing compensation for clients who instruct us to pursue their claim directly, the maximum amount you will be required to contribute towards our fees is 20% of your damages*
