I was constantly kept up to date. I have used other Solicitors in the past but dealing with Goodmans Law was a whole different experience. I could not have asked for anything more.

Clients are sometimes very concerned about legal fees. However, if your injury has been caused by someone else, our experience is that there is no need for clients to worry.
There are 2 main ways of funding a personal injury claim
These are Conditional Fee Agreement (also known as No Win No Fee) and Legal Expenses Insurance
Legal Expenses Insurance
You may already have insurance to cover legal fees if you have an accident. Legal Expenses Insurance is often attached to an existing insurance policy, such as your buildings or home contents insurance or even your car insurance.
If you have this cover you will need to provide us with your insurance policy details, so that we can ask the insurer's permission to act on your behalf. The relevant policy will be the one which was in force at the date of the alleged negligent act. Once the insurers are satisfied as to the merits of your case, your legal costs will usually be covered under this policy.
Some insurers may tell you that you have to use their panel solicitor. You don’t. You are entitled to choose your own solicitor who is a specialist in personal injury law and not one that has been chosen for you by your insurance company.
No Win No Fee (Conditional Fee Agreement)
At Goodmans Law we are proud to be able to offer clients the facility of funding their personal injury claims by way of a Conditional Fee Agreement, more commonly known as a No Win No Fee Agreement.
Our ability to offer such an agreement will depend entirely upon the legal merits of your claim.
We have also been able to secure the agreement from specialist personal injury barristers to act on a No Win No Fee basis for our clients.
If your claim is successful we can normally recover some or all of your legal costs from your opponent although we will charge you a success fee.
If your claim is unsuccessful we will waive our legal fees.
We will advise you properly about legal fees and funding options once we accept your claim.
