  • The claim process

  1. Carry out a free initial consultation. We will ask you about what has happened, the injury and assess the best way to help you.

  2. Contact the insurers of the party who was at fault for your accident to seek their agreement to fund early rehabilitation and also seek an admission of liability.

  3. Seek an early interim payment to help relieve any financial pressure and to fund medical and rehabilitation treatment as well as expenses whilst we finalise your claim.

  4. If they do not accept responsibility, we will gather additional evidence to prove their fault. Evidence will also be needed to support your claim for damages: this can include independent medical expert evidence, witnesses who can attest to how much help you have needed after the accident, and anyone else we feel would support your case.

  5. If your claim is successful we will fight to get the best possible compensation that you deserve. You’ll then receive your compensation.


  • The legal fees: "no win, no fee agreement"

In France the "no win, no fee agreement" is possible but is different from the US or the UK template. The French laws compell the lawyer to bill fixed fees, but on the other side the result fees must be limited. In our law firm it is 10%, not more.

What's more, we always ask for the third party to refund what you may have been compelled to pay due to the accident including your legal fee

One of the best reasons to choose our law firm is because we are experienced in dealing with all kinds of claims, from the simple to the complicated.
