Funding A Cauda Equina Claim

If you are hoping to make a cauda equina claim, you will of course want to know how you are going to fund the legal process. What are the options available? And will you have to spend any money? We take a look at these questions, helping you to understand more about the costs involved in a cauda equina claim.

Costs involved in a cauda equina claim

There are four ways in which you can fund a cauda equina claim:

1. No win no fee – a no win no fee agreement is also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). The majority of our cauda equina claims are run on this basis. It ensures that you do not pay anything should you lose your case. If you win, the other side will pay your costs, although your solicitor’s success fee will be deducted from your compensation. However, this is capped at 25%, so you will receive at least two thirds of your final settlement.

2. Legal expenses insurance (LEI) – some insurance policies have legal expenses insurance attached. This may cover the cost of a cauda equina claim. Many people do not realise they have LEI so you will need to check your insurance policies (such as household contents insurance) to make sure.

3. Trade union – some trade unions provide legal representation for its members. If you are a member of a trade union, you will need to check whether it could fund your cauda equina claim.

4. Private – if the above options are not suitable, you can always pay for your cauda equina claim on a private basis.

Will I have to pay any money?

With a no win no fee agreement and legal expenses insurance, you will be financially protected. You will not have to pay any money out of your own pocket if you lose. If you win, deductions may be made from your compensation settlement, but this will not happen until your damages have been received. Therefore you do not stand to lose anything, but you could gain a great deal from making a cauda equina claim.
