If you are injured and it’s not your fault any legal fees, for a lawyer to fight for you to get back any wages you have lost and damages for your injuries, are paid by the person responsible for your injuries.
This is your right.
The government and insurance companies plan to strip you of this right by increasing the small claims limit.* If your injury claim falls below the new small claims limit, you will have to pay for your own legal fees.
If you are a victim of injury – on the road, but also at work or anywhere else – you will have to pay for the legal help you need, and deserve, from your compensation or fight the insurers on your own in your own time.
