Funding your claim under a DBA is a fairly straightforward process. It can be used by clients who do not have the benefit of legal expenses insurance, and are unable to fund their claim privately but have a good prospect of their case succeeding. Many go on to bring successful claims.
In essence, a DBA is an agreement for you to pay us a percentage of your compensation or settlement monies in place of our costs. The regulations governing such arrangements set a maximum fee of 35% (including VAT) of the amount that is recovered from your opponent.
If your claim succeeds, you will usually receive 65% of the value of your damages (minus any disbursements you incur, such as the issue fees and barrister fees). If your claim were to fail, you would not have to pay a fee to us.
To see if a DBA is appropriate we will carry out an initial review of your case. If we decide that it has good prospects of success and you wish to fund your claim under a DBA, we will explain exactly how it works and provide you with all of the necessary information before you go on to sign it.
