Solicitors’ Legal Fees

Solicitor’s fees depend on the complexity of the case, and a solicitor needs to examine your case and speak with you before they can give you an estimate.

Solicitors can enter into “no win, no fee” agreements with clients, but they are strictly prohibited from advertising these agreements.


No Win No Fee Explained

This fee arrangement means that you will not pay for a solicitor’s services if the case fails. If your case succeeds either by way of settlement outside of court or in court, legal fees will apply. A no win no fee agreement gives you a legal avenue to pursue a claim regardless of your financial status.

Solicitors in Ireland are strictly prohibited from advertising no win no fee services. If you encounter a website that is advertising and offering no win no fee legal services, this is probably either: 

  1. An unregulated “claims harvesting site,” which offers to put you in touch with a solicitor, who is breaching the Solicitors Acts that govern their profession, or
  2. A solicitor who is flouting the laws regulating their profession.

In some cases, you may have to pay costs such as court stamp duty and medical costs even if your case is unsuccessful and you have been offered a no win no fee agreement. You may also be liable to pay the other side’s legal fees if your case is unsuccessful.

You may take legal action after  you have been involved in an accident or injured because of somebody else’s actions or negligence*.

Personal injury claims generally involve:

  • A plaintiff or claimant  – this is the person making the claim (you).
  • A defendant – the person(s) you are making the claim against.
  • Your solicitor 
  • PIAB – Personal Injury Assessment Board (often called the Injuries Board). PIAB assesses most  personal injury claims before any further steps are considered.

What Are the Common Injuries Sustained In Accidents?


For every type of accident, whether a car crash, a slip and fall, or a product related injury, there is a wide array of injury types that can occur. Every part of the body is susceptible to different forms of injury and the forces applied upon the body when an accident occurs will dictate the kind of injury as well as the severity.

As a personal injury law firm with over 50 years experience representing injured parties Ireland we understand the nature of various types of injuries. We are able to articulate the effects they have on a client’s life, and the types of medical care required, in the context of a personal injury case.
