Fixed Fees for Road Traffic Accident Cases

Professional fees for dealing with personal injury cases involving road traffic accidents are set to be ‘capped’, following the decision to adopt a ‘fixed fee’ scale.

Under the new scheme, claims under £10,000 in value, which are settled before proceedings are issued, will earn the solicitor a fee of £1,400. For larger cases, fees will be paid on a sliding scale.

It is hoped that the new system will make settlement of cases more straightforward. Currently, hundreds of cases are still awaiting resolution because of arguments over costs.
