APIL Guide to Costs and Funding

Commentary

Costs and funding in personal injury cases have undergone dramatic change since the implementation of the Jackson Reforms which abolished the recoverability of ATE and BTE insurance premiums, capped solicitors success fees at 25%, and introduced QOCS, DBAs/contingency fees and fixed recoverable costs.

PI lawyers also faced changes including the extension of portals to cover EL/PL cases.

The purpose of this new Guide is to provide a practical overview of the changes, explaining what impact they will have in practice, together with guidance on how to adopt successful and profitable working methods to thrive in the new regime, as well as ensure work started under the old regime complies with the changes.
