Can I get Legal Aid for my Personal Injury Claim?
The Legal Services Agency Northern Ireland (LSANI) provides funding to help people who qualify to get legal advice and representation.
If you are unsure as to whether or not you qualify for Legal Aid, call us today on 028 71 229 343 and we will be able to advise you of your eligibility.
Legal Aid for a Personal Injury Claim / Accident Claim is called “Civil Legal Aid.” The granting of Civil Legal Aid is determined by the Northern Ireland Legal Services Agency. They will assess your financial eligibility and the merits of your case and decide whether or not you meet the criteria for Legal Aid funding.
The vast majority of Personal Injury Claims are settled without the need for Court Proceedings and do not require Legal Aid funding.

Will my Case go to Court?
Most personal injury cases are settled without the need for Court Proceedings. In most cases responsibility (or liability) for the accident is accepted by the other party and we are able to negotiate the maximum compensation settlement for our client. There is therefore no need to take the case to Court.
However, if the other party refuse to admit fault (or accept liability) for the accident or do not make a sufficient compensation proposal then will we consider issuing Court Proceedings on your behalf.
How Much Does It Cost? – Compensation Claims
We provide a Free Consultation with an expert to discuss your case. This is a no obligations consultation with our team, in person or over the phone, to discuss your case. This means it costs nothing to talk to the Personal Injury Solicitors Derry at McGee O’Kane.
We begin by sending the Insurance Company or “at fault” party a Letter of Claim advising that you have sustained injury due to their negligence. The accident will then be investigated and they will decide whether the Insurance Company or “at fault” party are willing to take responsibility for the accident that caused your injuries.
If they are prepared to take responsibility for the accident we will obtain medical reports to show the extent of your injuries and then begin negotiations to obtain the maximum compensation amount for you. In this case our legal fees are paid entirely by the Insurance Company so that making a claim costs you nothing.
If they are not prepared to accept responsibility then the next step is to issue proceedings and bring the case to Court. There may be costs involved in bringing the case to Court, such as Court Fees and Barristers Fees. We can apply for Legal Aid on your behalf to cover these costs.
However, the vast majority of cases are settled prior to Court and there are no legal costs due. In those cases it will cost you nothing to claim and you will keep 100% of your Compensation.
Will I Have to Give Evidence in Court?
In some cases people can be scared of going to Court as they are worried that they will have to speak in Court. This happens in a very small percentage of cases. Most cases are settled without having to go to Court at all. If your case does go to Court a huge number of Personal Injury Claims will settle before the Hearing, as the Insurance Company could make an improved compensation proposal or accept liability.
In short, issuing Court Proceedings does not mean that the case will end up in front of a Judge as cases often settle right up to the morning of the Hearing.
“I could not believe that I received £8,500 in compensation. I came to Michael McGee on a whim and he and the team dealt with my case. I did not think I would get anything and I did not think a Solicitor would even take the case on. My case was unusual and I was not sure if there was any point in pursuing it. I kept 100% of my compensation as well. I am really grateful to Michael, he rovided a great service. I did not have to do anything and only visited the office a couple of times.” I… Read more »
