How we will assess your case - claims against public authorities

Our team are experts in bringing civil compensation claims against all types of public authorities and our services are in very high demand.  Our experts assess every one of the hundreds of enquiries that we receive each month and our case review panel decides which ones we are able to accept based on the prospects of success of each case and our capacity to deal with it. They will also decide which of the various funding options we can offer.

Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to accept every case that we’re contacted about and we have to reject many of the enquiries we receive. In order for us to properly assess your enquiry we will require some basic details, such as your name and contact email as well as some basic information about your case. Providing us with these details is not a guarantee that we will accept your case. 

You will be notified by email about whether your case has been accepted or not but we do not provide reasons if we decide to reject it.
