I have seen claims companies on TV advising that I could keep 100% of compensation. Why do you not do this?

Most of these claims companies are based in England, where the situation regarding expenses is different to that of Scotland. In England, the costs which are awarded by the court include a success fee which must be paid by the Defendant.

This extra payment, which is not permitted in Scotland, allows companies to provide this service. The situation in England is currently subject to a Government review, and is likely to be changed in due course.
