Denise Hanshaw v National Law Partners Ltd - refund of £600
A former Client of Liverpool based National Law Partners has been refunded £600.00 in respect of the success fee deducted from her compensation.
Denise instructed National Law Partners (NLP) in April 2018 in connection with an accident she had at work. She had been walking around the hospital grounds where she worked and stood on some wood that was on the floor. As she did that the wood gave way, and Denise fell down a six foot drop. The wood had been covering an old passage way that led to the hospital.
Her case subsequently settled with National Law Partners obtaining her a settlement of £7000.00 in gross compensation, with NLP also obtaining legal costs of £2526.00 plus disbursements.
Denise received £4803.12 into her bank account following deductions from NLP totalling £2196.88, representing a success fee of £1750.00 and ATE premium of £446.88.
Following instructions to Checkmylegalfees.com, requests were made for paperwork and bills relating to Denise's claim.
Checkmylegalfees.com identified that the success fee uplift deducted from Denise's compensation should have been applied against the legal costs recovered by NLP, an offer to settle Mrs Hanshaw's claim was submitted by return to NLP.
A settlement was subsequently agreed with Denise receiving a refund of £600.00 plus her legal costs in full.
I'm shocked thank you so much I thought it might take as long as my claim took over 2 years.
I got in touch with Checkmylegalfees.com after waiting over 2 years for my claim to be finalised. Within 5 months I have received all what is owed to me, and nothing deducted from it. No having to call for updates on my case. I highly recommend Checkmylegalfees.com they are very professional and very quick.
Myself and my partner both lost our jobs after we were furloughed has killed us financially. Thank you so much, Christmas will be a bit brighter this year.Denise Hanshaw, 16/11/20
