Disbursements - Any Extra Costs?

In addition to your solicitor's costs there are other expenses involved in litigation known as disbursements. These are court fees, fees for medical reports and the fees for hiring a barrister should the case proceed to trial.

All of these costs are recoverable from the other side. However, as for solicitor's fees, in the event that the case is lost, it will be your responsibility as a claimant to pay them. As before though, this uncertainty is usually overcome by purchasing insurance.
