Contingency Fee Agreement

Munro Flowers and Vermaak act on a “no-win, no-fee” basis in terms of the Contingency Fee Act 66 of 1997.
The practical effect of a contingency fee agreement between attorney and client is that the attorney accepts the risk of being unsuccessful and as such will only be entitled to charge a fee upon the successful finalisation of the case.

By virtue of this, MFV will pay all the disbursements and costs necessary in order to successfully prosecute a claim on your behalf, which costs may include obtaining hospital and medical records, expert medical advice, securing experts to testify at your trial and advocates well versed in personal injury litigation.

Upon the successful finalisation of your case, as a success fee, we will be entitled to charge up to double our normal hourly rate, to a maximum of 25% of the capital award, whichever is lesser. We also proceed to recover the expenses incurred on your behalf which will then be reimbursed to you in the extent that we achieve such recovery.

Should your claim be unsuccessful, no fees or disbursements are payable by you to MFV for the services rendered.
The contingency fee agreement entered into with MFV is in strict compliance with the Contingency Fee Act 66 of 1997. Contingency fee agreements are one of several manners in which a claimant may finance their claim being handled by MFV.

Further information on other options will be fully discussed in your initial consultation with your attorney.

Medical Negligence

What is medical negligence?

medical negligence claims arise when the negligent treatment or omission of medical practitioners such as doctors or nurses, leads to a person suffering harm as a result thereof. A medical practitioner is considered to be negligent when the treatment they provide deviates from what is reasonably expected of a medical practitioner in those circumstances, and the harm it has caused was preventable. The outcome of the patient’s condition must be causally linked to the negligent actions of the medical practitioner.

Professional Indemnity Claims


Just like any person, an attorney can be sued and will be held liable to pay compensation to his/her own client if they do not prosecute the client’s case timeously or under-settles the client’s case.

Road Accident Fund Claims

(Third Party Claims)

These are claims for compensation arising from the negligent driving of a motor vehicle, for any loss or damage suffered as a result of bodily injuries sustained, or the death of a breadwinner (dependant’s claim).
