A leading law firm has set up a new service to encourage Bulgarian and Romanian immigrants to cash in on Britain’s compensation culture.
Osbornes Solicitors LLP is offering a tailor-made ‘no win, no fee’ injury claims scheme for the thousands expected to come to Britain when entry controls are lifted at the end of the year.

‘Furthermore, for the vast majority of our clients we operate a policy of NO WIN, NO FEE!’
A Romanian businesswoman said: ‘Most of the new arrivals will be amazed to find that such a thing exists.
