What Is A No Win No Fee Agreement?
You may already have an insurance policy which would pay for you to bring a legal case. If you think that you may have such a policy, please send us a copy and we can advise you about this.
If you do not already have a legal expenses policy then we will usually act under a conditional fee agreement (CFA) which is often called a “no win no fee” agreement.
This means that we will agree with you that if we are not able to be successful in your case, we will not charge you our fees.
There are other fees involved in pursuing a personal injury case, for example court fees. There are also certain limited circumstances in which you may have to pay the opponent’s legal costs. To protect you against having to pay those fees, we recommend that you take out an after the event (ATE) insurance policy. We can arrange the insurance policy for you and ensure that there are no up front costs.
If you are not successful in your case then you have peace of mind that with the conditional fee agreement and the insurance policy in place you will not have to pay any legal costs.
You will have to make sure that you allow us to do our work properly and that you do not deliberately mislead us. You must co-operate with us and go to any medical examination or court hearing as reasonably required.
How No Win No Fee Works
If you are successful in recovering compensation the opponent will have to pay the majority of your legal fees in addition to your compensation. However, since the Government changed the law on 1st April 2013 a paying party is no longer entirely responsible for all the legal costs and therefore, you will need to make a contribution to your legal fees. This will only be deducted from your compensation at the end of the case so again, there are no up front costs.
Your contribution to the legal costs is restricted to 25% of the compensation for your injuries and past losses. This means that any compensation agreed or awarded for your future losses is ring fenced and therefore protected. The cost of the insurance policy will also be deducted from your compensation at the end of a successful case.
Our solicitors will always aim to get you the most compensation possible.
Using our no win no fee service means you can claim compensation with our team of leading solicitors fighting your corner but with no financial risk to you.
