How your claim will be funded

One of the daunting aspects of making a legal claim is the worry about how you could possibly pay for a lawyer. After all, solicitors cost a lot of money – right?

It is correct that as highly qualified lawyers, solicitors are expensive and most people cannot possibly afford to employ a solicitor. The problem with personal injury claims is that legal aid was withdrawn some years ago, leaving claimants with little choice but to pay their solicitor out of their own pocket – or not make a claim at all.

Which was very unfair and unjust.

STEP IN ‘NO WIN NO FEE’

‘No Win No Fee’ is what it says on the tin: You pay no money up front and if you LOSE the claim you will not have to pay any cash to anyone. Not even your solicitor.

And if you WIN your claim, a part of your compensation will be used to pay your solicitors for the work they have done for you in securing your compensation.

So, No Win No Fee covers the financial risk of making a claim. Importantly, it enables injury victims like you to safely go ahead and claim the compensation you rightly deserve – without sleepless nights worrying about the cost involved.

How does ‘No Win No Fee’ work?

When your firm of solicitors take on your injury claim,  they will arrange for you to sign an agreement called a ‘conditional fee agreement’.  They will explain to you the issue of fees and how the agreement will work for you in practice.

This will depend on whether or not you win your claim:

  • IF YOU WIN

    Assuming you win your injury claim, your solicitor will take what is known as a ‘success fee’ from your compensation award. This will typically be 25% of your compensation, and will always be agreed with your solicitor upfront.

  • IF YOU LOSE

    If you don’t win your claim, you will have absolutely nothing to pay.

    If you’re wondering how your solicitors can afford to take on a case with the risk of losing, your No Win No Fee agreement will be backed up by a legal expenses insurance policy.

    This policy will cover the legal costs and expenses incurred in your claim in the unlikely event it fails.
