What does ‘no win no fee’ mean?
The No Win No Fee system was introduced in 1995 and describes the agreement that is made between a law firm and their clients when making a personal injury claim.
When claiming on a no win no fee basis, you don’t have to worry about paying any upfront legal fees. If your claim for personal injury compensation is unsuccessful, you won’t have to pay your solicitor for the work they have done.
Also known as a conditional fee agreement, the no win no fee system was put in place as an alternative to legal aid for accident claims. By removing the financial risk from the claims process, it helps to level the playing field and provide access to justice for many people who would otherwise be unable to seek compensation.
Can I make a no win no fee claim?
Before agreeing to accept your case on a no win no fee basis, your solicitor will first need to assess your case. This assessment is conducted over the phone during a free consultation.
The solicitor will ask you a few questions about the accident and the injuries you have sustained. They will need to know what type of accident you have had, when the accident happened, who you believe was at fault and what type of injuries were caused by this accident.
With the information gathered from this consultation, your solicitor will be able to determine if you have valid grounds to make a personal injury claim. If you do have valid grounds and are eligible to make a claim, the solicitor will offer to take your case on a no win no fee basis.
Nothing to pay if your claim is unsuccessful
As mentioned above, if your claim is not successful, you have nothing to pay. You are protected against having to pay your solicitor’s costs under the terms of the no win no fee agreement.
You only pay any legal fees if your no win no fee solicitor wins your claim. This is known as the success fee and is capped by law at a maximum of 25% of the compensation. This fee is agreed with you in advance and is deducted from the amount of compensation that is awarded.
There are some rare exceptions where the solicitors may not be able to offer you a no win no fee service. If for any reason they cannot offer you this agreement, they will make this absolutely clear right from the start.
They will explain the reason why and outline the service they can provide. You will then be able to make an informed decision on whether or not you would like to proceed with your claim.
