No Win No Fee

What is No Win No Fee?

No Win No Fee is also called Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). This is an agreement between the client and lawyer which means that the client doesn't have to pay their fee if they don’t win the case. This also means that the client doesn’t have to pay any costs upfront. Any fee will be paid only if you win the compensation and that too from the compensation amount which can't exceed more than 25% of the amount generally.

What is Legal aid?

Legal aid has been replaced by the No Win No Fee agreement since the year 2000.

Legal aid is capitalized by the government which helps people to pay for legal costs so that they can get a fair hearing. Even though this is no longer possible for personal injury cases, it can be used for other legal cases such as medical carelessness involving children.

In order to be able to receive legal aid, you have to prove that you can’t manage to pay for legal representation on your own.

How does No Win No Fee work?

No Win No Fee lawyers will be able to handle most of the claim on your behalf, leaving you with the time to concentrate on recovering from your injury. They’ll keep inform you and update you with any progress and will be on-hand to give you help and advice if you need it.

How much do I pay my lawyer if I win my case?

If you win your case, your lawyer will take a small percentage fee from the compensation you’re awarded, but this is agreed between you before they begin work on your case – in most cases, it will be up to 25% of the money you receive.

There are no hidden fees – the main preference is to make sure you get the money you need for your recovery, so you don’t need to worry about all your compensation being taken up by legal fees and solicitors’ costs.

What happens if I lose my case?

If you don’t win, you won’t need to pay your lawyer. This removes any economic risk to you when making a personal injury claim. They’ll take out i.e. is ATE insurance, which covers your legal fees if you lose your claim.

What happens if my case is abandoned?

Some cases are neglected part way through a claim; for instance, it may become apparent following expert evidence that the chances of you winning your claim are far lower than first thought. Costs already incurred if your case is dropped and  ATE insurance will also cover the legal fees.

Termination fees

If your case doesn’t proceed because you don’t cooperate fully with your solicitor by then termination fees may apply:-

This fee will be based on time spent on your claim, but you don’t need to worry about it as long as you comply with the things that your lawyer asks you to do.

You can check your household insurance policy – you may find it comprise legal expenses insurance which will cover some or all of a personal injury claim.

Claim on someone else’s behalf with No Win No Fee

Yes, you can. In several cases, the injured person is unable to make a compensation claim because they’re too young; or they might be so seriously injured that they’re mentally incapable of giving instructions and understanding what’s happening.
