One sure thing is that in a no-win no-fee, you only pay your lawyer’s fee if your claim for personal injury or medical malpractice is successful. You won’t have to pay your attorney’s legal expenses if they take your case and you lose.
Instead of concentrating on paying for a claim after an accident or injury, you should concentrate on getting better.
And note that a No Win No Fee arrangement, often known as a conditional fee agreement, implies that there is no financial risk to you, allowing you to focus on more vital matters.

The way No Win No Fee work?
No Win No Fee agreements were introduced into law to give people who couldn’t afford legal representation the chance to access the justice they were entitled to. This means that everyone is now able to make a compensation claim after being injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault.
This No Win No Fee solicitors will take a success fee from the compensation you are awarded for a successful claim in the form of a percentage of your damages.
And then this could be up to 25% but it won’t be more than that, except in cases of road traffic accidents. Changing laws mean our solicitors will now take a payment of 30% of the final compensation amount plus VAT for all road traffic accident claims.
This percentage, and any other costs will be explained to you before beginning your claim so you won’t have to worry about any unexpected costs.
Your solicitor may take out an insurance policy – known as ‘after the event’ insurance and on your behalf. This will cover costs such as court fees. If your claim is successful, the cost of this policy will usually be deducted from your final compensation amount.
Finally, it’s like this anytimeyou make a No Win No Fee claim, you will typically claim against the insurer of the person or organization responsible for your accident. This means you won’t be claiming directly against the individual or company, which can be reassuring in certain cases – particularly those involving workplace injuries.
