What is No Win, No Fee?

Also known as a conditional fee agreement, no win no fee is the most common way of making a personal injury claim.

It allows you to claim for compensation without any financial risk. If your claim is unsuccessful, you won’t pay a penny in legal fees, either to your solicitor or your opponents.

How Does No Win No Fee Work?

When you hire our solicitors, we will take out an ‘After the Event’ (ATE) insurance policy on your behalf. The cost of the insurance is deferred until the end of the claim, so there’s nothing to pay up front.

If your claim is unsuccessful, this policy will pay your opponent’s fees and write itself off.

If your claim is successful, your opponent will pay most of your legal costs. The insurance premium and any remaining costs will be deducted from your settlement.

This removes all the financial risk of making a claim and means you’ll only ever pay when a claim is successful.

How Much Compensation Could I Get From a No Win No Fee Claim?

Each no win no fee claim is different. The compensation you could receive will depend on:

  • Loss of earnings both current and future
  • Cost of medical treatment and rehabilitation
  • Any modifications to your home and vehicles
  • Medical prescriptions

As well as;

  • How your injuries affect your life
  • The amount of pain and suffering you’ve experienced
  • The effects on your mental wellbeing

How Long Do I Have to Make a No Win No Fee Compensation Claim?

In most cases, you have three years from the date your injury happened.

There are some exceptions to this;

  • Children – you can claim on their behalf at any point up until their 18th birthday. After that, they have three years to claim for themselves.
  • Accidents abroad – time limits vary and are often much shorter than three years.
  • A person who lacks mental capacity – times limits don’t apply.

Regardless of time limits, it’s best to get in touch with a personal injury solicitor as soon as you can. The sooner you start a claim, the clearer the events that lead up to your accident will be in your mind. It will also be much easier to gather the evidence needed to make a successful claim.

How Long Does a No Win No Fee Claim Take?

The time is takes a no win no fee claim to settle varies from case to case.

It depends on;

  • How complex your case is
  • The type and severity of your injuries
  • If you can identify the responsible party
  • Whether or not they accept liability

For example, a simple broken bone case could be settled in weeks. Spinal and brain injury cases can take years to settle. This is because it takes time to understand how those injuries will affect the rest of your life.

    FAQs

    As we’ve mentioned, if your claim is successful, your opponent will cover most legal fees.  Any costs not paid by the other side will be deducted from your final settlement. These might include;

    • Your no win no fee insurance policy premium
    • Some legal fees that we can’t recover from the other side, and
    • A ‘success fee’ which we’ll discuss with you in advance

    Your no win no fee solicitor will discuss these costs with you in advance so you’ll know what to expect.

    If your claim isn’t successful, you won’t pay a penny. Your insurance policy will cover your opponent’s legal fees.

    The vast majority of personal injury claims are funded on a no win no fee (or conditional fee) agreement. That said, there are 3 other options;

    • Legal expense insurance – some house or car insurance policies include legal cover. You could use this to help with any legal costs.
    • Legal aid – Only available in cases where an infant has suffered a neurological birth injury, during pregnancy or within 8 weeks of giving birth.
    • Trade Unions – Some trade union memberships include legal protection insurance. If you’re a member of a trade union, speak to your rep, they can check for you. If you have insurance, we can check if the policy offers the right protection for a no win, no fee claim (not all do). If you do have cover, you won’t have to pay the insurance premium once the claim settles. This means you’ll get to keep more of your compensation.

    If you’re not happy with how your current solicitor or law firm is handling your claim, then yes.

    That said, you should talk to them and address your concerns first. If after that, you still want a second opinion, we’ll be happy to offer advice. You can then decide if changing law firms is the right choice for you.

    If you decide that you’d like us to take over your case, we’ll take care of the whole transition for you. You won’t have to worry about a thing.
