Can any claim be made on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis?
Most solicitors will review this on a case-by-case basis to confirm whether they will take each given case on a ‘no win no fee’ arrangement.
How does a ‘no win, no fee claim’ work?
Your ‘no win, no fee’ lawyer will assess the prospects of your case, reviewing your details and options. All funding options will be discussed and it will then be decided if you will be best supported with a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement or not.
During your initial consultation, you must provide accurate and detailed information about your claim. This may involve records, documents, and evidence that supports the claim you are putting forward.
Do I have to pay anything upfront for my ‘no win, no fee’ injury claim?
Some solicitors might charge you upfront for the cost of a medical report, court fees, and other expenses that are necessary in order to proceed with your case. We’re always open and upfront about our charges, so you know what to expect and you don’t get any nasty surprises.
We may also recommend that we take out an insurance policy, at no upfront charge to you, to cover certain expenses.
What happens if I lose my ‘no win, no fee’ claim?
If the claim is unsuccessful, you do not owe a penny to your solicitor. It is only when you are awarded ‘no win, no fee compensation’ that you pay a percentage to your solicitor.
An insurance policy may also have been taken out at the start of your claim to cover other expenses such as obtaining medical records, medical experts fees, and court fees. This will ensure you are not out of pocket in any way.
How much do ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers take?
If your solicitor offers a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement and you accept it, there will be no financial risk to you if you do not win your case.
Once your case has concluded, you will only be expected to contribute to your solicitor’s fees if the case is decided in your favour. These costs are usually a percentage of the compensation that you are awarded, which will be agreed upon before your case commences.
Do all solicitors offer ‘no win, no fee’ agreements?
‘No win, no fee’ deals, also known as conditional fee arrangements, have been a method of financing a claim since 1995. Many solicitors will offer it, although the percentage that they will charge on successful cases and their processes will differ.
Some may also reject your particular case, whilst others may accept it.
Whilst some solicitors may charge to assess whether or not they will take on your case, at Hudgell Solicitors, any initial consultation to evaluate your claim is always free.
