Conditional Fee Agreements are usually referred to as 100% no win, no fee agreements. These were first introduced in 1998, to ensure that even those in financial hardship have access to justice. These types of agreements are used in various civil litigation situations, including clinical negligence cases and personal injury claims. If you’re claiming compensation and the company you are using state they offer a ‘100% no win, no fee’ agreement, you can expect the following to apply:
- There will be no hidden costs
- No money is needed upfront
- If you don’t win, you don’t pay a penny
What can I claim?
If you’ve been involved in a road accident, injured at work or suffered from medical negligence, you may be wondering what you can claim compensation for. Here’s a rough guide:
- You can claim ‘General Damages’ – these relate to pain and suffering or ‘loss of amenity’, for example, if your injury limits your ability to take part in leisure activities. If you’ve suffered permanent injury, you could also claim loss of earnings
- You can also claim for ‘Special Damages’ – these relate to the following:
- medical and prescription costs
- special care expenses
- travel expenses
- costs of care
- insurance excess
It’s important to ensure that you keep receipts for any special damages or extra expenses you may incur as these will be needed as evidence for your claim.
