 Some FAQs about the no win no fee* process

 Q. What about the eligibility of my case?

A. Concerning eligibility, no win no fee* solicitor will advise a claimant to start a case unless it meets the eligibility criteria.

Q. What are the eligibility criteria?

A. This means the accident must not have been the claimant’s fault, the claimant must have needed medical attention as a result of the injury and it the claim must be made within three years.

Q. Will the solicitor think it’s not worth the effort?

A. Each case is unique so it depends upon the facts. This is why it’s important to make an initial appraisal, check if your claim is eligible and get an estimate of what it may be worth. There’s a good chance that the no win no fee* solicitor will refuse you a ball park opinion.

Q. How much will it cost me?

A. In fact, you can check the eligibility of your claim online with a compensation provider like Accident Advice Helpline, which has a 30-second online test. They can also provide you with an estimate of what your claim might be worth, but do remember it is only an estimate and no win no fee* solicitor would tell you that an estimate is a guarantee of an award. Most compensation providers will not ask you to pay fees up front, at the pre-claim stage.

Q. What am I in for if I start a claim?

A. Under current rules, the losing side pays the legal fees of the winning side, so if you win your case, you have no legal fees to pay. This is what is meant by no win no fee*. The winning fees are often referred to as the “success fee” and they help to make up for the times the solicitor has to pay the other side’s success fee. However, in April, the law changes and the charge structure will be different so make sure to get a quote from your solicitor before you start a claim.

Q. Are there any other costs?

A. There could be court fees and the costs of the medical examination. It may be that you have, or can get insurance to cover these, should your claim not be successful.
