If you have been reading about making compensation claims and how the process goes ahead, you’ll no doubt have come across the term ‘no-win, no-fee’. This immediately leads to the crucial question, ‘What is no-win, no-fee?’
Put simply, it is a way of making a claim to seek compensation for any injuries you received in an accident that was not your fault. Moreover, that accident must have been someone else’s fault for this type of claim to be made.
What is no-win, no-fee and how does it work?
The idea is to be able to claim compensation by enlisting a lawyer to help you. However, instead of having to pay them for their services regardless of the outcome, you will not have to foot the bill for solicitors’ services in the event your claim does not reach a successful conclusion.
For many people, this removes a crucial barrier to the idea of making a claim in the first place. Think about how you feel following an accident. Perhaps someone drove into your car and caused you serious leg injuries. Maybe you were knocked down using a pedestrian crossing, even though the lights had changed in your favour. Whatever happened to you, it would be wrong for you to have to worry about paying legal fees whatever the outcome of your claim was. Your aim is to get well and to get on with your life, while still having a chance to be compensated if your injuries were caused by a third party.
