Conditional Fee Agreements are more commonly known as no win, no fee agreements. No win no fee claims nationwide were introduced in 1998, when it was decided to withdraw Legal Aid for personal injury cases. They were primarily designed to broaden access to justice for those without funds to pay expensive legal fees, whatever part of the country they live in.
No win no fee claims nationwide are typically used in all sorts of civil litigation whether that’s a personal injury claim, a complaint against an employer, or in many clinical negligence cases, the NHS.
With no win, no fee there are no upfront legal costs and if you don’t win your case, you don’t pay any legal fees.

No win no fee accident compensation
Compensation can be claimed for general damages, which can be difficult to calculate. They include pain and suffering (for both the initial injury and for any continuing suffering or disability) and loss of amenity which is loss of the enjoyment of life, for example if you can no longer partake in a leisure activity due to your injury.
No win, no fee compensation may also be awarded for loss of earnings caused by permanent injury. Future losses are also included in accident claims calculated according to the estimated annual loss to arrive at a fair figure for compensation.
