No-win, no-fee is the system that replaced legal aid. It means that if you claim compensation and do not win your case, you do not have to pay any legal fees.
This means that there is no financial risk to you. As a result, if you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you do not have to worry about whether you can afford to claim compensation.
