The headline offer that you’ll see when you log onto our site is that we can help you find a personal injury lawyer who can help you make a claim on a no-win, no-fee* basis. We’ll investigate behind the offer and show you what no win, no fee* actually is.
No win, no fee*
When the government removed legal aid from any personal injury case in the 90s many people were left with a difficult decision. Did they try to find the money to pay a lawyer or did they play it safe? Many people understandably took the safe option and as a result missed out on the compensation which could have been crucial in helping them to get back on their feet.
When we started in 2000 we felt that there just had to be another way and we found it in no win, no fee*. This was a very simple way around the problem which effectively removed that risk of making a claim from the client and put it onto our shoulders. That way, if we’re unable to help you win your case then it will be us who are left out of pocket.
Why is it important?
We believe it’s important to offer this and we continue to do so because it reduces the risk of making a claim and builds a bond between us as the law firm and you as our clients. This means that you don’t have to glance at your bank balance before you make a decision on whether or not you should make a claim.
It also builds links between the two sides as we’re in the same situation. Either we win the case or we don’t get paid. That means, for example, that a firm offering no win, no fee* has no incentive to encourage you to make a claim even if you lose. In the traditional fee paying way that could happen as the law firm would get paid either way.Open Claim Calculator
What do you pay?
So what do you pay, how much and when? Well, that depends on the deal you reach with your lawyer but it is common to use a system of taking a slice out of the compensation fund. Generally you should get around 75% of the compensation sum so that nicely swallows up the fee.
