FAQs about working with a No Win, No Fee lawyer after you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault
Are you considering making a compensation claim?
You may come across the term “No Win, No Fee” when researching our law firm. For many, this can be a confusing concept, so we’ve compiled some answers to common questions about No Win, No Fee solicitors to give you complete peace of mind and understanding about the process.
What is No Win, No Fee?
No Win, No Fee is a conditional fee agreement that stipulates you don’t have to pay anything unless we win your case. We have over 190 solicitors working around the country, and all of them undertake cases on this basis.
But then how do you get paid?
We receive our “fees” only if we “win”, it’s that simple. We adopt this policy to demonstrate our commitment to getting a successful outcome from every case. We thoroughly and honestly assess each case we undertake, and only take on those in which we feel there has been genuine negligence and wrongdoing.
No Win, No Fee also means that because there’s nothing payable upfront, it’s a more affordable option for many accident victims who may be suffering with unexpected costs for treatment, or a loss of income due to having to take time off work for recovery. For example, if you’ve been in a road accident in Mid Sussex and have to pay for things like chiropractic treatment or physiotherapy, you can spend your money on recovering, not legal fees.
How do I know if I can work with a No Win, No Fee lawyer?
