When people talk about "No win no fee" they rarely
fully understand the concept. It is a fairly new method
of obtaining legal representation and there are still
many myths that need to be debunked.
Most people have a suspicion that there are hidden
costs or some additional fees that will need to be met
and that there is no such thing as FREE LEGAL ADVICE.
This puts many people off pursuing a compensation
The truth is that in England and Wales, a good
personal injury solicitor will deal with a compensation
claim of the following basis:
IF YOU WIN YOUR CASE:
The losing party’s insurance company will pay
your legal bill.
You will receive 100% of your damages /
IF YOU LOSE YOUR CASE:
The solicitor agrees to drop the legal bill
and not charge you
You will receive NO compensation.
In either situation you do not have any risk of
incurring financial liabilities that cannot be
recovered. Your solicitor will only take the case on if
there is a reasonable chance of winning it.
It is worth pointing out that you may have legal
expenses insurance which will replace the need for a no
win no fee agreement. You may also have cover through
your Trade Union. Call us today for free advice on your
