Thompsons’ No Win No Fee lawyers bring peace of mind to the compensation claim process by ensuring that you pay nothing to fund the cost of your legal advice and compensation claim unless your case proves successful.
This means that, whatever the circumstances, unless you win your case, you do not have a single penny to pay. Furthermore, this is not complicated by any hidden costs, caveats or small print. In short, there are no nasty surprises for our No Win No Fee clients.
Costs associated with other funding arrangements
There are other funding arrangement available to help you make a compensation claim, but these often come with a variety of possible costs and fees for which you may be liable.
Depending on the type of case involved, a claim for compensation can involve liability for costs associated with the following:
- Advice and reports from experts such as doctors, psychiatrists, dentists, engineers, firefighters or police officers
- Investigative work, to establish the facts of a case
- Technical research, to prove a product was defective, or to establish the cause of an injury
- Communicating with insurance companies, the court, lawyers acting for the other party and, of course, you
- Negotiating a settlement
- Preparing court documents
- Appearing in court
Without the protection provided by a true No Win No Fee agreement you would be responsible for paying some or all of these items. On top of this, if you lose your case you may not only have to pay your own costs - but the costs of the other side as well.
The advantages of No Win No Fee
A No Win No Fee arrangement is special agreement between you and your lawyer that allows you to make a claim for compensation without having to worry about how to pay for it.
The costs and fees still have to be paid for, but they are covered by an insurance policy so that, if you lose, the insurance company will pay all the legal fees and outlays.
The position is different if you win, and depends on the agreement you have with your lawyer. If we act for you on a No Win No Fee basis and are successful on your behalf we will always try to recover all our costs and outlays from the other side, although on some occasions we will have to recover the balance from you.
Many lawyers offer a No Win No Fee service, but beware; not all No Win No Fee agreements are the same – it really is in your interest to check the small print.
