Our no win no fee lawyers are here to help you because there’s no getting round the fact that making a claim for compensation is expensive.
Depending on the type of case involved, a claim for compensation can involve:
- 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
In normal cases you would be responsible for paying for all of these items. On top of this, if you lose your case you not only have to pay your own costs - but the costs of the other side as well.
This is where a No Win No Fee arrangement comes in. It is a 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.
