No Win No Fee Solicitors
Accident Claim Solicitors offer No Win No Fee arrangements to clients in most cases. The benefit of a no win no fee solicitors is that clients do not need to go through marketing or referral companies to secure the best possible representation. Here at Accident Claim Solicitors you deal directly with personal injury experts so there no need for middlemen to take a chunk of your compensation.
What is No Win No Fee?
The term ‘No Win No Fee’ typically refers to “Conditional Fee Agreements” (CFAs). If a claim on a Conditional Fee Agreement is unsuccessful the solicitor receives no payment for their work under the CFA, hence the term No Win No Fee. So therefore should you lose the case there is nothing for you to pay in most cases or unless agreed in advance.
If the claim is successful the solicitor claims a fee that will reflect their risk in taking the case on a CFA.
When does No Win No Fee apply?
Personal injury and medical negligence compensation claims are the most common forms of litigation that can be offered on a no win no fee basis.
Our expert solicitors are happy to offer a No Win No Fee arrangement in appropriate cases because they are able to assess the chances of success with the highest possible degree of accuracy. There is absolutely no need to go to an accident claims company or someone who is not a personal injury solicitors because this could harm your chances of winning and reduce the level of compensation that you could be entitled to.
Unless your claim is for personal injury, No Win No Fee is not available for claims with a value of less than £10,000.
Why do I have to pay a Success Fee?
A first class personal injury service requires the involvement of various personal injury experts and evidence gathering which all needs to be handled by a highly experienced legal team. Delivering this comprehensive legal service comes at a cost, so the financial risk of pursing any personal injury claim can be great.
Therefore in all types of accident claims we carry out a risk assessment and the relevant Success Fee reflects the risks associated with pursuing your claim type. The risks to any claim include factors such as:-
- When you first instruct us, all available evidence has not yet been seen
- Records (such as medical records) may not support your claim
- Expert reports may be required and there is a risk that expert opinion may not support your claim
- The future risk of failing to beat an offer made by the opponent at court
- The court may prefer the evidence of your opponent
