What is No Win No Fee?

Taking legal action against another party is a daunting experience that shouldn’t be done alone. The process of gathering evidence to put together a case to be presented in court is one that should only be completed by a legal professional. Before ‘no win, no fee’ arrangements were permitted, the legal system was only open to the wealthy or the less well off in society. Legal aid was available to people who couldn’t afford to fund their own case. However, the financial aid on offer was rationed and strictly means tested which meant that a lot of people were unable to afford to use the legal system at all.

Under section 58 of the Courts and Legal Services Act 1990, Conditional Fee Arrangements were introduced, but ‘no win, no fee’ arrangements were not permitted until 1995. In 1995 it became legal for lawyers to fight a claim on a no win, no fee basis and this essentially meant that:

  • You don’t have to pay any money up front
  • If you lose your case you won’t have to pay anything at all

Initially, if you won your case then the success fee (paid to your lawyer) was taken from your compensation. However, in 1999 this was changed and it became payable by the losing party. More changes to the system in 2013 however, meant that nowadays, once again, the success fee must come from the compensation that you have been awarded and can be as much as 25% of the total.

What happens if I win?

If you win your claim then you don’t pay any legal costs – as these are covered by the losing party – but you are liable to pay your solicitor’s success fee, which could be as much as 25% of your compensation.

What happens if I lose?

If you lose then you still won’t pay any legal costs, nor will you be liable for the other party’s costs because they will all be covered by ATE (After the Event) Insurance. This insurance will be taken out at the beginning of the legal process and helps make the legal system much more affordable because there’s no need to empty your bank account in order to pursue a claim.

  • What type of injuries can I claim for?
  • To make this clear, you do not have to sustain a serious injury to be entitled to your compensation. In law you are fully entitled to be compensated for any injury arising out of a non-fault accident which you have sustained or received.

  • How much compensation will I get typically?
  • This certainly depends on the extent of your injury or injuries you will be advised about the likely or possible compensation.

  • Is there a time limit on submitting a claim for personal injury or injuries?
  • There is a statutory limit or bar of three years from the date of the incident/accident. A claim can be submitted at any stage during this period.

  • How long will a claim for personal injuries take to settle ...i need to know?
  • In essence this will mostly depend on the type/nature of the injury involved. Typically injuries should be resolved and settled within a six to twelve month period, but this is not in every case, this is most cases. We will attempt to manage your expectations and attempt to realistically advise you every step of the way.

  • Is there a need to have my injuries looked at by my GP or local hospital?
  • It is in most cases or usually beneficial to have a written record of the injuries which have occurred either at your GP or hospital it is not essential though. The matter remains if you have not been to visit your GP or hospital it should not prevent you from making a claim we must make that clear.

  • Who will provide legal representation for me in my claim for personal injuries?
  • Your representation will be provided by our specialist personal injury solicitors. All who represent us must have agreed to our exceptional service standards.

  • Is there a possibility that I will be compensated for losses other than injuries?
