What is No Win No Fee?

Basically, under the "No Win No Fee" (also known as "No Win No Pay" and "No Win No Fee No Catch") arrangement, you may still be required to contribute to the upfront cost of the initial investigative reports and your medical records. These costs are known as "disbursements."

However you generally do not have to pay your solicitor any upfront "professional legal costs" (that is, the hourly rate that a solicitor charges for work done). If your matter successfully settles out-of-court or as a result of a court trial, then the defendant (usually their insurance company) will usually have to pay for your solicitor's professional legal costs. In most cases, the majority of fees are recoverable from the defendant and a gap may be payable by you out of your compensation award.

If you lose your claim, you don't have to pay your solicitor's professional legal costs, but you may be liable to pay the defendant's legal costs. Be wary of any lawyer who guarantees that you won't have to pay the defendant's costs if you lose your case.

Our solicitors are upfront; they will tell you in writing if there are any risks in your case so that you can make an informed decision whether you wish to proceed with legal action.

Legal Costs Agreements

The laws regulating legal costs are complex. Each case is different, and our solicitors will be up-front with you about your rights and obligations.

Solicitors are required by law to disclose the terms and conditions of a No Win No Fee arrangement with you.

Solicitors are also required to provide you with a written Costs Agreement.

You should ask your solicitor any questions you have relating to legal costs and your liability, prior to signing a cost agreement with them. Do not be afraid to ask questions.
