What is a no win no fee claim?

Behind every claim for compensation is an individual who has suffered physically and emotionally,  and may be facing drastic changes to their future. At The Compensation Experts, we believe everyone is entitled to justice.

A no win no fee* claim, also known as a conditional fee agreement, is a simple concept that essentially means that if your claim for compensation is unsuccessful, you won’t have to pay a penny in legal fees.  You’ll only pay your solicitor a fee if you win your personal injury claim. If your lawyer takes on your case and you aren’t successful, you won’t pay them any legal fees.

You’ll only pay your solicitor a fee if you win your personal injury claim. If your lawyer takes on your case and you aren’t successful, you won’t pay them any legal fees.

Top-quality legal support should be available to everyone. If you’re injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, our no win no fee solicitors can help you claim any compensation you’re entitled to, putting justice within your reach.

*Typically, customers pay 25% including VAT of the compensation amount that is recovered by our third-party law firms, although this is subject to your individual circumstances and the actual fee may be more or less than this. Terminations fees may apply if you do not keep the terms of the agreement.

How do no win no fee* claims work?

Your solicitor will set up a conditional fee agreement with you.  This is your contract with them and will set out what deductions they may take from your compensation award if you win your case.  These deductions will  typically include:

  • An insurance premium for any legal protection required to handle your claim on a no win no win fee basis.
  • A ‘success fee’ for winning the claim.
  • Any shortfall in legal costs after the other side have contributed

How much will I have to pay if I win a no win no fee claim?

All of our third-party law firms offer a no win no fee service which means that you won’t pay a penny if they don’t win your case. Typically, customers pay 25% including VAT of the compensation amount that is recovered by our third-party law firms, although this is subject to your individual circumstances and the actual fee may be more or less than this. For example, you may be required to pay an additional fee for other costs such as after-the-event (ATE) insurance.

Termination fees may apply.

No win no fee* FAQs and facts

Providing you’re honest with the information you discole and keep the conditions of your agreement, if your claim is not successful then you won’t have to pay either your lawyer’s fees or those of the other party.

Unfortunately, there is no set time limit within which a compensation claim must be settled.

In general, the length of time your claim will take to resolve will depend on numerous factors, such as the severity of your injuries and whether or not the defendant admits, disputes, or outright denies liability for your accident. As a rule, the more complex your claim, the longer it will take to be resolved.

Your solicitor will be able to give you a rough time estimate based on the circumstances of your claim; however, most compensation claims will take an average of at least 6 months to be resolved.

Of course, like with any compensation claim, there are several things you can do in the aftermath of an accident to strengthen and expedite your no win no fee personal injury claim:

  1. Report your accident to the responsible body. This may be your employer, your local authority, or the owner or manager of the facility. An initial report may be made verbally, but you should always follow this up in writing and keep a copy of the report for yourself.
  2. Take photographs of the accident site and make notes of any other influencing conditions (e., whether it was raining or at night) that can help provide evidence for your claim.
  3. Take contact details from any witnesses who saw or heard your accident. Your lawyer may contact them in the future to provide information to substantiate your account. It’s also useful to have contact details of anyone you know of who has had an accident at the same location (e., a car crash on the same stretch of road or food poisoning after eating at a particular restaurant).
  4. Keep receipts for any expenses you have incurred as the result of your accident, such as transport costs, medical treatment (and reasonable private medical expenses), prescriptions, and if you’ve needed to replace personal items damaged in the accident.
  5. Maintain a daily account of how you feel both physically and emotionally, as well as any events related to your injury in the accident. This diary will be a useful record to show the impact your injury has had on your life.

As with most standard compensation claims, you’ll have three years from the date of your injury to begin your claims process, though there are exceptions to this rule which can include:

  • Industrial illness claims
  • Medical negligence claims
  • Claims involving children under the age of 18
  • Claims where the victim lacks the mental capacity to pursue the claim by themselves.

With claims such as these, the time limit may be extended, cover a three year period from when the symptoms first appeared, or have no time limit at all.

In April 2013 the government brought in changes to no win no fee personal injury claims in England and Wales.  These were called  the Jackson Reforms.  Before the reforms, the losing side’s insurers usually paid all the legal costs involved. This meant that if won your claim, you’d keep all the compensation awarded to you.

Today, solicitors can still offer a no win no fee service but it means that they may take out legal protection insurance and charge you a success fee if you win your case. But don’t worry there are no upfront charges and your solicitor will explain everything before you go ahead.

Our no win no fee injury solicitors will work hard to get you the most compensation possible, and as soon as they can, they’ll give you an estimate of how much your compensation could be.

Of course, if you don’t win your case, you won’t pay anything. For more information about personal injury lawyers and no win no fee, take a look at The Law Society.
