How Much Do No Win No Fee Solicitors Take?
Find out how much your personal injury claim may be worth
Anyone that has suffered an injury or illness as a result of an accident is entitled to make an accident claim if the accident was caused as a result of someone else’s negligence. However, there are many legal costs that are associated with legal claims, which can be off-putting for those who are looking to make a claim.
Therefore, the ‘no-win no-fee’ basis was introduced in order to give claimants a fair chance of getting the compensation they deserve, even if they don’t have the funds to pay any of the upfront fees required.
If you are looking to make a no win no fee claim, contact Beacon Law to get in touch with one of our no win no fee solicitors to discuss your potential claim and receive more information on the no win no fee claims process and the legal aid that we provide.
What is a No Win No Fee claim?
Undertaking an accident claim under a no win no fee basis means that if a law firm or solicitor does not win your legal claim for you, you do not have to pay any of the solicitor’s fees. This ensures that you do not suffer any financial losses if your claim is unsuccessful.
When you accept a no win no fee agreement, it essentially means that the law firm is willing to offer you their legal services while working on your claim. In return, you will be expected to pay a ‘success fee’ if your claim is successful.
The document that outlines the details of this arrangement is called the Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). This is a formal written agreement between yourself and your solicitor. At Beacon Law, the success fee is capped at 25% of your damages. For example, if your claim settled for £4,000, we would deduct £1,000 from your final compensation.
The amount of legal costs we charge depends on a variety of factors, such as how many hours of work have been undertaken while your case was ongoing.
Most personal injury claims have a time limit of three years; therefore, if you are thinking about making a personal injury claim, it is in your best interest to contact one of our no win no fee solicitors today.

About Beacon Law
Beacon Law was originally founded by Karen Sproston in January 2002 and traded for almost ten years as “Sprostons Solicitors”.
Karen had previously worked in a number of Manchester practices specialising in personal injury law, ranging from the very small to the very large firms.
Karen established the firm with the belief that she could take the good from both types of firm; the friendly, approachable, down-to-earth and personal service of a small firm, with the efficient systems and resources and absolute specialism and expertise of the larger firms. And so, Sprostons Solicitors was born.
Mark Brierley became a partner in the firm in 2010, giving a further injection of youthful enthusiasm and energy. Mark has been keen to ensure that the firm continuously upgrades and improves its service and has a strong involvement with the development of the firm’s cutting edge IT systems to allow claims to be handled efficiently and in order that we can meet the changing needs and requirements of our clients in the way we interact with them.
In October 2011, the firm changed its name to Beacon Law.
