No Win No Fee Solicitors: Personal injury specialists
Find out how much your personal injury claim may be worth
What are No Win, No Fee Solicitors?
There are many firms of Solicitors in England and Wales who offer their services on a no win, no fee basis. Solicitors are aware that many victims of injuries and crimes are often concerned about the financial risks involved when instructing a Solicitor to conduct a case on their behalf. For this reason, many will offer a no win, no fee agreement. So, what exactly is a “no win, no fee” agreement?
A no win, no fee agreement is used as a way of funding a case where the accident victim does not have the means to pay the costs involved as the case progresses. When acting under this type of agreement, Solicitors will require that their Clients sign a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) which means that they agree to pay fees, but only if the claim is successful.
It is worth noting that the vast majority of solicitors will only agree to take on your case if there is at least a 50% chance of success. In other words, they will only agree to provide a no win, no fee service if they believe they are likely to win your case.
No Win No Fee Lawyers: What Will I Be Required to Pay If I Win?
The conditions for what will be payable on a successful claim should be listed within your Conditional Fee Agreement or retainer from your solicitor. When pursuing a claim through no win, no fee lawyers, it is likely that you will be required to pay a success fee on conclusion of a successful case. In most circumstances, the success fee will be capped at 25%.
You may also be required to pay an additional amount for an After The Event (ATE) insurance policy. At the start of your case, the ATE Insurance policy may have been taken out on your behalf by your Solicitor to protect you from having to pay the Defendant’s costs and disbursements if your case is unsuccessful. This should also be explained within the CFA.
The Benefit of Instructing No Win, No Fee Solicitors
Most Claimants will opt to instruct a firm of no win, no fee solicitors to act on their behalf so that they do not have to pay any legal fees upfront. They may also be worried about being left out of pocket if their claim is unsuccessful. When making a no win, no fee claim, you will have peace of mind in the knowledge that you will not be required to pay any legal costs if your claim is unsuccessful.

Circumstances when You May Have to Pay Our Fees
Although uncommon, there are some circumstances where you may be held responsible for our fees and costs as well as the Defendant’s fees and costs. For example:
- In the unlikely event that you should wish to end the ‘No Win No Fee’ Agreement before settlement of your case, you will have an obligation to pay our basic costs, unless you agree to await the outcome of your claim.
- In the event you fail to provide us with instructions or fail to co-operate with us in any way, we would hold you to be in breach of the ‘no win, no fee’ agreement.
- If you are found to be fundamentally dishonest at any stage of the claim. This can include providing any information regarding the claim which you know to be untrue, and can include exaggerating injuries, providing false or inaccurate information about the details of the accident, or failing to inform us of any information, such as previous accidents or injuries.
- You may also be responsible for some of our fees if you win. This situation may arise if we cannot recover all of our costs from the opponent. However, in the event of a successful outcome, we would hope you will recover most if not all of our costs from your opponent.
Time limits for making a claim
In the majority of personal injury cases, you will have three years from the date of your accident to conclude your case or initiate Court proceedings. It is for this reason that we always recommend starting your claim as soon as possible after your accident to prevent your claim from becoming statute barred.
These time limits may be extended in certain circumstances. If you were under the age of 18 when you had your accident, you will have until your 21st birthday to conclude your case or initiate proceedings.
