What does it all mean?
As part of our first meeting we will discuss what options might be available to you to fund your claim for personal injury. In most cases either a Conditional Fee Agreement or a Damages Based Fee Agreement will be the best method for you. If you decide to enter into a Conditional Fee Agreement or a Damages Based Fee Agreement with us and the claim is unsuccessful we will not be paid. If your claim is successful, the basic legal costs will be paid by your opponent (in addition to any compensation you receive). Under one way qualified cost shifting you, as the claimant, will not be liable for costs, even if the claim is unsuccessful except in exceptional circumstances.
*No Win No Fee
A no win no fee arrangement is often known as a conditional fee agreement. It’s the contract between you and your no win no fee personal injury lawyer.
If you win the claim, you’ll be asked to pay any costs and expenses, not paid for by the other side, from your compensation. This is likely to happen in most cases, as the other side is only required to make a contribution to your legal fees.
These costs may include:
• A “success fee” which compensates the solicitor for the risk they take, that if your claim is unsuccessful they won’t be paid at all.
• Any other legal costs or expenses not recovered from the other side, such as the costs of any legal expense insurance or certain disbursements.
These costs will only be deducted when your compensation is paid, and there are no upfront costs or hidden charges.
Your solicitor will discuss this with you at the start, so you’ll know what to expect when your claim settles
We will also discuss with you the possibility of taking out an After the Event legal expenses insurance policy to cover the cost of disbursements in the event that you do not recover these from your opponent.
