No Win No Fee

The vast majority of the Personal Injury & Medical Negligence cases we run operate under a Conditional Fee Agreement commonly called a ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement.

This is our agreement with you that if you lose your case we won’t charge you a penny so it is risk free.

What is a ‘No Win, No Fee’ Agreement?

In the English legal system, it is generally referred to as no win no fee. A conditional fee agreement between a law firm and a client. The usual form of this agreement is that we will take on a case on the understanding that if lost, no payment is made.

However, if the case is won, we will be entitled to the normal fee based on our hourly rate, plus a success fee. The success fee in England must be a a percentage no greater than 100% of the normal fee. The normal fee is paid for by the Defendant but the success fee can be taken from any damages you receive.

Whatever our success fee is we are only allowed to take up to 25% of any damages for past losses (so not out of any future loss claim like loss of earnings). So if you receive £10,000 for you injury and £100,000 for future loss of earnings we could only take up to £2,500 leaving your future losses compensation untouched.
