NO WIN NO FEE* EXPLAINED
When you require the assistance of an expert solicitor it is natural to have concerns about how much this service is going to cost you; you may already be in a vulnerable position and the last thing you need is for things to get worse before they get better.
How does it Work?
This agreement means that you pay nothing up front for the services of the solicitor, and even if the worst does happen and your case is not successful, you will not be left with fees for a service that got you nowhere.
The no win no fee* system works to make sure that whatever the outcome of your case, you will never be left in a worse position than you started, while also ensuring that your solicitor receives payment for their expert services. There are two possible outcomes to a no win no fee* agreement, depending on whether your case is successful or not.
There will be two scenarios where your solicitor may charge you for their costs:
if you have been found to be making a fraudulent claim
Non-cooperation by you, which jeopardises the outcome of your claim
*other costs could be payable
