No win no fee
What is no win no fee?
'No win no fee’ was launched by the government in 1995 to help people gain access to justice, whether or not they could afford legal representation. It simply means that if your claim is unsuccessful, you have nothing to pay.
The government brought in changes to the way the system works in England and Wales in April 2013. Before these changes, the person responsible for causing the road accident would have to pay all of the legal costs associated with the case, so the claimant would usually keep all of the compensation awarded.
Now, solicitors can still offer a No Win No fee service, but claimants may be expected to contribute to their legal costs from any compensation they receive. Unlike other companies our solicitor firms still offer a no win no fee service, and if the claim is successful, we make sure that you keep the maximum compensation.
