What Does ‘No Win, No Fee’ Actually Mean?
Since their launch back in 1995, ‘no win, no fee’ cases (also known as conditional fee arrangements) have enjoyed a massive rise to prominence, with dozens of firms offering a risk-free legal case should you be injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault.
Here at Tranter Cleere & Co Ltd we specialise exclusively in personal injury claims and, with over 25 years in the business, we have vast experience of winning the compensation our clients deserve. We also offer a no win, no fee service – but what does that actually mean for you?
What will it cost me if my claim is unsuccessful?
Firstly, as the name suggests, if your claim is unsuccessful you will not be obliged to pay any of our fees. This is how the vast majority of our client’s claims here at Tranter Cleere are run.
What will it cost me if I win my claim?
Recent legislative changes made by the government in the Legal Aid, Sentencing & Punishment of Offenders Act has changed the way your legal costs are covered in the event of a successful claim.
Although we recover some of our legal costs from the defendant in accordance with normal court rules, the new system requires you to pay a contribution towards your costs. We can explain the amount of that contribution when your case starts, however the law states that your contribution cannot be more than 25% of your damages.
Is my claim worth it?
If you have been injured to any extent in an accident that wasn’t your fault then we’d assert that the claim is definitely worth proceeding with. However if you’re unsure, feel free to contact us for free, no obligation advice from a team of legal experts.
