What Are No Win No Fee Claims?

If you decide to make a compensation claim such as a personal injury or medical negligence claim due to suffering harm through the negligent actions of a responsible third party, you may want to instruct a solicitor. Many solicitors now work on a No Win No Fee basis when representing clients in a compensation claim. There are different types of No Win No Fee agreements. Some of which come under UK law:

If our solicitors take on your compensation claim they will offer you a Conditional Fee Agreement CFA. The benefits of claiming with a solicitor under a CFA are as follows:

  • Not having to pay any upfront fees for your solicitor’s services.
  • No ongoing fees to pay for your solicitor’s services.
  • If the claim is not successful, you will not need to pay your solicitor for their work.
  • If the claim is successful, a success fee will be taken by your solicitor from your compensation. The percentage your solicitor will be able to take as this fee will be legally limited.

The maximum percentage that a solicitor working under a CFA could charge as their success fee is 25%. However, some solicitors may offer a lower percentage than this depending on how much work they predict your case will need.

What Is 'After the Event' (ATE) Insurance?

After the Event Insurance ATE, covers your solicitor’s fees and costs in case the claim fails. It will usually be recommended by your solicitor to take this out when you seek to start a claim. This helps to ensure that the solicitor is still paid for the work they have done on your case and receives costs for disbursements, such as your independent medical assessment if the claim should fail.

If you have any questions regarding No Win No Fee claims or acquiring legal representation for your case, you can contact our advisors.

Which Types Of Claims Could You Make On A No Win No Fee Basis?

There are various types of compensation claims that you could make with a solicitor under a No Win No Fee agreement. Some examples include:

 

Accidents At Work Claims

 

Under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, you are owed a duty of care by your employer. They must take reasonably practicable steps to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their employees while they are working. This could include providing you with sufficient personal protective equipment (PPE), providing adequate training and performing routine maintenance checks.

If you were injured in an accident at work, such as a slip, trip or fall, due to your employer breaching their duty of care, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.

 

Public Place Accident Claims

 

An ‘occupier’ is any person or party in control of public places. Under the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957, an occupier owes you a duty of care to ensure your reasonable safety while you are visiting that space. This could include performing regular risk assessments.

Should an occupier fail to adhere to their duty of care and this causes you to become injured, you could be able to make a public liability claim.

 

Road Traffic Accident Claims

 

Every road user has a duty of care to each other to comply with the rules and regulations within the Road Traffic Act 1988 and the Highway Code to ensure they are navigating the roads in a safe and responsible manner that avoids causing damage or injury to others or themselves.

If a road user fails to adhere to their duty of care, and this causes a road traffic accident in which you are injured, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

 

Medical Negligence Claims

 

Every medical professional owes their patients a duty of care when they agree to treat them. Per their duty, they must ensure that the treatment they provide is of the correct required standard. This could include taking any symptom concerns seriously, referring for further tests when needed, and assessing any medication a patient is currently taking before prescribing new ones.

Should a medical professional fail to provide this minimum standard of care, and this causes you to suffer harm that was unnecessary or could have been avoided, they could be deemed as breaching their duty of care, and you may be eligible to make a medical negligence claim.

If you have suffered harm due to someone breaching a duty of care they owed you, our team of advisors could inform you whether you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation. Contact them today for a free eligibility case check or to ask any questions regarding No Win No Fee claims.

What Happens If You Lose Your Compensation Claim?

As previously aforementioned, if you have made a claim with a solicitor on a No Win No Fee basis and this claim ends unsuccessfully, you will not be required to pay them anything for the work they have provided on your case. To ensure any legal costs are covered, it is important to consider and take out (ATE) insurance just to be safe. It’s useful to remember that our solicitors only take on claims on a No Win No Fee basis that they believe have a strong chance of succeeding, which may help ease your worries. For any questions you may have regarding legal fees in No Win No Fee claims, you can contact our advisors.

How Much Compensation Will I Be Awarded?

If you make a successful medical negligence or personal injury claim, your compensation could consist of two types of loss. The first is known as general damages, which compensates you for any harm or injuries suffered, including the pain and suffering they have caused you.

As part of the claiming process, you may be invited to undergo an independent medical assessment. This may be arranged by your solicitor if you decide to work with one as part of their services. Following this assessment, a medical report will be made. This report may then be used alongside the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG) by those calculating your general damages.

Within the JCG is a list of compensation guidelines for various mental and physical injuries and illnesses. We have used some of these when creating the following table, except for the first entry. Please only refer to this table as a guide.

 

Compensation Guidelines

 

Claiming For Special Damages

The second head of loss that can form part of your settlement is referred to as special damages. Any financial harm you have suffered due to your injuries could be compensated under this head of loss, such as:

  • A loss of past or future earnings.
  • Medical bills.
  • Travel expenses.
  • The cost of domestic help at home.
  • The costs of any essential home adaptations.

Evidence will be required for special damages. For example, invoices could help with proving care costs, and payslips could help with proving a loss of earnings.
