What Is A No Win No Fee Agreement?
No Win No Fee is a term you may have heard before, maybe on the radio, on billboards or on TV commercials. The meaning behind the term is simple.
If your case doesn’t succeed, you don’t have to pay your solicitor any fees for representing you.
- No fees to pay upfront
- Nothing to pay as the claim progresses
- And to confirm again, if the claim fails, you won’t have to pay your lawyer anything at all.
The only time you do pay a fee is if the claim does succeed. What you’d pay is a small percentage of the compensation you are awarded. This is used to cover the costs incurred by your solicitor while representing you. The fee is capped by law, meaning you know the maximum that you have to pay before you claim. And the money is taken directly from your compensation award, so you don’t actually pay anything from your own pocket.
