What Are No Win No Fee Solicitors like?

No Win No Fee is a generic term for agreements such a Conditional Fee agreement (CFA). This agreement doesn’t require you to pay any success fees if your claim fails.

A solicitor is generally not required to take an upfront payment in order for them to start work on a claim under these agreements. There are usually no ongoing costs while you claim proceeds.

The client will instead pay a success charge if the claim is approved. The client will pay a success fee as a percentage of the compensation. However, this fee is subject to a limit.

It is possible to hire legal representation on an “No Win No Fee” basis, which may make it more affordable for claimants.

No Win No Fee solicitors work on these claims. Because of the risks involved, solicitors will only accept cases that are likely to succeed.

In order to be accepted, claims must meet these criteria:

Someone has to have owed you a duty
They must have failed to uphold the duty of care that they owed you
This means that you must have suffered psychological or physical harm.

What is the Conditional Fee Agreements Order 2013, and How Does It Work?

The Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012, (LASPO), introduced a success fee to conditional fee agreements. To prevent claimants’ solicitors from getting all of their fees from defendants in successful claims, a success fee was imposed.

After the introduction in 2012 of the success fee under the LASPO Act, the Conditional Fee Agreements Order 2013 established a legal ceiling on the fees that solicitors may charge for it.

Legally, solicitors cannot charge more than a 25% success rate under Conditional Fee Agreement CFA.

No Win No Fee solicitors are available to handle many claims in which someone has failed to exercise their duty of care and resulted in harm being done to another person, such:

Road traffic accident lawsuits: This includes bike accident claims, car accidents claims, and pedestrian accident cases.

The pedestrian might have sustained minor head injuries as a consequence.
Public injury claims: This is where you can seek compensation from the local council for the damage to your arm and wrist that you suffered when you fell into a deficient pothole.
Workplace accidents: You could file a claim if your employer fails to perform regular risk assessments on equipment at work. A faulty ladder could have caused serious injuries to your leg.
Medical negligence claims: If a healthcare professional fails to provide the proper standard of care, you could file a medical negligence claim. You may be allergic to the medication your doctor prescribed.
