Accident Claim No Win No Fee, are also known as conditional fee arrangements. These claims are a type of claim which can be pursued if you have suffered personal injury (e.g. as a result of a work-related accident). Pursuing a NO WIN NO FEE fee claim greatly reduces the risk of taking legal action. In this way, it eases people who are reluctant to pursue a personal injury the claim, because of the fear of mounting and exorbitant legal costs.
What are NO WIN NO FEE claims?
Essentially, NO WIN NO FEE claims are pursued on the basis that you do not need to pay any legal fees related to your claim, unless you are successful in winning your claim. This alleviates a lot of the risk associated with bringing legal action. If your claim is unsuccessful, you may be liable to pay the other side’s legal costs. However, we can offer a solution to this with “After Event” Insurance.
Is NO WIN NO FEE the same as Legal Aid?
NO WIN NO FEE claims were introduced in the 1990s. This type of claim replaced legal aid (which was a government scheme to help make legal services accessible to all, so that everyone could have a fair hearing). This was particularly aimed at those who could not afford to pay for legal representation. Legal aid had to be applied for, with grants being ‘mean-tested’. NO WIN NO FEE does not need to be applied for.
