No Win No Fee

Prior to the introduction of the No Win No Fee System in the UK, an injured person wishing to claim compensation from a negligent party would either have to fund the legal expenses of the claim him or herself hoping to recover the costs from the negligent third party or their insurers, or apply for Legal Aid funded by the government.

In 1998 however the Government Legal Aid Scheme was withdrawn for personal injury and claims were allowed to be dealt with on a "No Win No Fee" basis by No Win No Fee Solicitors. This means that a Solicitor working on this basis will not charge any costs if the case does not succeed and in the event of the case being won the fees will be paid by the third party as part of the claim. It therefore allows access to justice for victims of accidents to make claims when otherwise they would be unable to afford to do so.

Whilst some No Win No Fee Solicitors or claims management companies may deduct a proportion of the compensation figure, Cooks Legal do not operate in this way as we receive all our costs from the other party and will not deduct any money from your compensation even if we win the case. Our costs will be recovered from the other party at the end of the case.

We have many years of experience in handling personal injury claims and we are an Accredited Office of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. We will ensure that your claim is handled in the most efficient manner and that the maximum compensation is awarded in the fastest possible time.
