No Win No Fees

No win no fees claims can be made in UK only if a person gets severely injured due to other’s negligence. A person wants compensation in following cases-

  • In case of a traffic accident
  • In case of accidents at work
  • In case of flawed medical treatment
  • In case of accident at public place such as pedestrian, supermarket and restaurant.

Those who lack sufficient funds for fighting the compensation case can opt for “no win no fee” or “conditional fee” claims. In these kinds of claims, the victim can get cent percent compensation in case of winning the case and have to pay nothing in case of losing the case. But still you should think carefully before starting with the No Win No Fee agreement with the personal injury solicitor. Under the no win no fee agreement, you might be liable for paying other cost in case of losing the case. So, you must have “after the event” insurance policy before going for no win fee agreement. You can face difficulty in getting “after the event” insurance policy in case you have least chances of winning the no win no-fee case.

The victim is not required to pay off the solicitor cost in case of losing the no win no-fee case. If you win the no win no-fee claim case, then the other side will pay for the solicitor cost. The no win no fee solicitors take the success fee in case of winning the compensation case. The success fee amount are usually higher and so one must take the after the event insurance policy for paying off the higher success fee to the solicitor in case of winning the no win no fee case. Those opting for the No Win No Fees criterion may have to pay off extra costs in certain conditions, such as-

  • You have to pay off for wasting time of the court In case you drop the ongoing case.
  • Your solicitor can compensate you if you refuse to make an out of court settlement advised by the solicitor.
  • You can be compensated if you go for an out of court settlement without the consent of the solicitor.
  • You have to pay off for if you do not support your solicitor while the No Win No Fee case is being fought.

If the negligent party is ordered to pay success fee but they cannot afford it then the victim has to pay off the success fee to the solicitor after winning the No Win No Fee compensation case.

Public Liability
Pedestrian Fall from Bicycle
Miss H was knocked off her bicycle when her front tyre struck a loose paving stone jutting into the road. She sustained a head injury causing severe short term memory loss and mood swings. After 2 years her original Solicitors withdrew from the case as they believed her claim had less than a 50% chance of succeeding. Miss H contacted Cooks who agreed to represent her on a No win No fee basis.

Within 18 months the matter was resolved and Miss H received a settlement cheque of £300,000.00. She told us
"Thank you Cooks for believing in me and my claim. My Solicitor was always available to me and happy to explain each step of the process. The only surprise was how much you managed to obtain for me without the need to go to trial. I will tell all my friends about your great service."
Miss H from London
