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 himself hoping to recover them from third party, or to apply for Legal Aid funded by tne 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In 1998 however the Government Legal Aid Scheme was withdrawn for personal injury and claims were allowed to be dealt with on a "No Win No Fee" basis. This means that a solicitor working on this basis will only charge his professional fees in the event of the case being won when the fees would usually be paid by the third party as part of the claim.

Whilst some solicitors or claims management companies may deduct a proportion of the compensation figure, Cooks Legal does not operate in this way and will not deduct any money from your compensation even if we win the case. We will only charge costs that we are able to recover from the other party at the end of the case.

If you have suffered person injury in the last three years and would like a Free Legal Assessment of your claim please complete the Application Form We will handle your claim on a No Win No Fee basis at no cost to you.

Mrs B was crossing a pedestrian crossing pushing her grandson in a baby buggy when she was knocked to the ground by a car driven by the defendant. The accident caused a complex fracture to her right foot.   Liability was denied as both parties claimed the lights were in their favour. At trial Cooks were successful in proving Mrs B’s case and she was awarded £90,000.00.
"I would like to thank you and all your staff for your courtesy and professionalism in what has been a very distressing time for us all..."
