No win no fee

With a no win, no fee agreement (also called a ‘conditional fee arrangement’), you make a claim for personal injury compensation with no liability to pay your solicitor’s fees if your claim is unsuccessful.

How do no win, no fee claims work?

Your solicitor acts on a no win, no fee basis whereby they do not charge for the time they engage in acting for you on your matter. 

Your only responsibility is to pay expenses (disbursements), but you can take out an insurance policy to cover the disbursements to pursue your compensation claim.

Disbursements include court fees, medical reports and more. The premium payable for the Insurance to cover expenses is normally self-insuring which means there is nothing for you to pay if your claim is unsuccessful.

How much do you pay if your claim is successful?

If your claim is successful, most of the basic legal costs will be recovered from the person or company responsible for what has happened to you. However, as all the legal costs are not normally recoverable and as a solicitor has taken a risk by acting on a no win, no fee basis and will not get paid until the end of the case, subject to the claim being successful, they will charge a success fee.

The success fee is based on the amount of work undertaken and capped as a maximum percentage of your final compensation.

What claims can be made on a win, no fee basis?

Most personal injury claims are conducted on a no win, no fee basis, including:

No win, no fee may also be available in relation to other types of claims, such as Inheritance Act claims, professional negligence, and other compensation claims, subject to assessment.
