No Win No Fee Compensation Claims

Most personal injury compensation claims are eligible for a no win no fee arrangement where you will pay NOTHING for the case as per our terms and conditions. The official term for this is known as Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA).

In a CFA agreement, as legal solicitors we will only be paid for a successful personal injury claim. The incurred fees, normally known as disbursements, at one time were normally paid by the unsuccessful party. As a claimant under the CFA agreement, you are protected by this impeding payment.

Did you know that there are two types of No Win No Fee claims?

We have already mentioned the first type of No Fees arrangement, the Conditional Fee Agreement. The other type is known as the Damages Based Agreement (DBA). Some people may know this as a contingency fee. Both No Win No Fee types are subject to winning the compensation cases in order for solicitors to be paid. The difference is in how the fees are paid. See the details on this page.

Changes in CFA Compensation Claims

From a No Win No Fee compensation perspective, the government had changed the law a few years back on 1 April 2013 to the legal amount that can be charged to the third party for winning personal injury claim disbursements. What this means is that the legal charges for providing a high calibre legal service will be assigned to you to cover the difference. This does not apply to all personal injury compensation claims.

The government has made it clear that these legal charges are to be regulated to no more than 25% of the aggregated compensation award and will exclude other expenses such as repairs and medical care. Future damages which result from the accident will not be affected.

The Effect Of Claiming Compensation

So, what many people are finding out that instead of the unsuccessful party paying for all their solicitor’s fees due to the personal injury claim, a sum of up to 25% of the compensation is deducted from their awarded amount. This is a legal outcome and is currently the foreseeable future and has a major impact on the compensation amount for your personal injury.

For example, a person who is awarded £10,000 compensation for his or her personal injury will find that solicitors will deduct up to £2,500 (25%) from their total compensation. The person is then only left with £7,500.

Insurance For Compensation Claims

The new ruling also affects the After the Event (ATE) insurance, a statutory element in a no win no fee case, in which the cost of the legal expense is no longer chargeable to the third party regardless of who succeeds the claim. Although, this does not apply to all personal injury claims, it can be a liability added on for you. You will know if it affects you where you will be explicitly notified before you commit to any of our services, as we strive to be open and honest to you and all of our clients.

No Win Compensation Claims

We establish at the consultation stage the prospect of winning a personal injury claim. The claim is evaluated and an ATE insurance to cover this risk is initiated if the chances of succeeding are less. A policy can be easily arranged for you to safely protect you from the potential disbursements, such as the court charges and other legal expenses. You will not have to pay for the insurance premium if the case is unsuccessful. Otherwise, a successful claim fixes the insurance premium to you once compensation is awarded.

You will be told explicitly from the start, if your personal injury compensation claim is considered incompatible to pursue on a Conditional Fee Agreement (No Win No Fee) basis. This may transpire if the risk of winning the personal injury claim or the insurance premium is too high. Circumstances like these are few and rare; but at least you are being informed and not left to discover any potentially hidden charges if it did happen to you. Remember, that we want to be transparent for your benefit, because your benefit is our benefit.

In other some exceptional cases, the unsuccessful party is instructed not to pay some extra costs. These circumstances are also rare and may commit liability to you for payment of these charges. We will tell you when necessary and highlight any risks that may affect your personal injury compensation claim. We want to fulfill our guarantee to obtain your more than maximum compensation in the best legal way possible.

An Alternative to No Win No Fee

One of the questions we may ask you might be whether you have legal expense insurance. This is because if you do have legal expense insurance, then it may be possible to use it instead of claiming for your injury under a No Win No Fee Compensation Agreement.

If you are not aware of such insurance, it probably is something which you may have taken out under a policy for another use and it can be quite easily missed. For example, many insurance companies offer additional packages which can include this buried in many other options. Nowadays, some banks offer this for their premium accounts.

Legal Expense Insurance

You may know legal expense insurance as legal protection insurance. Whatever it is called we can help you identify the option and will explain what it may mean to you based on the conditions of the agreement. Policies do vary depending on the validation of the underwriter and will usually cover legal costs for the insured people and businesses.

There are two methods of taking out legal expense insurance. The common method is ‘Before the Event’ where insurance is acquired for any eventualities that may happen where legal action is pursued.

The less common method of taking out legal expense insurance is known as ‘After the Event’ where the risk of losing a legal action is insured. The underwriter will consider the chances of paying for the legal costs of the third party to enable financial protection for the insured.

However, it is important to remember that the legal expense insurance is an alternative to the No Win No Fee Agreement. You will be explained about the options available to you and the benefits of each so that you can decide the best route to take for your maximum compensation. Please ask anything you are not sure about and we will give you honest and impartial advice.
