No Win No Fee

What is ‘no win no fee’?

No win no fee has become a popular catchphrase amongst lawyers and personal injury solicitors and as such it’s made it into everyday usage. You’ll often see ‘no win no fee’ written on billboard ads, on your TV screen and on leaflets and posters relating to personal injury and accident claims.

But what does it actually mean?

‘No win no fee’ does what it says on the tin. You keep all the compensation involved and the costs of your lawyers and personal injury claim specialists are recovered separately from the other side. This means you’re not out of pocket and you don’t have to worry about claiming enough to pay for expensive lawyers.

The details of no win no fee claims should be looked at in detail. Such claims are not available in every region, and indeed no win no fee is being phased out in a lot of countries, partially to try and alleviate advancing ‘compensation cultures’. Always look into no win no fee carefully to see how it applies to your particular situation, and what regional and national regulations and factors come into play.

Choosing a no win no fee provider

When you’re choosing a ‘no win no fee’ provider, your first port of call should be trying to find a friend who can provide you with extensive details and a direct recommendation. Failing that, search for genuine reviews of the company online. Avoid sites that are paid to offer good reviews and referrals, and instead stick to general consumer sites that are independently run by a third party.

Some consumer forums, particularly the big money-orientated ones such as saving communities can be helpful as well, but be careful when reading posts and keep an eye out for patterns of members with only a handful of posts that seem unrealistically enthusiastic about the company in question. No one gets THAT excited about personal injury claims!

Never select a provider simply because you’ve seen their advertising everywhere or because they are the only ones who explicitly offer a ‘no win no fee’ service.

What to look for and what to avoid

Make sure your preferred no win no fee personal injury lawyers have the relevant qualifications for your region. Always call and ask questions beforehand to check their professionalism and attitude.

Select a provider with a trustworthy, quality approach – avoid those with tacky, cheesy advertising and poor websites.

Good luck!
