What is a no win no fee solicitor?
A no win no fee agreement protects you as a client and means that the solicitor does not have to charge you if your claim does not succeed. However, it is important to understand the way that the no win no fee system works and what the risks are before you sign an agreement with a solicitor.
No win no fee solicitors are a type of personal injury law firm that operates on the basis that if you don’t win your claim, they don’t have to be paid for their work. They only take their success fee (also known as a damages-based agreement) if you receive compensation from your claim, which is legally capped at no more than 25% of the compensation you recover.
How much will I have to pay?
It is important to check how much your solicitors Essex will be charging for their services and whether they are willing to put this in writing. If they don’t, you should try and find another solicitor who can offer a no-win-no, fee service and make sure that their fees are put in writing.
Are you in an accident?
Some types of personal injury claims are more complex than others, so it is important to ensure that your solicitor has the expertise and experience needed to represent you. This will be made clear to you at the outset and will also be outlined in your conditional agreement before they start working on your case.
