No Win, No Fee Solicitors
We operate on a no win, no fee basis. We don’t want you to be put off making a claim because you’re worried about the cost of seeking legal advice. We believe justice should be available to everyone.
What does no win, no fee mean?
This means that, if you do not win your case, you will not be expected to pay any fees or charges. Unlike some other firms, with Medical Accident Group, you won’t even have to pay things like experts’ fees as you go along – these are the expenses that we will pay out to others to support your claim.
How does no win, no fee work?
- We start with a no obligation consultation with one of our expert team. We’ll discuss your experience and determine whether or not you are eligible to make a claim.
- We will then explore funding options with you. In the majority of cases we handle claims on a no win, no fee basis.
- If this is the case we’ll offer you what is called a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). This is a simple method of covering the legal costs involved where the Medical Accident Group agrees to take no payment until the end of the case. In the event of a win, our costs will be covered by the opposition and we will charge you a success fee for the risks that we are taking up to a limit of 25% of your award for general damages for pain and suffering, and loss of amenity, and damages for pecuniary loss, other than future pecuniary loss; if the case is lost, we take no fee, and there is no cost to you.
What happens if I lose my case?
The law states that if the case is lost, the losing party pays the legal costs. We want to make sure you won’t be required to cover any court costs, however.
That’s why, as part of your no-win-no-fee agreement, we’ll take out an ‘after the event’ (ATE) insurance policy on your behalf. An ATE is only taken out once the legal case has begun, and is specifically designed to protect clients whose claims are potentially unsuccessful.
The cost of the ATE insurance policy is, like the legal fees, deferred until the end of the case. If the case is unsuccessful, no payment is required, as the premium is self-insuring.
