No Fee: Explained
Read more for an in-depth look into what ‘No Win, No Fee’ claims are, and how they can help you.
What is No Win No Fee?
No Win No Fee – also known as a conditional fee agreement (CFA) – is an agreement between you and your solicitor which means you won’t have to pay their fee if they don’t win your case. This means that you don’t pay any costs upfront – once your solicitor takes on your case, you’ll only need to pay them if you win compensation.
How does No Win No Fee work?
Most solicitors will assist you in making a personal injury claim on a No Win No Fee basis. There are some rare exceptions to this, but if this applies to your case, they’ll let you know before starting your claim and they will talk you through the other options available.
The majority of your claim will be handled by No Win No Fee solicitors, so you can focus on recovering from your injury. They’ll keep you up-to-date with any progress and will be on hand to give you help and advice if you need it.
How much do I pay my solicitor if I win my case?
If you win your case, your solicitor will take a small percentage fee from the compensation you’re awarded, but this is agreed upon between you before they begin work on your case – in most cases, it will be up to 25% of the money you receive. There are no hidden fees – the main priority is to make sure you get the money you need for your recovery, so you don’t need to worry about all your compensation being taken up by legal fees and solicitors’ costs.
What happens if I lose my case?
If you don’t win, you won’t need to pay your solicitor. This removes any financial risk to you when making a personal injury claim. They’ll take out what is known as ATE insurance, which covers your legal fees if you lose your claim. ATE insurance covers costs and expenses paid out on your behalf including expert reports, barristers’ fees and court fees.
If you lose your case, you’ll usually need to pay at least a proportion of the other party’s legal costs. However, ATE insurance also covers this for you, so it adds another layer of financial protection.
In response to questions we receive regarding the claims process and how it works, we have broken it down into four simple, easy-to-understand steps. You can always contact us to find out more and upon claiming, your agent will explain everything to you in greater detail to ensure you’re always fully informed about what happens next.

Areas of Specialism
Noise-Induced Hearing Loss
If the specialist informs us that your hearing loss is down to your time in the Armed Forces, you will be eligible to pursue a claim for monetary compensation.
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has a duty of care to you as an employee and should make sure that precautions are taken to prevent unnecessary injury during training. If you think the MoD has failed in this respect, our solicitors may be able to help you seek compensation through a military training injury claim.
Non-Freezing Cold Injury
Most NFCIs are avoidable. If you’ve suffered a non-freezing cold injury in the military, we may be able to help you claim compensation.
If you’ve suffered an injury because of defective military equipment, then our solicitors could help you claim compensation through a civil case.
