No Win No Fee

No Win No Fee information

firefox "No Win No Fee" is a term that describes a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) between client and a a law firm. The nature of a Personal Injury claim, is that it is an agreement between the client and their lawyer. The CFA enables the lawyer to take on a case realted to personal injuryon the understanding that if in the event of a case being lost then the client will not have to pay the solicitor's costs. In the event that the case is successful and the lawyer wins the case, then they shall be entitled to their standard fee plus an uplift which is known as a success fee. In current English law, the strength of fee granted for winning a case cannot be more than 100% of the solicitor's standard fee. If the client wins their Personal Injury case, either the Courts or the losing party’s insurers will make an award of damages. In addition, the insurer will be required to pay the client's legal costs including any uplift of fees as well as expenses. With most Conditional Fee Agreements, the client will have nothing to pay and will receive 100% of any compensation awarded in their claim. After the Event Insurance (ATE) is the term used to describe the type of insurance policy, which is normally obtained by a lawyer acting on behalf of their client. This is generally taken out after legal proceedings have been contemplated or in the case of a personal injury claim, when a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA) is entered into. ATE insurance is designed to protect the client from the risk of legal costs from either their own lawyer or those costs incurred by an opposing party in a legal case in the unlikely event that a personal injury case is either discontinued or lost at trial. In addition, there are several alternatives to ATE for funding a personal injury claim:

  • Legal Expense Insurance (LEI), often referred to as Before the Event (BTE) Insurance
  • Legal Aid
  • Legal Expense Insurance (LEI), often referred to as Before the Event (BTE) Insurance
