What is a success fee?

A success fee is the amount you will be charged by the solicitor for a CFA compliant compensation claim. This covers your legal professional for their costs/risk of taking on a case in which, if unsuccessful, they will not be paid for their time and effort.

It is expressed as a percentage of your awarded compensation, and it will always be agreed ahead of your claim process. While this may not be the only charge you could be liable for, it will usually represent the majority of costs, and will allow you to keep most of your compensation.

The Ministry Of Justice restricts the percentage of the success fee to 25% of the total compensation awarded for personal injury claims, so you will always hold on to the majority of the value of your claim.

Your opponent, or their insurer, will not be liable to pay your success fee. It will be deducted from the compensation you receive for pain, suffering, loss of amenity and monetary damages. Any compensation you receive for future loss of earnings will not be considered when calculating your success fee.

We will always discuss your circumstances clearly to ensure a No Win No Fee is the best option for your case. Agreeing on the approach we take on your claim is a priority for us, and we will make sure you fully understand our cost structure before proceeding.

Should I get legal protection insurance?

In the unfortunate event of your claim being unsuccessful, it’s likely you will have to pay some of the other party’s costs. A CFA is not going to cover you against these costs, and, although other types of protection exist, you may still need to consider being insured against having to pay your opponent’s fee and your own disbursements.

We will always be clear with you and offer frank opinions if we feel your claim is likely to prove unsuccessful.

In conjunction with seeking the help of a solicitor who will take your case on a No Win No Fee claim basis, you may be advised to be protected against additional costs by an ‘after the event’ (ATE) insurance policy. This will give you the best amount of protection against any additional costs you may incur – even if you do not need to pay your solicitor.

We are able to arrange an ATE policy for you, after having agreed on what is the most suitable option for your compensation claim. The cost of the policy will only need to be paid at the end of the claim process, and only if it is successful. Should your case be unsuccessful, the cost of the insurance cover is generally self-insured, and you will not be liable for any charges related to it.

Am I obligated to use my insurance's solicitor?

If you have existing legal expenses insurance, your insurer may attempt to arrange your legal representation for you. You are by no means obligated to instruct the legal professional provided by your insurance.

Seeking the best possible legal representation is crucial in these cases, and you should not settle for a solicitor you do not feel 100% confident in.

We can arrange for your case to be transferred from your insurer’s solicitors to us, if you wish to proceed with our legal representation.

Could I be liable for costs if I lose?

A CFA will not generally cover you from any monetary compensation you may need to pay to your opponent in the event you lose your claim.

You may also be liable to pay for other costs, such as court fees or any balance owed to experts – such as doctors providing medical reports and collecting medical records, and evidence on a compensation claim. These are known as “disbursements”.

In compensation claims you will generally have some degree of protection against costs you may need to pay to your opponent. The current legislation around such claims involves a system known as ‘Qualified One Way Costs Shifting’ (QOCS). This will protect you from having to cover your opponent’s costs, but your own disbursements will still apply.

Disbursements can easily add up throughout a personal injury claim, and some circumstances may keep you from fully utilising the benefits of QOCS. This could include a situation in which you receive a Part 36 Offer as part of a formal settlement offer, but reject it and then proceed not to beat that offer in the case’s outcome.

We generally advise our claimants to obtain after the event (ATE) or other suitable legal protection insurance. Lanyon Bowdler’s team can arrange this for you, ensuring you receive the best possible protection against unforeseen costs.

How much can I win?

There are many factors that may influence the amount you can claim as part of your No Win No Fee injury claim. Aspects that the court will consider in calculation of the amount of compensation you’re awarded include:

  • The extent and gravity of your injuries
  • Costs associated with treatments
  • The degree and time frame of recovery
  • Costs of modifications to your home or vehicle
  • Loss of past and future earnings

Our expert solicitors will always discuss your case in clear terms and conclude the general value of your compensation before starting your claim. How much you could be awarded and our costs are always going to be explained clearly with you, and agreed upon before continuing your claims process.

How long does a no win no fee claim take?

The time it can take for your compensation claim to reach a settlement can vary greatly, depending on the extent of your injuries and recovery time. Injuries which take six months or less to recover from can usually be awarded compensation within eight months of the date of the injury or accident.

Some cases, such as those involving severe injuries or permanently debilitating injuries, may be subject to much longer legal processes, and therefore, take longer to reach a settlement. There are, however, options for those involved in these claims to obtain partial compensation before a final settlement is reached, such as interim payments.

Will I need to go to court for my no win no fee claim?

Most compensation cases are settled out of court, many when legal proceedings had commenced already.

We understand that bringing your case to a court can be stressful. We will always aim to settle your claim outside of court if it is possible to secure you the compensation you deserve.

Unfortunately, some cases involving an alleged breach of duty of care will require court proceedings in order to reach a fair settlement. You can be assured of the high standard of our legal representation, whether in or out of court.
