Our team of specialist personal injury solicitors work on a ‘no win, no fee‘ basis. No win, no fee agreements are also known as conditional fee agreements. No win no fee means that if you do not win your supermarket accident claim, you do not have to pay a penny towards your solicitors fee.
No win no fee claims have become increasingly common over the past few years since the Government restricted public access to Legal Aid for the majority of accident claims.
During your free no obligation consultation, one of our personal injury solicitors will make an assessment as to the likelihood of the supermarket accident claim being successful. If the personal injury solicitor thinks your claim is unlikely to be successful, we will not be able to take your claim on a no win no fee basis. This is because with a no win no fee claim our solicitor only gets paid if the accident claim is successful. If the solicitor takes the claim on a no win no fee basis and fails to win, as the name suggests they do not receive a fee.
If a no win no fee claim is successful the solicitors fees, along with a bonus or success fee, is paid by the losing party. Other costs incurred such as court fees and medical report costs are known as disbursements and can also normally be recovered from the losing party.
