The No Win No Fee agreement means that if your claim is unsuccessful you do not pay anything to anyone as long as you have not been untruthful or tried to commit fraud. You and your solicitor agree that you will only have to pay your solicitor’s fees if you win your case. If you win your case, your solicitor’s fees are normally paid by the other side. However, your solicitors are allowed to charge you a success fee which is limited to a maximum of 25% of the compensation you receive. By way of an example if you are awarded £4,000 compensation, you will pay £1,000 to your solicitor and you will receive £3,000 in your hand. Your solicitor will advise you further when you speak with them.
