A ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement is a way of making a compensation claim with no worries about upfront legal fees. It is risk free for you as the claimant, as it means you only pay your personal injury lawyers if you win your claim. And if your claim is unsuccessful, you do not have to pay them anything.
If your claim is successful, your solicitor will take their fee from your compensation award, and if your claim is unsuccessful you will not pay them a penny. There are no hidden charges and no upfront costs for you to worry about.
While most cases can be dealt with on a no win no fee basis, there are some limited exceptions. Your solicitor will explain if that is the case at the start of the claim.

Mr D received £4,000 after a road traffic accident in which he suffered whiplash injuries.
"After my recent motor vehicle accident I was bombarded with numerous Personal Injury lawyer calls, however once I had a spoken to Claire McGruer of Thorntons Solicitors I knew I had found the right person to deal with my claim. From the onset,
Claire was extremely helpful in dealing with case and was always on hand to answer my telephone calls and very promptly reply to my emails. After visiting my own GP for an initial assessment, Claire secured an independent physio appointment locally within a matter of days. Claire also assisted in tying up the loose ends of my vehicle insurance claim for which I was very grateful.
Throughout the 2 months that my personal injury claim was ongoing, Claire actively kept me up to date on how things were progressing and was very honest when answering my questions and also gave me sound advice. When it came to settling my claim, the figure offered to me was far more than I had expected and I am sure this is down to the excellent service that Claire McGruer from Thorntons provided."
How much will it cost?
With a no win no fee arrangement there are no upfront costs for you as the claimant. You only pay us as your Personal Injury Solicitors if your claim is successful. We then take an agreed percentage of the compensation award, which is discussed with you at the start (up to a maximum of 25%). If your claim is unsuccessful, you pay us nothing.
However, you should be aware that if your personal injury claim is unsuccessful and the case goes to court, you may be liable to pay the costs of the other party. Our After-The-Event insurance product gives protection in such situations.
After The-Event Insurance
To support our no win, no fee agreement, we can also offer an insurance policy, called After The Event Insurance. This policy, also offered on a no win, no fee basis, gives you financial protection against any costs that may be payable to the other side if your claim is unsuccessful.
