If you have an accident that wasn’t your fault, your life can be turned upside down. Not only do you have to deal with getting medical treatment and rehabilitation for injuries resulting from your accident, but also you may not be able to work.
In order for you to see justice, the last thing you need to think about is trying to find the money to pay for a Lawyer to help you. For this reason, we carry out most of our personal injury and medical negligence claims on a No Win, No Fee basis.
A No Win, No Fee claim or ‘Conditional Fee Agreement’ as it’s known, means, in short, you don’t have to pay us anything if your claim isn’t successful - so there is no financial risk to you.
If we’re unsuccessful with your personal injury claim with a No Win, No Fee agreement you would not pay us anything for our legal fees. This is part of the risk we take to when running your case. The other fees which may have been incurred, such as an expert medical report about your condition, would be covered by an After the Event (ATE) insurance policy if that has been taken out, which is usually the case.
When you contact us for a free claims assessment and legal advice, we’ll discuss all the funding options available, including No Win, No Fee to make sure that we have the right option for you.
Simpson Millar has specialist teams of No Win, No Fee Personal Injury Solicitors, who can deal with many different types of accident and injury claims on a No Win, No Fee basis, including:
A No Win, No Fee agreement, also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement, is the arrangement between you and your Personal Injury Solicitor.
It means that if you win your claim, any costs and expenses will be deducted from your compensation after it’s been paid. Your Personal Injury Solicitor will discuss this with you at the beginning of your claim, so you won’t be caught out by surprise costs when your case is settled.
If we can offer you a No Win, No Fee Agreement and you agree, we may ask you to take out an After the Event (ATE) insurance policy.
This will cover any costs such as medical reports and Court fees, and means you can start your personal injury claim without paying anything upfront. ATE insurance also provides vital protection if your personal injury claim doesn’t succeed.
You may already have existing Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) cover in place as part of another insurance policy. We can check if you already have suitable cover in place.
If we’re successful with your personal injury claim and you’re awarded compensation, our fees for helping you will be paid from this compensation. This is capped at no more than 25% of the total compensation awarded.
We are very transparent about our costs and would be happy to talk with you about how this works in more detail.
If you’re awarded compensation for mesothelioma resulting from asbestos exposure you’ll receive 100% of the compensation because our fee will be paid by the other side or their insurer, not by you.
Trade Union members claiming compensation through their legal panel (Simpson Millar is a panel member for many Trade Unions) will also receive 100% of the compensation because of your Trade Union membership.
