What is no win no fee?
Normally when a client instructs a Solicitor to complete some work for them the client has to pay for the service from their own pocket. No win No fee is different in that you should not have to pay anything upfront and if you lose, you don’t pay anything. No win No fee agreements enable injured people to claim the compensation they are entitled to without any personal financial risk.
How does Harris Fowler get paid?
If we lose we get nothing. If we win we will claim the majority of your legal costs directly from the Defendant or their insurance company. Due to a change in the law from 1st April 2013, you may have to make a contribution from your compensation towards your legal costs which we will discuss with you before the start of your claim.
What happens if I lose my case?
At Harris Fowler we take the risk and if we lose a case we simply don’t get paid and you don’t pay anything.
What about the defendant’s costs?
In most cases you will not be liable for the Defendants costs. Your Solicitor will discuss this with you at the outset of your case.
