Understanding No Win No Fee Agreements 

No win no fee agreements, often seen in personal injury claims, offer a seemingly straightforward proposition: if your solicitor doesn't win your case, you don't pay their fees. However, there are nuances and conditions that claimants should be aware of.  
This article from our no win no fee solicitors in Preston dives into some key aspects you should consider, including Qualified One Way Cost Shifting (QOCS), fundamental dishonesty, Part 36 offers of settlement, and After The Event (ATE) insurance.  
If you're looking for expert guidance, MG Legal, no win no fee solicitors in Preston, rated best personal injury solicitors in the area, are well-equipped to assist you.

Qualified One Way Cost Shifting (QOCS) Explained 

QOCS is a rule in personal injury claims that generally protects the claimant from paying the other side's legal costs if they lose. However, there are exceptions. For instance, if a claim is found to be fundamentally dishonest, the protection offered by QOCS can be lost. It's essential to understand the implications of QOCS in your claim. 

The Risk of Fundamental Dishonesty 

Fundamental dishonesty refers to significantly misleading or false information provided during a claim. If a court finds evidence of fundamental dishonesty, the claimant could be liable for the costs of both parties. This emphasises the importance of honesty and transparency throughout the legal process. 

Understanding Part 36 Offers of Settlement 

Part 36 of the Civil Procedure Rules allows either party in a dispute to make an offer to settle. If you refuse a Part 36 offer and fail to obtain a more favourable judgment, there could be significant cost implications. This makes it crucial to consider such offers seriously and discuss them with your solicitor. It is worthy of note that with our personal injury solicitors’ guidance, not one of our clients has ever failed to beat a Part 36 offer made by an opponent.

The Role of ATE Insurance in Personal Injury Claims 

ATE insurance covers the legal costs and expenses involved in litigation if the case is unsuccessful. It's a safety net, but it's vital to understand the terms and coverage of the policy. Some policies may not cover all costs, or there might be conditions attached. Understandably, there is no ATE insurance available that covers a claimant where fundamental dishonesty is found. 

Choosing the Right Personal Injury Solicitor for you 

When you are injured, and not feeling your best, navigating the complexities of a personal injury claim can be challenging. That's why choosing the right legal partner, like MG Legal, no win no fee solicitors in Preston, is crucial. They can provide expert advice tailored to your specific circumstances, helping you make informed decisions throughout your claim process.

If you bring a claim that is found to be fundamentally dishonest, then, understandably your claim will fail, and you could be liable to pay your solicitors costs, and those of your opponent. By being aware of QOCS, the risks of fundamental dishonesty, the implications of Part 36 offers, and the role of ATE insurance, you can approach your personal injury claim with confidence. Remember, expert guidance from firms like MG Legal in Preston is invaluable in navigating these intricacies.
