Conditional Fee Agreements
What is a Conditional Fee Agreement?
A Conditional Fee Agreement is a written document, like a Terms of Business, which formalise the "No Win, No Fee" agreement between yourself and our Personal Injury Solicitors, who will deal with your Personal Injury Compensation claim.
The document sets out that you will not have to pay any legal fees, should your claim be unsuccessful, giving you, as the claimant, peace of mind that you will not be landed with a legal bill at the end of your case.
Conditional Fee Agreements were introduced in 1998, to help achieve access to legal representation for everybody, regardless of their background or ability to afford legal fees. In the case that you win your injury compensation claim, your personal injury solicitors are legally only allowed to charge you up to 25% of your compensation as a success fee.
What injury compensation claims can be dealt with on a Conditional Fee Agreement?
Our team of Personal Injury Solicitors like to give our clients complete peace of mind up front; we deal with all of our Personal Injury claims on a "No Win, No Fee" agreement, which will be formalised in a Conditional Fee Agreement.
