Making A No Win No Fee Claim? Here’s How
Making a claim with no win no fee solicitors covering Braintree could be as easy as giving No Win No Fee Expert a call. Our advisors could assess whether you’d be eligible to claim for compensation, and then we could provide you with a no win no fee solicitor from our panel to work on your claim. Whether it’s a personal injury claim or a financial misselling claim, no win no fee claims tend to work in the same way, the particulars of which are detailed in an agreement referred to as a CFA.
CFA stands for a Conditional Fee Agreement, and this is a document that would be signed by both you and your legal representative before they take on your case.
The document itself sets out the percentage of your settlement that would be taken by the lawyer on completion of a successful claim. The percentage would be deducted from the settlement figure, with the rest going to benefit you. The maximum amount a lawyer could take from your settlement is 25%, as there is a government cap in place to this effect.
If your case is valid, yet it doesn’t result in compensation, then you would not be required to pay fees to the no win no fee solicitor.
