What Are The Benefits Of No Win No Fee Agreements?
One of the benefits of this type of agreement is that claimants may begin the claim process immediately. There is no need for monies to be paid upfront in order to secure the services of a personal injury solicitor or housing disrepair solicitor, for example. This makes the process of making a claim accessible to anyone regardless of their financial circumstances. A no win no fee agreement consists of a document that is signed by the claimant and solicitor at the start of the claims procedure. The agreement details the fee that your no win no fee solicitor would receive if your claim is successful. Your solicitors’ success fee will be taken from the final settlement figure of your awarded amount. The agreement would also confirm that should your claim be valid, but no compensation is forthcoming, then you would not be liable for your solicitors fees.
