Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)

We work on a “No win, no fee” basis, also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement, as long as you cooperate, provide instructions and do not mislead us, in the event that your claim is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay us. However, you will be responsible for disbursements (fees we pay to progress your claim, such as medical reports/court fees) and your opponent’s legal costs.

To ensure that you are protected against paying any costs and you can proceed with minimum risk we recommend that you take out an After the Event Insurance (ATE) policy. If you win, this will be deducted from your costs. If you lose, the policy self-insures, pays itself off and also your liability for disbursements and your opponent’s legal costs. The policy is on a deferred basis, which means that it only needs paying when your claim has concluded.
Alternatively, if you have any form of Before the Event (BTE) Insurance, with your home, car insurance, credit cards or any other methods that include legal expenses cover, then you may not need ATE insurance and we can approach your BTE Insurer to see if they will indemnity us in relation to proceeding with your claim. However, we will have to check the level of cover and also if they will permit us to act – the terms may not be as advantageous as the ATE cover you can obtain.

In the event that you do not have any insurance to indemnity you, then if your claim is unsuccessful, you will be responsible for disbursements and your opponent’s legal costs which is why we recommend that you take out ATE cover, so that you are not exposed to the risk of having to pay any costs in the event that your claim is not successful, subject to the caveat above.

Contingency Fee Agreement

When we take your claim on, we will sign you up to a Contingency Fee Agreement which permits us to recover a 40% success fee for your Official Injury Claims (OIC) case.
