'No Win No Fee' Solicitors and the Talcum Powder Claim
It may be daunting for or those wishing to join the talcum powder claim, especially when it comes to the financial arrangements.
Here we explain what No Win No Fee solicitors are, and why these arrangements help make legal services more accessible.
What are 'No Win No Fee' solicitors?
‘No Win No Fee’ solicitors, also known as ‘No Win No Fee’ lawyers, are legal professionals who provide their services under a No Win No Fee agreement. This is also known as a conditional fee agreement or CFA.
These solicitors offer their expertise and representation to their clients without charging any upfront fees or costs. Instead, their fees and expenses are reliant upon the successful outcome of the case.
No Win No Fee solicitors typically specialise in areas of law where this payment arrangement is common. Areas such as personal injury, medical negligence, employment law, and group action claims. They assess the merits of a potential case and determine if it has a reasonable chance of success before agreeing to take it on under a No Win No Fee agreement.
What is a 'No Win No Fee' claim?
When No Win No Fee solicitors agree to take on your claim under a No Win No Fee agreement, this is known as a No Win No Fee claim. The talcum powder claim is a No Win No Fee claim. What this basically means is under this agreement, your No Win No Fee solicitors will provide you with legal representation without charging any upfront fees or costs.
If a No Win No Fee claim is successful, and you receive a settlement, your solicitors will be entitled to a percentage of the compensation awarded to you.
However, if the claim is unsuccessful and you don’t receive any compensation, you’ll not be required to pay your No Win No Fee solicitors’ fees.
What's the purpose of a No Win No Fee agreement?
The purpose of a No Win No Fee agreement is to make legal services more accessible to individuals who may not have the financial means to pay for legal representation up-front. It allows people to pursue a claim without the risk of incurring significant costs if they don’t succeed.
Instead, your solicitors will bear the risk of not being paid for their time and effort if the claim is unsuccessful.
However, it’s important to carefully review the terms of the agreement with your solicitors. You need to fully understand any potential expenses that may still be payable in the event of an unsuccessful outcome.
