The idea of a Conditional Fee Agreement (“CFA”) is to enable us as your solicitors to take on your case on a “No Win, No Fee” basis i.e. we will not charge you anything if you lose the case. We will do this for you if we think that we can win the case.
At the outset of your case or as soon as we are able to do so, we will let you know whether we feel able to undertake your claim on a No Win No Fee basis.
This means that if your case is successful you should be awarded compensation.
Where successful you will usually be entitled to recover some of the costs from your opponent. You will be given credit for any costs recovered against what you will have to pay. You will have to pay us a “success fee” but this will be limited so that your contribution is no more than 25% of your damages for pain, suffering, loss of amenity and past losses.If you do not recover compensation then we will not charge you for the work that we have carried out. Our ability to offer such an agreement will depend entirely upon the merits of your case and will be discussed with you before you formally instruct us.
