What is No Win No Fee?

No Win No Fee arrangements

No Win, No Fee is an agreement that is made between plaintiffs and law firms before legal proceedings can begin on behalf of an injured person.

It’s also commonly known as a conditional fee arrangement or cost agreement and designed to give people with limited finances access to the justice they deserve without paying any upfront fees.

The no win no fee lawyers at Australian Accident Helplines offer this guarantee to victims of no fault accidents so they can start their claim for compensation without any financial worries or obligations.

 

History of no win no fee

The no win no fee personal injury claims agreement was introduced progressively throughout Australia during the 1990s.

The implementation sought to relieve worry in people looking for justice after an accident that wasn’t their fault.

Before this, an unsuccessful plaintiff would pay for all of the legal costs involved with making a claim out of their own pocket on a pay as you go basis. If their case was successful, they would keep all the compensation awarded to them.

However, there was one problem, not everybody could afford it and thousands of innocent Australians were losing their right to compensation.

Please find an in depth synopsis regarding contingency costs here or give one of our experts a call on 1800 106 107.

 

Who is eligible?

Eligibility is determined on a case by case basis, however, as one of the largest claims management companies in Australia we offer our guarantee when other firms can’t.

Before a decision can be made our lawyers will go through the checklist like the one we have listed below:

  • Your claim must have legal merit
  • Without an arrangement, you would be able to get the justice you deserve
  • You are aware of the costs involved in preparing and running your claim
  • You have been informed of the risks if your claim is unsuccessful.
  • You have valid medical reports to prove your injuries if applicable

There may also be other criteria that could affect your eligibility to claim.

For more information regarding your eligibility, speak to one of our specialist advisors today.
