No Win No fee* – Jefferies Solicitors
Jefferies Solicitors work on a no win no fee* basis, which means we get paid only if we win the case for you.
What if I lose my compensation claim? Does no win no fee still apply?
Yes, no win no fee* is still applicable. If you lose your no win no fee personal injury or accident compensation claim, you won’t have to pay your solicitor and under new rules known as qualified one way costs shifting or QOCS you will not be liable for the costs of your opponent *So you are protected from these costs, however your solicitor may with your agreement take out insurance on your behalf as part of your no win no fee compensation agreement to cover expenses such as medical reports that are obtained to support your claim as these are not covered under the no win no fee agreement or QOCS.
After The Event Insurance
This is called ‘after the event’ insurance. It covers expenses such as court fees and medical reports. There is a premium to pay for this insurance cover but you don’t need to pay this at the outset. If you lose your case, the insurance company pays the premium as it is insured and you will only have to pay this premium if you win. You can choose whether to take this insurance out or not and we will explain your options to you in full.
