Jefferies Solicitors work on a no win, no fee* basis, which means we get paid only if we win the case for you.
Yes, no win, no fee* is still applicable. If you lose your no win, no fee personal injury or accident 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.
*While you are protected from these costs, your solicitor may, with your agreement, take out insurance on your behalf as part of your no win, no fee compensation agreement. This will cover expenses not covered under the no win, no fee agreement or QOCS, such as medical reports that are obtained to support your claim.
‘After the event’ insurance covers expenses such as court fees and medical reports. There is a premium to pay for this insurance cover but you will not 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 the team at Michael Jefferies Injury Lawyers will explain your options to you in full.
We will answer all your questions about no win, no fee and make sure you’re comfortable with every aspect of your claim before we proceed with your compensation claim.
Please note – In limited circumstances, fees may be charged if your compensation claim is not successful. These circumstances are explained in our No Win, No Fee* Agreement and usually involve cases where there has been dishonesty. In addition, if you fail to attend a medical appointment arranged for you, the doctor may charge a non-attendance fee.
This firm is not authorised under the Financial services and Markets Act 2000 but because we are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority of England and Wales, we are able, in certain circumstances, to offer a limited range of investment services to clients. We can provide these investment services if they are an incidental part of the professional services we have been engaged to provide.
