If you have had an accident and are looking into claiming compensation then you are possibly asking: who pays for a no win no fee claim?
The answer to this question is simple: the party to blame for your accident will pay your compensation as well as the majority of your legal costs*.
In order to take a no win no fee claim, you must ensure that the solicitor you have instructed is a no win no fee solicitor.
If you lose your case then you will not have to pay any fees. In some instances, you will be given the option to take out After Event Insurance. This means that if you do lose your case then certain costs (including court fees and medical report fees) will be covered. You will not have to pay the ATE premium until your case has been concluded and will only have to pay the premium if you recover compensation, not if you do not.
