We will assess your claim on a No Win No Fee basis and determine how successful your claim is likely to be based on the information you provide. This initial consultation is 100% free, confidential and with no obligation to proceed.
What is a No Win No Fee Agreement?
A No Win No Fee agreement (also known as a conditional fee agreement or CFA) is simply a term used to describe the agreement between us, the Solicitor and you, the person making the injury claim. This agreement states that you will not be charged if your claim for personal injury compensation is not successful. To summarise, "no win no fee" implies that you should not have to pay any solicitor fees if you do not win your case. You should therefore receive 100% compensation for your personal injury claim if you do win your case and you have pre-event Legal Expenses Insurance.
If the claim is won, your Solicitor will be paid part of their fees from the other party, usually the at-fault parties insurance company. We assess all claims on its merits with the information provided at the start of your claim, this helps us determine its likelihood of success. This allows us to inform you whether or not we will be able to accept your case on a 'No Win, No Fee' basis.
In 1995, the UK introduced no win no fee legislation in order to give everyone a fair chance at claiming for their accidents even if they didn’t have the finances to pay for their own legal representative. The legislation has recently changed. From April 2013, solicitors in England and Wales can still offer a no win no fee service but clients may have to contribute towards legal costs from the compensation they receive.
Accident Assistance will not charge you a penny if your claim is deemed unsuccessful. Years of experience helps us to predict whether your personal injury claim has a reasonable chance of success before we start acting for you. Claim with the confidence that you won't pay if you lose!

Pre-event Legal Expenses Insurance
It is possible that you have legal expenses insurance but are unaware of its existence. It can be an additional benefit of a bank account or an insurance policy that you have previously purchased. Our No Win No Fee solicitors will review this upon taking on a case should you believe you have legal expenses insurance.
Legal expenses insurance can provide you with cover for any costs you could incur for legal advice and proceedings but it is important to check the policy to see what it covers. It can often be used instead of a 'No Win, No Fee' agreement and you may choose to opt for this method to fund your claim should you have this insurance.
