When considering a medical negligence claim for compensation, you want to be sure about how it can be funded and that you will be represented with no cost to you. A No Win No Fee Agreement is a way to fund your medical negligence claim without financial risk to you, so if you lose your case, there will not be any cost to you.
Formally known as a Conditional Fee Agreement, A No Win No Fee medical negligence Agreement is a funding arrangement for victims of negligent care who want to make a compensation claim. Under this arrangement, there is no financial risk to you, as you don’t need to worry about funding your claim yourself. If your claim is unsuccessful there will be no costs to you. If your case wins, the legal costs are typically recovered from the defendant (negligent party).
You may also need to pay a success fee to the Medical claims solicitor representing you. This is a percentage of the compensation award – as agreed between you and your medical negligence solicitors at the start of your claim – and it is determined on a case by case basis. The % is deducted from the compensation awarded for “general damages” (damages for pain and suffering), but this does not include damages for future loss of earnings, future care costs and equipment needs for which there is no deduction from damages.
The success fee ranges between 0 – 25% but will never exceed 25% of your general damages (not including damages for future care or loss or earnings) and the amount depends on the individual circumstances surrounding the claim, including:
In the event that you terminate the No Win No Fee agreement with a Panel Law Firm outside of the cancellation period, then you may have to pay a termination fee to the law firm. It is important that you discuss the CFA with your solicitor so you can make an informed decision.
