No Win No Fee

Since 2013 there has been no provision of legal aid for clinical negligence claims, so the offer of no win no fee for those clients is generally available. These conditional fee arrangements mean that generally, if a claim is not successful, then the client will not be liable for any costs.

If your case is accepted on this basis, your solicitor will be able to give you more information on how this arrangement works and if your own claim will be suitable for this arrangement.
