Your Guide to No Win, No Fee Solicitors

As specialist fatal accident solicitors we can work for free if the case is lost  so you have nothing to worry about by instructing us. A lot of people are concerned about legal costs but these days solicitors can now work for free if the claim is lost. Some solicitors do not so you should be careful who you obtain advice from.

You, your family and friends are already distressed by the loss of a loved one but if the deceased was the bread winner, the financial worries can be immense. Whether you can afford a specialist solicitor will be the furthest from your mind when instructing our fatal accident team here at R James Hutcheon Solicitors. We will represent you knowing that you will be fully protected and expertly represented throughout the case.

Ask a Solicitor :

‘How Much Do I Pay If I Win Compensation?’

Most good fatal accident claim solicitors will often work under a NO WIN NO FEE agreement.  However since a change in the law and legal cut backs, Solicitors often now have to charge their clients a percentage up to 25% of the compensation recovered by bereaved families if they win, still nothing if the claim is lost.

By instructing us, subject to certain conditions, you can keep 100% of the compensation.

£10,000 – 25% (Solicitor Fees) = £7,500 left to you

£10,000 – 0% (Our Fees) = £10,000 left to you.

That can be a big saving as fatal accident claims are often complex and involve a lot of legal work which will often result in a quarter deduction.  In simple terms what his means is for every £10,000 of compensation recovered, you may have to pay your fatal injury claim solicitor £2,500.
