No Win No Fee* Sunderland
No win no fee* solicitors work in this way (also known as Conditional Fee Agreements or CFA) and over the last decade they have become the most common route for UK clients to fund personal injury claims.
Serving Sunderland, we have operated in this fashion for many years as we feel it’s the most effective and financially sound way in which we can represent our clients.
It works for you as it means you don’t have to pay for expensive legal representation and can get quick and easy access to the legal system when making a claim.
It is a very simple premise; if one of our lawyers agree to represent you then we will draw up an easy to understand CFA agreement. Once signed we will start the process off to winning you the maximum compensation amounts possible by UK law, and we will only be paid if we are successful.
We only take on cases where we feel our no win no fee* solicitors have a chance of winning, so the majority of people that we work with will be compensated for their accident in as quick a time as possible. Plus, in most cases our clients don’t even need to attend any proceeding as the majority of claims are settled outside of court.
No Win No Fee* Solicitors Sunderland
When you employ the services of a no win no fee* solicitor serving Sunderland through our firm we will be 100% transparent and honest with you from start to finish. Each step of the way we will update you on what’s happening and how the case is proceeding. No win no fee* injury and accident claims are available to most claimants, depending on the circumstances.
No win no fee is subject to our panel’s Sunderland personal injury solicitor agreeing to take on your case and appropriate insurance cover being in place. When a compensation claim is successful, there will be a Success Fee. Success Fees will not exceed 25% of recovered damages including VAT. This fee will be subject to your individual circumstances. There are a few rare exceptions, which the panel solicitor for Sunderland can explain to you in more detail. If no damages are recovered, then no fee is payable by you. Your agreement will be direct with the panel solicitor in Sunderland, who is a third party and not owned or employed by us. Early termination fees may apply if you decide not to proceed or fail to follow reasonable legal advice. Such fees would be based on an hourly fee rate as set by that panel solicitor. We may receive a payment from the Sunderland personal injury solicitors to whom we pass details if your case is accepted.

How We Work For You
When you first call us we will ask some very simple questions about the circumstances surrounding the accident. One of our solicitors will assess the circumstances and will quickly tell you whether we can act on your behalf.
Once we have your instructions to represent you we will then commence the following course of action:
- Collate any medical reports from your doctor or hospital
- Contact the police to get any official police reports
- Contact any witnesses to collect statements supporting the claim
- Contact third party insurance companies and come to an agreement
We try to resolve legal matters as quickly as possible, and in some cases will even be able to get advance payments on compensation payouts if you have urgent financial needs.
No Win No Fee* – More Information
Anyone in the UK and Sunderland who has been injured in an accident is legally permitted to file for an accident claim. However, it is only permitted if it’s possible to find a third party at fault. In other words if the accident was due to someone’s negligence.
However, historically many people would not pursue compensation due to the costs involved in hiring lawyers. This was deterring many people from seeking justice, even if they had suffered both physical injury and financial losses.
That’s why the no win no fee* accident claim was introduced. It lets people stand a good chance of getting the personal injury compensation they deserve, despite not being able to afford a solicitor in normal circumstances.
Fees Depends on the Circumstances of the Claim
Since April of 2013, UK legislation has meant that no win no fee* solicitors are allowed to agree with you a percentage of your successful claim as their payment. All lawyers will have differing levels, and in most cases you will need to agree this with the firm first.
We personally set very low percentage figures when compared to other no win no fee* lawyers, and the success rates will vary depending on the complexity of the accident claim. To cover legal expenses and time, our solicitors can charge up to 25% of the settlement sum on the result of a successful claim. If you are not successful you do not pay anything. Call us to find out so we can tell you more once we know the details of your claim.
Time Limits of 3 Years on Most Cases
Please be aware, that in most cases you have a time limit of three years within to make a claim so it’s imperative that you contact our Sunderland office as soon as possible. This time limit does not apply to people involved in an accident under the age of 18, or in some industrial diseases cases such as asbestos claims.
