Infographic: Changes to No Win No Fee Agreements


“2013 marks a major change in the way personal injury claims are funded, and National Accident Helpline, the UK’s most experienced claims company, is warning members of the public to beware of companies offering what seems too good to be true.

The Government introduced changes to the way personal injury claims are funded on April the 1st this year.

One of the biggest changes is that now, successful claimants may not be able to recover all of their solicitor’s fees from the losing side, and may have to cover any shortfall from the compensation they receive.

National Accident Helpline is warning anyone who is thinking of making a claim that there are a number of personal injury companies out there claiming to offer ‘no win no fee agreements’ and ‘100% compensation’ (meaning the claimant does not have to contribute towards their solicitor’s fees from the compensation awarded), when in fact there could be hidden costs and charges. National Accident Helpline wants to ensure that members of the public are made fully aware of all the ‘no win no fee’ changes and the way the legal costs are calculated, and have created an infographic explaining the key changes that affect ‘no win no fee’ claims.
