What is no win no fee and why is this important?

No win no fee is a marketing slogan, it has no legal basis, anyone can say no win no fee. The reality is all in the small print, what does it actually mean. 

Digby Brown offer a truly no win no fee arrangement which means you, the client will not have to pay a penny throughout your case. And if the case is lost, we will pay all the other side’s legal cost. 

No win no fee explained

Digby Brown Solicitors has for years offered a truly no win no fee service for funding personal injury cases.

Digby Brown funds your case using its own arms length funding company Compensate which insures your case and we pay that policy cost.  So that takes care of the bill in the event of losing your case.

That is only half the story, the real benefit of the way Digby Brown funds the case is our ability to then fully investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident. Firstly to establish who is to blame, if this is disputed, and secondly to engage with experts in a number of fields to fully understand the nature of your injuries and the long term effects of those injuries.

     Will you be able to return to work?

     Will you be able to do the same job?

     Will your injury cause long term effects?

     Will your injuries impact on your ability to work in the future?

Just a few of the many questions we will need to consider and seek expert advice on to establish the correct level of compensation you need to receive to put you back financially to the position you were before your accident.

All these experts cost money, our funding solution for your case pays for these experts and allows us to fully prepare your case. 

Why is no win no fee funding important for personal injury claims?

In most personal injury cases we will be dealing with an Insurance company and their overriding priority is to offer you as little money as possible.

In a great deal of cases the person at fault is not disputed, the argument is all about the level of compensation. If you don’t have the financial backing to fully investigate the case and be prepared to go to court, if necessary, the insurance company can get away with under settling the case.

Just read some of the many case studies on the website about how often the final settlement we receive is more than double and sometimes up to 10 times as much as the Insurer was prepared to offer. 

So if you are considering another firm or a claims agency, remember to ask some key questions:

  1. How do they fund the case?
  2. What medical expertise will they seek to help bolster your case?
  3. Are they prepared to litigate (go to court) on your behalf to ensure you get the compensation you deserve?
