"Friendly, professional and most importantly, they make me feel that they are 100% fighting for me. I feel as though I have been talking to a friend when I have spoken to First4Lawyers and I've never felt intimidated or made to feel stupid if I've asked them what is probably an obvious question."

Mrs B, Newcastle

What is No Win No Fee?

No Win No Fee is an arrangement between you and your solicitor where if your claim for compensation isn’t successful then they won’t take a fee from you for the work they have done.

No Win No Fee Claim Process
How to Claim

Claiming through us is simple and easy. Here we explain how everything works and what you’ll need to do.

To elaborate, if you win, you will only pay legal fees from the money you are awarded. If your claim is unsuccessful, there’s no charge. In short, you have nothing to lose.

What Do You Need To Know About No Win No Fee?

Is First4lawyers a free service?

We don’t charge you for your initial contact with First4Lawyers. Our advisors will happily discuss and assess your legal requirements for free. Then, depending on what support you require and where you are located in the UK, they will advise on the next steps be it paid for legal advice or a no win no fee arrangement.

Will I be able to make a No Win No Fee claim?

The majority of our personal injury and medical negligence claims are made on a No Win No Fee basis. However if you are based in Scotland or Northern Ireland then there is differing legislation on how these services work. In some cases we can also offer No Win No Fee claims for other areas of law but one of our advisors will let you know if this is possible before any work is carried out.

Do I have to make a contribution to legal fees from any compensation won for a personal injury or medical negligence claim?

Yes. Due to changes in legislation solicitors can no longer recover all their legal costs from the defendant. However the most you will have to contribute is 25% of any compensation won. Your solicitor will agree the exact amount prior to any work commencing and it will only be taken on a No Win No Fee basis.

Can I call you for free advice?

Yes. Our team of experts are more than happy to help and will answer any questions you may have. You can call us free on 0808 231 6676 (0333 577 8866 for mobiles), 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

Can I use my Legal Expense Insurance?

You may have a legal expense insurance through a bank account or insurance policy. In which case this will cover many of the legal costs associated with your claim.

Again your solicitor will discuss this in more detail with you before any work commences.

Are there any restrictions on making a no win, no fee personal injury claim?

If you are based in England or Wales all personal injury, accident and medical negligence claims through First4Lawyers are made on a No Win No Fee basis. You won’t have to pay a single penny to any of our solicitors if a compensation claim is lost. If you are in Scotland or Northern Ireland then the rules are slightly different.

What are the rules for Northern Ireland?

You can still make medical negligence or personal injury claims in Northern Ireland but they do not operate a no win no fee facility in this country.

However at First4Lawyers our solicitors will still review your potential case for free and then advise of any associated costs and options to make a claim. If someone is claiming that they can do it on a no win no fee basis in Northern Ireland then you need to question how they are able to offer this service.

I’m making a claim in Scotland, what does it mean for me?

Personal injury claims in Scotland operate in the same No Win No Fee way as they do in England and Wales so if your claim is unsuccessful then there will be no cost to you.

Unfortunately however the No Win No Fee option does not apply to Medical Negligence claims in Scotland. Our solicitors will however be more than happy to discuss your Medical Negligence case with you and explain the options available and any costs associated with making a Medical Negligence claim before any work is undertaken.

"My first point of contact with First4Lawyers was the call agent, who was very understanding and professional in handling my call. I was nervous about talking to someone as the incident was still raw and the call agent put me at ease, explained what would happen and made sure I understood the procedure. I felt pleased I made the decision of phoning First4Lawyers."
