What happens if I lose my case?
Losing your personal injury case is obviously the worst case scenario. No one seeks a claim hoping to lose, so it can be a disappointing reality. Of course, you're bound to be a little disheartened, but the big question is: what exactly happens if you lose your case?
The answer to that question can be broken down into three segments. Before you get too concerned about losing your case, learn the specifics of no win no fee claims. While it's not ideal to lose your case, it's definitely not the end of the world or your financial stability.

Will I receive any compensation?
If you lose your case, it is likely because you were unable to adequately prove that the injury was the result of someone else's negligence or wilful intent. Alternatively, you may not have adequately proved that your injury required compensation.
Does that sound like you? If so, you are out of luck in terms of compensation. If you lose your case, you are not going to receive compensation. You will only receive compensation if you win your case!
Who will pay my solicitor fees?
The great thing about no win no fee claims is that even if you lose your case, you will not have to pay your injury solicitor any fees. This means that there is no harm in trying to obtain compensation on the no win no fee basis. If you win, you receive compensation. If you lose, you do not owe a cent.
Your solicitor will not be paid unless you win your case. Therefore, if you lose your case, no one will pay your solicitor fees. This works out well because you always know that your solicitor has your best interest at heart.
How can my solicitor afford that?
No win no fee solicitors compensate for the nature of their cases by only accepting those that they believe they can win. It only makes sense that they would choose this route. Why would they want to spend time working on a case that they do not believe can win? They are very concerned with winning each of their cases in order to receive payment for their time and effort.
Be prepared for your first meeting with your solicitor. Bring evidence of your suffering in the form of a doctor's analysis and have proof that the injury was the result of negligence. The solicitor will be more likely to accept your case if you do!
