What is a No Win No Fee Military Claim?
All of our military claim are funded by Conditional Fee Agreements. These agreements are commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee Agreement”.
The nature of these No Win No Fee Agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim is unsuccessful for any reason (liability or medical grounds for example) the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time spent up to that point in the claim process. For taking this risk, it is common for all law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a percentage of the client’s compensation at the end of a successful claim. We cap our % fee at a maximum of 25% of our client’s damages.
Law firms fees are mostly paid by the insurers of the losing party, not the client personally and no upfront fees are required to be paid by the client to get a no win no fee claim up and running.
If you have any questions about no win no fee agreements and how your claim will be funded then please contact our experts, we will be happy to discuss this with you.
How long after an accident or diagnosis can I make a claim?
In the majority of military injury claims, you are able to make a claim within three years from the date of the accident, the date of diagnosis or the date you first linked your symptoms with your employment.
If you are unsure if you can claim due to the time elapsed since your accident, contact Nigel Askew Solicitors today, we will be happy to discuss your claim circumstances and advise you whether you are still able to make a claim.
How long do No Win No Fee Claims take from start to finish?
All claims are different and the time it takes to successfully settle a claim depends on several key factors including the severity of your injuries and the complexity of the legal issues surrounding your case.
Military claims involving hearing loss, PTSD and NFCI rely strongly on medical evidence and must follow strict legal protocol, which means they can take anywhere from 12 months to 3 or 4 years to reach a successful conclusion.
Every claim is different but rest assured, our solicitors are experts and we will keep you updated throughout the claims process and offer the highest levels of advice and support.
