If you are making a claim following a motorbike accident, chances are you are claiming personal injury compensation. As a general rule, there are no fees to pay if a motorbike accident victim makes a claim for personal injury compensation successfully.
The majority of personal injury claims, made by motorbike accident victims, are made on a “no win no fee” basis which literally means that there are no costs involved if the case is not resolved successfully. The “no win no fee” agreement, also called a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), is a cost effective and financially safe way of pursuing a motorbike accident claim.
In the event a claim for motorbike accident compensation is successful, the responsible party is then liable for paying the claimants fees which means there are no costs or fees for the victim to pay. The victim’s solicitors will seek their costs, and usually a success fee, in addition to the victim’s compensation award which means that the victim can keep 100% of their motorbike accident compensation without having to pay any legal fees at all.
So, to summarize, there are no fees involved in making a claim following a motorbike accident whether the victim’s case is successful or not.
If you are concerned about having to pay the other side’s legal fees, because your case may not be successful, you do not need to worry for two reasons:
1. A solicitor is unlikely to accept a motorbike accident claim if there are no prospects of the case being successful – in this event the solicitor will not get paid so they are unlikely to accept the case.
2. Most law firms will arrange for you to be covered by an After-the-Event policy which will cover the third party’s legal fees in the event your claim does not succeed.
