What is Best’s
No Win, No Fee. Forever.
Promise?

Most Queensland personal injury firms talk about No Win, No Fee. But what does it actually mean, and how is it different at different firms?

What does No Win, No Fee Forever, actually mean? How is Best’s guarantee different?

We know that No Win, No Fee compensation lawyers sound great – but what does this actually mean for you and your case?

Our No Win, No Fee, Forever Promise means that if we don’t win your case we won’t charge you anything. While it’s pretty unlikely that we won’t achieve your Best outcome (we have a 99% success rate), this extra guarantee ensures you can feel 100% protected in starting any case with us.

At Best, you are our focus – we want you to be able to place your trust in us without any risk.

So, what else should you know about No Win, No Fee accident claims?

“No win no fee” is a term used to describe a fee agreement between a lawyer and client where the lawyer only gets paid their fee if the client’s case is successful. That is, if they win the case or secure a settlement, they receive a fee.

If the case is not successful, the lawyer does not receive a fee for their services. However, it’s important to note that there may still be certain costs that the client is responsible for, such as court fees or expenses for expert witnesses, and these should be outlined in the agreement. At Best, if your case is not successful, we will cover the cost of your disbursements, such as court fees and witness fees, so you aren’t left out of pocket

The fee that no win no fee lawyers take, often called a success fee, is generally capped at a percentage of the compensation awarded. The exact percentage can vary based on factors such as the complexity of the case and the terms of the agreement with the lawyer.

In Queensland, most personal injury firms charge client’s up to 50% of the settlement reached. This is the legal maximum allowed. As Best, we apply of cap of 30% plus GST to our fees, which means you walk away with more in your pocket at the end of the day.

A no win no fee agreement can provide access to legal representation for individuals who might not otherwise be able to afford it, as it eliminates the need for upfront legal fees. However, if the case is successful, the lawyer’s fee will be deducted from the compensation awarded.

Whether a no win no fee agreement is worth it can depend on individual circumstances, such as the potential value of the claim and the client’s financial situation. It’s recommended to discuss this with a lawyer before deciding.

The length of a no win no fee claim can vary widely depending on the nature of the case, the complexity of the legal issues involved, and other factors. Some claims can be settled in a matter of months, while others can take several years. Your lawyer should be able to give you a rough estimate based on the specifics of your case.

A no win no fee agreement can provide a way for individuals to pursue a legal claim without the risk of being out of pocket for legal fees if the case is unsuccessful. However, it’s important to understand all the terms of the agreement before signing, as there could still be other costs that you’re responsible for. Always make sure to ask your lawyer to clarify any terms or conditions you don’t understand.

Best Injury Lawyers are award winning Queensland Personal Injury Lawyers with awards for WorkCover Claims, Workers’ Compensation Claims, Motor Accident Claims, Car Accident Claims and Public Liability Claims.

We pride ourselves on the work we do, and we are proud to have the awards to back it up.

We know it can be overwhelming to know which firm to trust with your road accident claim, there’s a lot of us out there! We also know it can sound a little biased when we tell you to choose Best.

There are a few reasons we think you should choose Best as your Personal Injury Claim lawyers:

  1. We hire the Best people: our team aren’t only some of the sharpest legal minds in Queensland (no really, we win awards for it) but they’re also genuinely good people, who care about their clients. When we say we hire the Best, we mean we hire people who care about every case and every client, people you’d want fighting for you that you’d also happily catch up over a cuppa with.
  2. We will never leave you out of pocket: how so?
    • No Win, No Fee. Forever. You will only be charged if we win your case, so you can rest easy that we will be doing everything we can to put you in a better place than when you started your claim with us.
    • 30% fee cap. Some firms take around 50% of your compensation claim, we cap at 30% plus GST to cover our fees (so even if our fees are more than that, we won’t charge you for it).
    • We cover out-of-pocket expenses. There are necessary expenses that must be incurred to successfully run your claim, because we want you to focus on your recovery and not the cost of your case. We will cover the cost for outlays needed to run your case, and you will only be expected to pay for these if your case is successful (these will be added as a part of your compensation claim, for the insurer to pay for).
  3. We take on cases other firms won’t, and we win them: we have a history of taking on claims other firms won’t, because we’re not afraid of hard work and because we know the difference a successful claim will make to you and your life.
