No Win No Fee Charges Explained

Rest assured, you pay nothing if your claim fails. We only make deductions from your compensation if it succeeds. Below we explain how no win no fee charges and costs work. We guarantee a minimum of 75% of damages recovered. There is no further contribution towards costs regardless of any legal costs which have been incurred or not recovered for whatever reason.

When considering a personal injury claim, you may be worried that you'll be left out of pocket if your claim is unsuccessful or even that most of your compensation will be taken up by solicitor's fees.

At Alan Curtis Solicitors we do everything we can to avoid you being impacted financially because of your accident. Recovering from an injury can be costly, and we know how important it is for you to get support to cover the costs by adding your additional losses like treatment costs, consultation fees and out of pocket expenses.

After you've suffered a painful injury which wasn't your fault, you do not deserve to be left under financial pressure.

We have measures in place to protect you from no win no fee hidden costs and charges, so there won't be any surprises along the way.

You can speak to us for free, impartial advice on 0800 065 4333 or fill in our online form above. We'll be happy to answer your questions and can help you understand whether you could make a claim.
