    Are There Any Fees Associated With Hiring Trilby Misso For My Case?

    Are There Any Fees Associated With Hiring Trilby Misso For My Case?

    At Trilby Misso there are only legal fees associated with hiring us if you are successful in your personal injury case. This is often referred to as a no win, no fee arrangement.

    When we meet, the team at Trilby Misso will take the time to ensure you fully understand the no win, no fee agreement, what it means for you and what, if any, risks exist.

    The benefit of hiring a no win, no fee lawyer is that it allows people access to justice that they would not otherwise be in a financial position to pursue. Suffering an injury and the impact of that injury can be financially stressful, having to pay for a lawyer upfront would be impossible for so many Queenslanders. A no win, no fee injury lawyer means that injured people have the opportunity to engage a lawyer and pursue their claim without paying upfront legal fees.

    You will be working with your no win, no fee lawyer on a matter incredibly important to you, it is crucial you have a clear line of communication and feel free to ask questions. This will begin with the no win, no fee agreement. After the lawyer has explained the terms of the agreement and any risks that may exist, if you have any questions, it is important that you ask and seek clarification of anything you are unsure of. The lawyer understands that this is a new experience for you, so they will not judge you for asking questions. Good questions to ask your no win no fee injury lawyer are:

      • What happens if I lose the case?
      • Are there any upfront fees or costs to pay?
      • Are there any hidden costs?

    What happens if I lose the case?

    If your claim is unsuccessful, it is important that you understand what, if any, expenses you may be responsible for. Some no win, no fee injury lawyers may require you to pay for any external expenses incurred, like report and search fees. At Trilby Misso WE DO NOT REQUIRE ANY FEES OR EXPENSES TO BE PAID IF YOU ARE UNSUCCESSFUL.

    There is always a risk if you proceed to a trial and lose, that a Judge may make an order that you pay the insurer’s legal fees (less than 2% of cases in Queensland proceed to a trial). The likelihood of this happening is something you should discuss with your no win, no fee injury lawyer. They will be able to advise you after taking into consideration the very specific details of your case.
