    What is a No Win No Fee Agreement in Queensland, and Why is it Right for Me?

    July 2, 2024

    What is a no win no fee agreement in Queensland, and why is it right for me?

    Personal injury claim, CTP, Compulsory Third Party, compensation, compo, damages, reimbursement, and claim are all expressions you may have heard which can mean the same thing. Assessing if you have a valid case for a no win no fee arrangement in Queensland will depend on where and how you were injured.

    The ‘no win, no fee’ agreement, also known as a conditional fee agreement, is a legal arrangement where the client is not required to pay any legal fees unless the lawyer successfully secures compensation for the client. In Queensland, this model is a common practice in personal injury cases, making legal representation accessible to those who might otherwise be unable to afford it.

    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.

    Are there any upfront fees or costs to pay?

    Some no win no fee lawyers require search and report fees to be paid upfront. At Trilby Misso, we DO NOT REQUIRE ANY FEES OR COSTS TO BE PAID UPFRONT.

    Are there any hidden costs?

    One risk in many no win no fee agreements are hidden costs like an uplift fee. Many no win no fee lawyers charge an uplift up to 25% of their fees, this can amount to a significant sum from your settlement. It is important you fully understand all terms of the agreement and any extra charges like an uplift fee. At Trilby Misso, we NEVER CHARGE AN UPLIFT FEE.

    It is recommended that you seek legal advice as to your specific circumstances so that you may fully understand your rights and obligations, and determine if a ‘no win no fee’ agreement is right for you.
