    How Does The ‘No win, No fee’ Arrangement Work For Injury Cases in Queensland?

    How Does The ‘No win, No fee’ Arrangement Work For Injury Cases in Queensland?

    Almost all personal injury claims in Queensland are done on a no win, no fee basis. A no win, no fee arrangement means the injured party isn’t required to pay up front legal fees and the lawyers are only paid if the claim is successful. Without a no win, no fee arrangement, many Queenslanders would not be in a position to pursue a claim and have access to justice.

    Suffering an injury can be a traumatic experience and navigating the legal process to seek compensation can add an additional layer of stress. In Queensland, the ‘no win, no fee’ legal model provides a viable option for individuals seeking legal representation without the financial burden. This article aims to guide you through the process of finding a ‘no win, no fee’ injury lawyer in Queensland, ensuring you have the support you need during challenging times.

    Understanding ‘No Win, No Fee’


    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 percentage does the law firm take?


    A common question is what percentage of a settlement the lawyer will charge. This is known as a contingency fee and is not allowed in Queensland. However, law firms can offer you a percentage cap on fees, which means if the work they do is more than that agreed percentage, they will reduce their fees, this is an excellent assurance for you that the fees will never exceed that agreed percentage.

    Our fee guarantee


    At Trilby Misso we honour the 50:50 rule, what that means is, regardless of how much work we do, we will never charge fees that exceed the amount you walk away with after paying any refunds and disbursements. In the event the work we do exceeds what you stand to walk away with, we will reduce our fees so that our payment never exceeds what you receive in your hand.

    No expensive uplift fees


    Understanding if your lawyer will charge an uplift fee is important. At Trilby Misso, we do NOT charge an uplift fee. An uplift fee can be a charge of up to 25% of the lawyer fees, this can amount to a significant amount of money from your settlement.
