Our “no win no fee” arrangements

At Duncan Basheer Hannon, our personal injury lawyers believe that every Adelaide resident should have the ability to access legal representation, no matter what financial circumstances they may be in.

The standard definition for “no win no fee” is where a client has limited financial ability to pay for a lawyer and the lawyer believes there is a realistic chance of winning a case then a no win no fee agreement will be used.

How does “no win no fee” work?

Firstly, you come in for a no obligation interview to determine whether a no win no fee arrangement is available for your circumstances. When an agreement is made, we begin processing your claim. If your claim is not successful, you do not pay any legal fees.  If your claim is successful, your legal fees will be deducted from the settlement.

Which cases does “no win no fee” apply?

No win no fee is usually available in personal injury related cases like workers compensation, motor vehicle accident and medical law cases.  In cases not involving compensation such as family law or commercial litigation, no win no fee will not be available.

When do Duncan Basheer Hannon offer “no win no fee”?

We will offer no win no fee if we consider your case has legal merit, you do not have the financial ability to take on the case, and you are aware of the risks that if your claim is not successful that you may have to pay the other party’s costs. It should be noted that this is always a risk in litigation.

What’s next?

If you have a legal case that you think may result in monetary compensation, you should talk to us about entering into a no win no fee arrangement.

If you have suffered from medical negligence, have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, or have any other personal injury law claim, Duncan Basheer Hannon may be able to help. Our first interview is on a no obligation basis.
