No win no fee and legal expenses insurance

When it comes to pursuing a no win no fee claim after a non-fault accident many are concerned by how much they will have to pay out in solicitor's fees and disbursements if their claim is unsuccessful.

When it comes to legal expenses insurance there is after-the-event (ATE) insurance and before-the-event (BTE) insurance:

Before-the-event insurance

This is a policy usually taken out alongside a car insurance or home insurance policy and is also available through other financial institutions and unions before an accident or personal injury occurs.

A policy of this type usually lasts a period of twelve months and will cost around 15 but may be provided free of cost by some car insurance companies.

BTE insurance is designed to cover your legal costs and both yours and the other party's disbursements during the claims process, so long as your insurance company believes you have a good chance of winning your case. There are other limitations with this kind of insurance which may include:

After-the-event insurance

This policy is taken out in order to cover your legal costs after you have suffered a non-fault personal injury and decided to make a claim. The cost of ATE insurance can range from 75 to 5000 according to the following factors:

However, some personal injury solicitors, such as The Claims Solicitors, will take ATE insurance out on your behalf when they accept your claim. They will even take on the cost of the premium, meaning that ATE insurance will be always be totally free when you make a no win no fee claim through The Claims Solicitors.
