No Win No Fee? What does this mean?

No Win No Fee means when a firm takes on your claim for compensation, it will not charge you a fee for their time and effort if the claim is unsuccessful. In the event that a No Win No Fee case is lost, the solicitor will be unable to claim his/her fees from either the third party or his/her own client and must effectively write them off. The only time charges may apply is if the client decides to stop using the services of the solicitor after the 14 day cooling off period.
