At Henry Carus + Associates, we promise a No Win – No Fee policy, because we believe that You Deserve More™. Our personal injury lawyers are committed to you, and you will feel comfortable knowing that we will fight for you until your claim is successful.
We believe that the No Win – No Fee lawyer policy is a win for both the injured person and our lawyers. When you hire our law firm, we will push to get the most out of your claim and go the distance for you. We do not settle for average, and that means giving 100% each day until you have received the settlement you deserve.
HOW DO NO WIN – NO FEE LAWYERS WORK?
No Win – No Fee is an arrangement that is designed to assist those who don’t have the financial resources to pay their legal costs as they go or be able to face a legal bill if the matter is unsuccessful. This arrangement gives every Australian access to legal representation without the worry of legal costs.
If I Win My Case, What Do I Pay?
If your claim is successful, you may be charged legal fees, including a ‘success fee’. A success fee is typically a percentage added to the final legal fees (not disbursements).
Do I Pay a Percentage of my Compensation For Your Fees?
No. Many other firms quote percentages, such as 25% of your compensation if they win for you – but this is not correct. In Australia, we are allowed only to be paid for the service we provide (for our work) and an uplift fee to reflect the risks and delay in payment. We explain all of this in an easy to follow costs agreement.
What is an Uplift Fee in a No Win – No Fee Agreement?
This is an additional fee that is only payable if a matter has a successful outcome. This is calculated as a percentage of the legal fees that are otherwise payable and we are required to estimate that amount for you. An uplift fee cannot exceed 25 percent of the fees otherwise payable, and will be clearly identified in the costs agreement.
DOES NO WIN – NO FEE APPLY TO ALL CASES?
Henry Carus + Associates offers No Win – No Pay lawyer policies for all areas of compensation law including the following:
Do I Still Owe Any Amount If I Am Not Successful?
No. Many firms still hold the injured person responsible for disbursements (out of pocket expenses) even if the claim is not successful. We do not.
