Most compensation legal firms will charge on a No Win No Fee arrangement. This means you are not required to pay any legal fees unless there is a successful outcome either by a verdict or settlement.
Here at Stacks Goudkamp our No Win No Fee service will cover the professional fees of our experienced lawyers as well as cover disbursements such as medical reports, court fees and expert’s fees.
Costs are payable at the conclusion of your claim once your solicitor receives settlement monies and a memorandum of professional costs and disbursements is issued.
If your matter proceeds to a determination and you are not successful, whilst no legal fees are payable to your solicitors, you are still required to pay the defendants costs and disbursements on a party /party basis. This can amount to quite a few thousand dollars.
