12 No-win, No-fee Actions

1. Introduction

Taking legal action against someone, for example if you think they were responsible for injuring you, can be very expensive. With some kinds of case, you can use a system where you have to pay your legal fees only if you win. To do this, you use a  'conditional-fee agreement '. This leaflet explains how these work, and about other ways to fund a legal case.
