terms and conditions
Below is a summary of our Terms and Conditions. If you would like further information or a copy of our full Terms of Business, then please contact us at email@example.com
TJL Solicitors work on a no win, no fee basis but before we start processing your claim you must adhere to our conditional fee agreement.
If you win your case you will be responsible for our basic costs plus our success fee. The basic costs are usually paid by the defendant (the other side) or their insurers, and the success fee is usually paid by you. If you have any queries, please contact us.
If your claim is unsuccessful, you will not be liable for our firm’s costs, but you would be liable to pay our disbursements – money we have to pay to other people for information on your case – and your opponent’s costs and disbursements.
We strongly advise that you insure against the risk of having to pay your opponent’s costs and disbursements.
If you end the conditional fee agreement before you win or lose, you will also have to pay our basic charges and disbursements.
If you already have legal expenses insurance this may cover the cost of your claim. In such cases agreement will be reached on how best to fund your claim. Please contact TJL Solicitors for more information.
In most circumstances, you will be covered by the terms of the no win, no fee agreement, however there may be cases where this will not apply. Please contact TJL Solicitors for further information and full terms of business.

Conditional Fee Arrangement
A Conditional Fee Arrangement (CFA) or no win no fee medical negligence claim removes the financial risk for you in making a claim for compensation. The legal fees from your case are conditional on the success of the no win no fee negligence claim so if you win your case you will be responsible for your solicitors’ basic costs as well as their success fee. The basic costs are however usually paid by the other side while the success fee is normally paid by you.
If the no win no fee negligence claim is unsuccessful, then you would be liable to pay the disbursements (court costs, experts’ fees and similar expenses) of your firm of no win no fee medical negligence solicitors as well as the other side’s costs and disbursements. It is normally advised to take out insurance to cover any possibility of paying the opposing side’s costs.
You should note that if you end the no win, no fee arrangement before the case is decided then you will have to pay your solicitors’ basic charges and disbursements. Also while you will be covered by the terms of a no win, no fee arrangement, however there may be cases where this will not fully apply. Click here to view the Fixed Terms for our CFA Agreements in full. Please note; these terms only apply where you have signed a CFA post April 2014 which specifically refers to Part 1 and Part 2. This document is Part 2 of that agreement.
