No Win No Fee OR Expenses*
The objective of our policy is to never leave you out of pocket in the unlikely event that your personal injury case is unsuccessful and you recover no compensation for your losses.
Not all 'No Win No Fee' policies are the same. While all 'No Win No Fee' policies should cover you for the legal fees charged by a law firm if your case is not successful, ours goes one important step further.
We also cover you for any expenses or disbursements that we incur, such as medical report and court fees. These can amount to thousands of dollars. Not all other firms do.
We pledge never to leave you, our client, out of pocket in the unlikely event that your action is not successful.
Why our No Win No Fee OR Expenses* policy provides the best financial protection
Senior partner, Jodie Harris, explains how our No Win No Fee OR Expenses* policy is better and will protect you financially from legal costs and potentially expensive out of pocket expenses.
How it works
Under our No Win No Fee OR Expenses* policy on fees and out of pocket expenses, we will waive our fees if you don’t win a case that we have agreed to fund, and pick up the tab on your out of pocket expenses.
Out of pocket expenses here are counted as medical reports, court fees and many other expenses that other firms would typically require you to pay in the event the case is lost.
If we don't think you have a reasonable chance of winning a lump sum, we'll advise you not to proceed.
We will always provide you with a complete written explanation of all of our fees, for your agreement, before we act on your behalf.
If you have a concern about your legal fees, just ask us. We'll be honest with you about your chances because we're on your side.
*Exclusions: Please note that the No Win No Fee or Expenses* policy only applies to personal injury cases and not to Family and Relationship Law, Employment Law or other types of legal services which are not injury related.
Free consultation on any legal matter
We offer a free initial consultation on any legal matter, the length of which may vary depending on the type of legal issue you have.
Any fees that may be charged will be discussed during your initial consultation and agreed with you prior to us taking action on your behalf.
Goods and Services Tax (GST)
As GST applies to legal costs and disbursements, RCT includes GST in all discussions about the fees you may incur. GST on our services and disbursements is calculated at the rate of 10%.
You will be advised in writing of the legal costs and disbursements that may be charged in accordance with the Legal Profession Uniform Law Application Act 2014.
If you have any queries in relation to our No Win No Fee OR Expenses* policy and how it applies to you, please ask your lawyer.
