Not all Brisbane No Win, No Fee personal injury lawyers are the same. While the idea of No Fee legal sounds quite simple, some Queensland firms charge several types of hidden fees, so you often don’t know your financial commitment until you are mid-way through your legal case or when you lose.
We firmly believe in a “fair go” for all Queenslanders at Splatt Lawyers. Our 100% No Win, No Fee funding means no secret charges “pop up” when you least expect them. How it works:
Section 347 of the Legal Profession Act QLD (LPA) determines how a law firm charges fees in Queensland. Under this legislation, personal injury lawyers can bill you a maximum of 50% of your net settlement figure. This law does not mean you will be charged half of your settlement amount as your legal fee. It simply means your legal fees are capped.
If you have not had a legal claim previously managed on a No Win, No Fee basis, you could have some questions about this popular legal funding method. To learn more, contact our friendly legal team now by calling 1800 700 125.
Having a No Win No Pay case sounds risk-free (and should be), but this isn’t always true. No Fee legal agreements are not all the same because firms create their own terms and conditions. How a Queensland compensation law firm charges for an injury claim varies considerably.
Splatt Lawyers provide No Win No Fee personal injury claim legal services to Brisbane, and Queensland residents in a range of personal injury matters, including:
For most cost agreements, a "win" is defined as a settlement of your case in line with your wishes or a court-ordered award of damages in your favour. A settlement is a legal agreement between litigating parties to end their dispute. Compensation claims usually settle out of court since litigating parties want to avoid trial proceedings' high legal costs and stress.
Your lawyer's cost agreement will contain the definition of fees. Some law firms waive only the professional & barrister fees when your case fails, but you still are liable for outlays (reports and assessment). At Splatt Lawyers, we waive all costs if your claim does not succeed.
When you win your case, all law firms will charge you their professional fees and outlay costs. However, some lawyers will also charge you an uplift fee (also known as a success fee). They are legally able to bill this additional cost in Queensland.
To have the best evidence to support your case, you may need to attend medical evaluations. We fund these reports until we win your case. If you lose, you pay nothing.
At Splatt Lawyers, only fees when we win and nothing if we lose. We do not charge an uplift fee.
What if I Win?
What if I Lose?
When Splatt Lawyers wins your compensation claim, our legal costs and outlays will be deducted from your settlement. Thankfully, our fees are capped, so you will know what to expect as your lump sum payment.
If our lawyers and solicitors cannot settle your case, your legal cost agreement states you will owe nothing. This includes your disbursement expenses (cost of legal outlays).
It is likely you are concerned about what percentage a No Win No Fee lawyer will take from your payout. It’s natural to be concerned that you could be left with little compensation once you have paid your legal bill.
So, you’ll be relieved to know that Queensland compensation law protects your interests by placing a maximum limit on the professional & uplift fees charged by No Win No Fee solicitors. This rule is called the 50/50 rule.
The legal costs 50/50 rule ensures that after expenses are deducted from your settlement (along with any costs awarded in your favour), any billed professional costs cannot exceed half of the amount remaining.
Also, your uplift fee cannot exceed 25% of the professional costs. Splatt Lawyers do not charge uplift fees.
No Win No Fee legal agreements’ main benefit is ensuring you get justice through the Queensland legal system, regardless of your financial position. Time limits apply in compensation cases. Any delay can risk your chance of success. Hiring a lawyer immediately is your best option. Call Now – 1800 700 125.
Being out of work can have an enormous impact on your financial situation. It will impact your capacity to pay the legal expenses required to seek your deserved compensation. In such emotionally stressful times, a skilled No Win No Fee lawyer can help alleviate the pressure on you and your family.
A legal firm that provides No Win No Fee funding for personal injury cases has bills like their rent, payroll and all the medical and expert report costs associated with running a successful compensation claim.
Managing your legal case on a No Win No Pay basis means receiving nothing until they win your case. Because of this funding model, your lawyer or solicitor is highly engaged in ensuring you maximise your payout so they get paid, too.
When you need fast access to informed legal advice with No Win No Pay funding, it is good to know that Splatt Lawyers have ten handy Queensland locations, including:
Every Queensland law firm has its legal costs agreement, which includes their no win, no fee terms and conditions; however, they are not all the same. Certain firms will fund all your expenses and disbursement costs, while others will ask you to take out an expensive loan to cover these (disbursement funding). If your lawyer says you won’t pay professional fees if you lose, they can still charge you for the extra costs associated with your case.
Before signing with a Brisbane law firm, be clear about what you will pay in every circumstance.
With our no win, no fee Lawyers, you only pay costs if you win, and nothing at all if you lose. It’s our No Financial Risk guarantee.
Some QLD compensation law firms might ask you to agree to disbursement funding to cover the cost of your reports like expert witness, radiology, audiology, orthopaedic, barrister and court fees. Typically, these loans have a high interest rate that will be taken from the proceeds of your claim. Splatt Lawyers will not ask you to agree to a disbursement loan. We cover these costs even if you lose your case.
Good news – you can access our Brisbane No Win No Fee legal funding when your lawyer determines you have a valid claim. It’s free to find out if you qualify. Get quality legal representation now by Calling 1800 700 125.

When you work with Splatt Lawyers, we will:
As one of Queensland’s no win, no pay lawyers, we commit to honest and transparent communication using plain English. Our skilled solicitors will find the most effective path to your desired legal outcome. You can relax knowing that, just like you, we want the best possible outcome.
No Win No Fee arrangements are applied to injury compensation cases to help you get the outcome you want without upfront costs. Typically, this funding is available for road accident compensation, public place accidents and work accidents.
Your legal cost agreement will outline your billings. This contract shows your lawyer’s work to win your case and the related fees and charges. Once you retain your solicitor, they will collate the evidence required to lodge your claim.
There are multiple benefits to hiring a solicitor with no win no fee terms, including:
1) There are no upfront costs – hiring a lawyer can be expensive, and you may not have the funds to pursue the justice you deserve. No upfront costs mean you can start immediately.
2) No ongoing costs – your claim has started, and we need evidence to support your case. To do this, our legal team require medical evidence and reports. Some law firms charge disbursement costs to cover these reports, or they will ask you to agree to a disbursement loan. Splatt Lawyers is a 100% no-win no-fee law firm, so we will fund these costs until you win.
3) No fees for legal services if you fail.
No win no fee legal funding reduces your legal risk. Although you might not be billed for your lawyer’s time, you can still pay for other hidden and additional costs. With Splatt Lawyers, there are no legal fees or costs if your case fails.
A no win, no pay agreement can be helpful for people without the finances to hire a lawyer through conventional means. You might wonder whether there are any risks or drawbacks when pursuing legal help on this basis.
First, if you win your case, you won’t have the option to keep your entire compensation payout due to deducting your legal costs.
If you can afford to fund your legal case without no win no fee finance, you could keep 100% of your compensation claim if successful. The drawback here is that you might lose, and then you would be out of pocket.
Our friendly team will be happy to explain all the ins and outs of our No Pay legal funding and under what circumstances you would need to pay a legal bill.
Some people might think they can only choose a lawyer close to home. This is not the case. Modern technology makes it possible to provide comprehensive legal services to someone, regardless of where they live.
Generally, you only need an electronic device, an email account, and an internet service. You can find Splatt Lawyers in ten convenient locations in South-East QLD, but we regularly assist clients Queensland-wide.
How legal fees are calculated is outlined in the Conditional Fee Agreement signed by you and your compensation lawyers. Splatt Lawyers charge an hourly rate, but many law firms charge a lump sum.
