When I had to take somebody to court my solicitors offered me a No Win, No Fee scheme but on reading the small-print I found that if we won the case, I would be liable for the (significantly higher) legal fees which they would then recover from the other party. This is all straightforward if the other party is an insurance company or has plenty of assets. In my case, the other party might easily not have had adequate resources to pay the increased legal bill and were her assets inadequate, I would be liable for any shortfall.
But it important to remember that any solicitor only takes on your case to make money for himself, not primarily to provide a service to the customer. That applies to all people who sell their labour in any circumstances. I'm not running down solicitors.
Having your case accepted by a 'no win, no fee' is a very good indication that money is coming your way, and also that you won't have to pay anything yourself even if things don't go as expected.
