    There are various funding options for cases, no win no fee is just one of them. There are different forms of no win no fee agreements, theres discounted rate no win no fee, theres capped success fees set at a percentage of the damages, or theres the straight forward no win no fee with a uplift normally from 20% to 100% depending on the issues.

    If youre entering into such an arrangement then you need to look at costs, whether there is an ATE insurance available to you, and what your liabilities will be if you win, as a win doesnt always mean you win in court nor does it automatically entitle you to recover costs from the otherside, for example you may settle out of court on the basis that each party bears their own costs, this could mean you have a bill to pay plus a success fee so its important to understand your liabilities etc.

      Bear in mind that some of these CFAs leave you liable for the fee if you win the case but are unable to collect any money from the defendant (who goes bankrupt/moves home/has no assets). That's not an issue if you are suing a defendant who has substantial assets, but it's a real consideration if the defendant might be hard to collect from.

        yes that is something to bear in mind too. Really the lawyer offering the CFA should fully advise on these issues etc.
