To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must demonstrate:

- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness

When the claim is successful, the costs for your lawyer will be covered by the other party or their insurance company. If your solicitor does not win claim, a No Win, No Fee agreement between you and the lawyer means you will not have to pay the solicitor's legal costs.
