I have always thought the driving instructors are very brave with some of the appalling driving standards exhibited by inexperienced drivers.
I stepped in as an instructor once. Never again :eek:

I was streaming NBCS a few weeks ago. Every second advertisment was class action against medical providers or drug companies. It was a scary window into Australia's future

I don't know if no win/no fee will bring more litigation. Surely a lawyer will only take on a case that's a winner otherwise he does it all for nothing. I wonder if no win/no fee actually STOPS some people litigating because they're told it has no merit?

In very simple terms, lets say you litigate a matter on a no-win no-fee basis that is listed for a 3 day hearing with a slim prospect of success. From the insurer's perspective, let's assume it will cost them $100k to defend the matter, and further assume that the plaintiff has little or no assets against which costs can be recovered.

If the defendant insurer wins and also gets a costs order, next they will have to try and recover the costs against someone whose already poor. More often than not it makes sense for the insurer to work out what their costs are likely to be, and then settle for equal to or less than that amount.

As a plaintiff firm, you could rinse and repeat this process and really start churning them out.

On a no-win no-fee contract are the fees are substantially higher?
