No Win No Fee Claim
No Win No Fee Claim
Millions of people every year in the UK suffer some kind of personal injury from an accident and many of these accidents are not their fault, but are down to the negligence of somebody else - an individual, employer or even a supermarket or local council.
Personal injuries can have a real impact on people's lives and the lives of their family and friends. They can cause someone to lose their job and their ability to earn and support their family, they can mean radical lifestyle changes, they can cause pain and suffering,and can even cause permanent disability or death. If the accident was not your fault, you have every right to seek personal injury compensation to compensate you for any financial losses and the pain that you have suffered.
But, isn't it expensive to claim personal injury compensation, especially now that there is no legal aid to help people with personal injury claims?
Well, it doesn't have to be.
There are two main ways in which personal injury solicitors will work - by the hour or on a "no win no fee" basis, which is also known as a conditional agreement. We've all seen those annoying adverts on TV where the company promises to get you thousands of pounds for an accident or injury on a "no win no fee" basis, but what does it really mean and how do you make a no win no fee claim?
Our specialist personal injury solicitors will assess your claim and your particular circumstances to decide whether you have a case that can easily be won. If your case is straightforward and there is a good likelihood of success, the solicitor will agree to act for you on a no win no fee, or conditional agreement, basis. This means that you will owe them nothing if they fail to get you compensation or if the case has to be abandoned. If the case is won, they will recover their standard fees and a bonus known as a "success fee" from the losing party.
Your accident injury solicitor should also be able to provide you with some type of "after the event" insurance or "legal fees" insurance to cover the legal fees of the winning party if you lose your case and are liable for paying their court and legal costs.
It is important if you have had an accident or injury that you seek legal advice as quickly as possible from one of our specialist solicitors on a no win no fee basis. Your solicitor will not only advise you on the likelihood of success, they will also be able to advise you on what evidence is needed to support your case, what your rights are and what you can actually claim for. You will need to prove that someone else was actually to blame for your accident and injury. This is not always easy to prove, but rest assured that our specialist personal injury lawyers are experts in their field and will know how to go about building a successful case.
