Be savvy about your personal injury options…
There are many advertisements promoting the ‘where there’s blame, there’s a claim’ culture and sometimes it’s difficult to be sure if, when you have been injured, you have reasonable grounds for a claim and how to go about making one.
Personal injury law can be complex and it’s advisable to find a qualified solicitor to take on your case, rather than trying to progress it yourself. Many reputable firms offer a free initial consultation and operate on a no win, no fee basis.
What does no win, no fee actually mean?
No-win, no-fee means that, if the claim is not successful, you will not have to pay the solicitor’s fees. Under a “No Win No Fee” agreement, you will only be expected to pay your solicitor’s fees if the case is decided in your favour. These costs are usually a percentage of the compensation awarded and are recovered directly from the compensation payment.
Your solicitor will help you understand the costs of your case and your options for covering them. At your initial consultation, you should find out;
- If your case will be ‘No Win No Fee’
- How much your case is likely to cost
- How the fees will be paid if you lose
- Whether you need to take out insurance to protect you against having to pay the defendant’s costs
