People who have been involved in an accident are often reluctant to approach a firm of solicitors to make a claim for compensation for injuries because they are worried about incurring costly legal fees. This no longer need be a cause for concern. Under a No Win No Fee compensation claim agreement (conditional fee agreement) solicitors agree not to charge any fees at all unless they win the case and recover financial compensation*. We operate the no win no fee scheme otherwise known as a conditional fee agreement. No legal charge is payable unless the legal case is won and the client obtains an award of compensation. In the event that the legal claim is lost there is no charge made to the client.
The obvious question though is what happens if you lose? Will you have to pay the other side's expenses and legal fees? The simple answer to this problem is for your solicitor to take out a policy of Legal Expense Insurance. Your solicitor can advise you on how to go about purchasing such an insurance policy at no cost to yourself. In the event that you lose your case the insurance policy not only pays the other side's costs for you, it also repays the cost of the insurance itself.
No Win No Fee compensation claim agreements are an excellent way to fund your claim for compensation arising from a road traffic accident, an industrial accident or a trip, slip or fall. It should however be mentioned that there are several other potential methods of funding a personal injury claim. People suffering personal injury at work may also have legal protection from their Trade Union and those involved in other types of accidents may already have Legal Expense Insurance available to them under their motor insurance policy or their home contents insurance policy. In addition some people will inevitably insist on privately funding a claim which is not advisable if a solicitor has already refused a conditional fee agreement
