Introduced by the government in 2000, ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreements (or Conditional Fee Agreements) are often used in connection with personal injury compensation claims. Prior to this, many people used legal aid for most injury cases. Creating No Win No Fee agreements gives more people access to justice following accidents that were not their fault.
Whether it is an accident at work, at home, or on the roads, it can completely disrupt someone’s life. Opening a claim with a No Win No Fee solicitor gives many people the chance to pursue a claim that they otherwise might have avoided. It can be incredibly expensive to open a claim, and so it is better to instead look into No Win No Free agreements as you will not be out of pocket even if you win.
How does a No Win No Fee claim work?
A No Win No Free claim is exactly that. You open a claim that is, most usually, linked to you gaining compensation for an accident that was not your fault. In the event that the claim is not awarded in your favour, you will not be charged for your solicitor’s work.
This means that you are never left out of pocket. Solicitors’ fees can be incredibly expensive, but they become more manageable with a No Win No Fee agreement. You will not have to pay a thing unless you are awarded compensation in your win.
Why should I open a No Win No Fee claim?
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you need to consider opening a No Win No Fee claim. It is likely that your life will have been impacted by the accident in some way. Many people face emotional, physical, or financial trauma when they have an accident. Such trauma can completely change your life.
You might have had to give up work and other aspects of your everyday life. You may even have lost the use of a limb or other bodily functions because of the accident. Pursue justice for your injury and open a claim. Though it might stir up some painful memories during the proceedings, by the end of the claim you may have reached a new level of closure you would have missed before.
Will my solicitor not work as hard for No Win No Fee?
There can be an unfortunate line of thinking that a solicitor who operates under a No Win No Fee promise will not work as hard as someone who is paid from the very beginning. This is certainly not the case.
There is no need to worry, just because a solicitor operates under No Win No Fee does not mean that they will not give their all when getting you the compensation you deserve. Personal injury solicitors work with people whose lives have been changed in ways that they never could have foreseen and it can have a profound effect on them. They have years of experience that they can draw on to form the best cases possible, and they want to see compensation awarded to you to help make your life better.
What type of claims can be No Win No Fee?
At Shires Law, all of our personal injury claims are handled on a No Win No Fees basis. When you have been through an accident that was not your fault, you will deserve some compensation for the trauma that you have suffered. This is especially true if the accident took place in an environment where you are supposed to feel safe, such as your workplace or your own car – though these are just two areas that you can claim compensation for.
When opening a No Win No Fee claim, you need to make sure that it is backed up with evidence of the injury and the accident. This may cause you to face some traumatic memories, but it can be worth it if you then later receive the compensation you deserve. You may have to attend independent assessments to verify your medical reports. All of this will work towards creating a substantial case that can be used to boost your overall claim.
How can I open a No Win No Fee personal injury claim?
In the UK, your accident must have taken place no more than three years ago. There are some exceptions to this, but this is the general ruling that applies to most cases. The first thing you should do is get in touch with a No Win No Fee solicitor. They will advise you on what is needed to make the claim. Their advice can also be useful if you think you have a viable case for an accident that took place over three years ago.
