Have you been wondering if you need to pay if you lose a no-win, no-fee claim with Accident Advice Helpline? If so, read on. You won’t normally need to pay us anything if you do lose a no-win, no-fee claim. The policy is subject to insurance costs and a fee is only payable if the case is not pursued at your request.
What if I lose a no-win, no-fee claim?
No-win, no-fee agreements are also known as Conditional Fee Agreements and they were first introduced in 1998 when Legal Aid for personal injury cases was withdrawn. The new agreements were designed to help those lacking in funds to pursue justice. The agreements are used in various types of civil litigation including clinical negligence cases and personal injury claims as well as complaints against employers. You do not need to give Accident Advice Helpline any money to launch a claim and you won’t need to pay us solicitors’ fees if you lose a no-win, no-fee claim.
You can claim compensation for General Damages, which can include ‘pain and suffering’ and ‘loss of amenity’. Compensation can also be used to reimburse lost earnings which you wouldn’t have missed out on had the accident not occurred. Future losses linked to the incident and injuries are also taken into account when compensation is worked out. Special Damages may also be claimed, which can cover medical costs, property damage, vehicle damage, therapy, costs for modifications to the home and more.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we are ready to hear from you if you have been in an accident that you didn’t cause and suspect that you could be entitled to compensation. We have been in the personal injury claims business since our 2000 inception and always do everything in our power to deliver the maximum level of compensation.
Making a claim
If your accident happened at work, don’t worry about taking money from your employer and putting them out of business as anything paid out to you will actually come from insurance which they must hold by law, not their budget. You can find out if you are likely to have a case and how much compensation you might be able to receive by taking the 30-second test online. Alternatively, call 0800 689 0500 on your landline or 0300 500 0993 if using your mobile to find out more.
