Conditional Fee Agreements were introduced in 1998 when it was decided that Legal Aid would no longer be available for personal injury cases.
They very quickly became known as no win no fee agreements and are important as they allow those who may not be able to afford expensive legal fees, the right to claim compensation for injuries they have sustained in an accident which wasn’t their fault.
Claiming with no win no fee there are no up-front legal costs and if you don’t win your case, you don’t pay a penny in solicitor fees.
Not all solicitors are prepared to work on this basis but at Accident Advice Helpline we offer a guaranteed 100% claiming with no win no fee on all compensation claims. There are no hidden or upfront costs involved.
General Damages Compensation
‘General Damages’ can be difficult to calculate and include ‘pain and suffering’ (for both the initial injury and for any continuing suffering or disability) and ‘loss of amenity’ which is loss of the enjoyment of life, for example if you can no longer take part in a leisure activity due to your injury.
Compensation may also be awarded for loss of earnings caused by permanent injury. Future losses are also taken into consideration and are calculated according to the estimated annual loss to arrive at a fair figure for compensation.
Special Damages Compensation
‘Special Damages’ can also be claimed, these are usually easier to calculate accurately and include the following:
- Loss of earnings whilst injured
- Prescription charges and medical costs
- Property damage
- Insurance excess
- Damage to Vehicles
- Special care aids and equipment
- Adapted transport
- Car hire
- Travel expenses
- Cost of assistance
- Costs of care
- Adapted accommodation
- Out of pocket expenses
