    Facts of no win no fee


    Facts of no win no fee

    In the media and advertising, we have become used to hearing the phrase no win no fee cropping up regularly, but how much do you really know about the facts of no win no fee? It is used to refer to personal injury claims, where the person who has suffered the accident feels that they were not responsible for what happened but someone else was. Before beginning your claim for compensation, it is helpful to look at the facts of no win no fee in order to establish whether it is relevant to you, and how much you can expect to be awarded if your case is successful.

    Many people are drawn in by assurances of a guaranteed victory; certain companies may make promises that make it appear the case is certain to succeed. In these circumstances, it is understandable that the layperson will be convinced; after all, they are talking to an expert. Nevertheless, such claims are misleading and simply designed to attract as many customers as possible.

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we prefer to take on a far more honest approach to your claim. We can assure you that we always have your best interests at the forefront of our minds and any action undertaken will be done so after careful consideration. Furthermore, we are careful to establish the viability of each claim, ensuring you have a reasonable chance of winning compensation. In order to make this assessment, we will talk to you about what happened in depth. More importantly, we will listen to what you have to say, how you feel about the incident and how you have been affected by the aftermath.

    The key elements that make up almost every successful claim begin with identifying exactly what happened. To move forward with your case, we need to be sure that when the accident occurred, it was not through any fault on your part. This can be proved in an incredibly broad number of incidences. Negligence can be shown in the case of botched medical procedures, road traffic accidents or even a fall in a public place. These are just a few examples of the types of claim we can help with. The one thing they have in common is that they only happened because of a third party’s carelessness or neglect.

    The second important feature of all claims that we take on is that the injury you received as a result of what happened is apparent and affecting your life in an adverse way. You may have had to stop work or take time off as a consequence. Alternatively, if your mobility has been impaired, the extra cost of day-to-day living expenses is likely to have impacted negatively on your finances. Naturally, it will count in your favour if you have reported what happened to a medical professional and received treatment.
