‘No win, no fee*’* is something that many people will have heard regularly over the last few years and it might be something that has been dismissed as being too good to be true. It is entirely true though and the experts at Accident Advice Helpline will help you to get the maximum compensation that they can for you. 100% of which will go directly to you, the successful claimant.
Back in 1998, the decision was taken to remove legal aid for those who needed to make a personal injury claim. This decision instantly priced many claimants out of the market, leaving them with little choice but to avoid taking legal action when they were very much entitled to compensation.
The conditional fee agreement – also known as ‘no win, no fee*’* – came about as a result of this. It was clear that more help was needed and Accident Advice Helpline was set up in 2000 to help those who had been left out in the cold by these changes. Personal finances are no longer an issue when it comes to making a claim for compensation as this system treats everybody the same.
So how does the ‘no win, no fee*’* system actually work? The main point is that there is nothing to pay upfront. Claimants can get legal advice and take action against those responsible for their injury without fear that they will be given a large invoice to pay. If the case is not successful then there is nothing to pay at the end of the process. In addition, Accident Advice Helpline will match you with a solicitor who will work hard to obtain the right result.
The claimant is matched up to a specialist solicitor who will offer advice on the best way to proceed. The aim is to get the claimant maximum compensation for the injuries that they have suffered as a result of somebody else’s negligence. The type of accident varies from road accidents to accidents in the workplace, but if the claimant has been injured through no fault of their own, somebody else is responsible and they are entitled to compensation. Even the smallest of trips and falls can have a catastrophic effect on a person’s life, and insurance companies are in place in order to make sure that people are paid compensation where necessary.
One of the advantages of this type of claim is that to get started it only takes a phone call where you give some basic information on your situation. The solicitor will advise you on the type of information that you need to provide so that the claim can be pursued if it is a viable claim. People who are holding back from making a claim because they believe that they may not be entitled to compensation are advised to call Accident Advice Helpline to find out more. The ‘no win, no fee*’* system has been designed to help everybody and there is nothing to lose by making a phone call to find out more.
