No win no fee*
When legal aid was removed from personal injury claims at the end of the 90s, the government brought in something called the Conditional Fee Arrangement. This is known better as no win no fee* and it works in roughly the same way as it sounds. Legal fees are only chargeable if the firm wins your case. In return the government allowed the firm to increase its fees slightly so that successful cases paid for those which were not successful. It’s a useful system as it means you don’t have to take risks with your own financial security and you can also have more faith in your law firm. They will be more inclined to work with your best interests in mind if they only get paid if you win.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve always worked on the basis of no win no fee*. We think it’s crucial to helping you find the compensation to which you should be entitled – without risking your financial health.
Going to court
If you go to court, your case will probably be heard in the small claims court. As the claimant in the case you’ll have to prove your version of events. You have to show that the defendant was at fault. They benefit from being considered innocent until proven guilty which means that unless you provide proof the court will have to find in their favour.
This means the more evidence you can provide the better your chances will be. However, if you’re worried about the prospect of going to court, there is no need. In most cases, the other side will decide to settle before it gets that far. Going to court can be expensive.
There are court fees and all sorts of other costs to consider. It’s definitely in their interests, therefore to get out of this with as little expense as possible. If they do make this offer, you’ll have to decide whether this is something you want to accept or not. In doing this the advice of your law firm could be critical.
Choosing a law firm
When choosing your solicitor, it’s important that you not only find a firm which has a good track record, but one that has experience in your type of personal injury claim. They will give you a much better chance of success.
