The concept of no-win, no-fee* is a popular one. But what does it mean and how does it differ to other forms of payment. This guide will tell you more about how this idea works, some of the pitfalls to watch for as well as how it can help you find a firm of accident experts in Narberth.
Paying for your solicitor
The biggest worry you have when making any purchasing decision is how much will it cost. This can vary considerably depending on what arrangement you have with the solicitor. Some may charge fees from the outset. This could include any consultation you have and any work undertaken during the course of the case.
Others may pay themselves through the compensation award. By doing this they are able to offer, in many cases, a promise to only charge if you win the case.
This has natural appeal especially for those who may feel uncertain about placing a lot of money up-front before you know if you’re going to win the case.
However there are things to watch for.
Can you trust a label?
It is fair to say perhaps that people are more suspicious of personal injury lawyers than other professions. This is not entirely fair – any industry has people who offer a better or worse service than others and any industry has people who use marketing to their own ends.
Because that’s precisely what the no-win, no-fee* label is, in one respect. It’s a tremendous piece of marketing that provides reassurance and tempts people in. You can naturally think that you can trust anyone you work with because there are no fees at risk if it doesn’t work out.
However, stop and think again. It is easy to say you are no-win, no-fee* without sticking to the terms as rigidly as you should. For example, a firm might find ways to include all sorts of hidden costs that you won’t have thought about.
So it pays to tread carefully and to look closely at any contract so you know exactly what happens and what you are paying.
