If you live in Lenzie and need to make an injury claim then you should know that in 1998, the government abolished legal aid for personal injury compensation claims. This put suing for damages out of the reach of most people, only the rich could make a claim. In the 1999 Finance Act, the conditional fee arrangement was agreed for the use of an accident lawyer in Lenzie, and in 2000, Accident Advice Helpline was established to give access to justice for blameless victims of accidents or crimes.
No-win, no-fee is the common term used to describe the conditional fee agreement. As one of the leaders in the field, we believe that everyone should be compensated for their injuries if they were caused by someone else, and no-win, no-fee means there isn’t anyone that cant afford to make the claim. It means exactly what it says. You need no money to start your claim. If by any chance your case is lost, you will not owe any money in legal fees.

On our website, we have a compensation calculator, which we call the 30-second test. It has this name because that’s how long it takes to find out if you qualify for use of an accident lawyer in Lenzie. If you do qualify, it will give you an indication of the amount your may be awarded for your injuries. Remember though, that the estimate is just for your injuries, there are other things to be taken into account, such as:
- Replacement of damaged goods
- Care costs
- Medical costs
- Travelling coats
- Loss of earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Anxiety and stress
- Any other cost or loss that is because of the injuries you sustained in the accident.
