    Top 5 reasons to use a no win, no fee agreement

    Since 2005, the law in England and Wales has made it far easier for people to get the compensation they are due after an accident. The no win, no fee system, also known in legal circles as conditional fee, has revolutionised the legal profession and there are several great reasons to use this method for your compensation claim under asbestos legislation or after an accident.

    Low risk

    There is no risk associated with a no win, no fee case, unlike regular legal proceedings where you would be expected to pay legal costs up front and risk paying the opposition’s costs if you lose. If you lose on a no win, no fee case, you won’t be out of pocket.

    Motivation

    If your lawyer knows he is only going to pick up his fee if he wins the case, then the likelihood is that he is going to work harder for you than if you are simply paying his hourly rate, whatever he does. Accident Advice Helpline are experts in the fields of compensation, accidents and asbestos legislation so you can rest assured that they are doing everything possible to win your case for you.

    Chance of winning

    If a lawyer knows they are only going to get paid if they win, they are less likely to take on cases with no prospect of success. This means that clients are spared the stress of going through a legal case with no chance of winning.

    Alternatives

    There are other alternatives to no win, no fee arrangements, most of which involve taking out finance or insurance policies to cover the legal fees. Accident Advice Helpline do not ask for any payment up front for their services at all, making their compensation claims process accessible to anyone and everyone.

    Asbestos legislation

    Asbestos legislation was passed by the government to compensate people who were exposed to asbestos fibres through their work. The unusual aspect of asbestos legislation is that it covers people who may have already died from their illness and allows their families to claim the compensation on their behalf. There are certain conditions which must be met for a successful claim, so speak to Accident Advice Helpline immediately if you think that you or a family member may be entitled to compensation.
