In need of the best legal advice in Chorley?
If you have been in an accident in Chorley, no win no fee personal injury claims are the best and certainly least risky way of getting justice. Since the removal of legal aid for the vast majority of personal injury cases, there has always been a danger that the legal system would become closed off to ordinary people who didn’t have the funds to pay the legal fees of their lawyers. However, thanks to no win no fee that’s no longer the case. Even so paying for your fees can still present something of a headache.
Chorley, no win no fee claims
No win no fee, also known as the conditional fee arrangement, came into being after the removal of legal aid in 2000. It represents a very simple deal between yourself and your law firm and if you are injured in an accident you will not have to pay unless you win your case. It’s intended to provide reassurance for those who would be unable to afford their legal fees if the case goes against them. In other words it’s a much fairer way of accessing your legal rights.
There are other ways of paying of course. You could take your chances and work on a traditional fee structure, but as the old gambler’s saying never risk more than you can afford to lose and even with the most straightforward and seemingly open and shut cases there will always be a risk. It will all come down to what the sides can prove in court and, to a degree on the opinion of the court at the time. So it’s always nice to have a back up plan. Some people opt for claims insurance which covers you in the event that you lose your case, but if you do not win then you may find yourself having to prize the money out of the insurance firm and they can come up with some pretty innovative ways to avoid parting with their hard earned cash.
Making a claim
It’s also a mistake to judge a lawyer simply on whether or not they offer no win no fee. Many people look at this and think there’s nothing more to it. However, if you do win then you will have to pay legal fees and as with anything else, these can vary. Always make sure that you know what you’re paying before you agree to take on a lawyer.
