It’s a popular myth that lawyers are really out to look after their own interests when it comes to handling cases. To extract as high as a fee as possible for the least amount of work involved. The fact is, if that were so, there wouldn’t be too many around right now because such an attitude would give them a limited lifespan.
If you are injured in an accident that was not your fault get a best personal injury solicitor from Accident Advice Helpline. They can fight for your claim. Anyone without any doubts about the ethics of lawyers would soon realise that they are the good guys.
Fight for your rights
None more so than those serving within Accident Advice Helpline’s network in the UK – all 200 of them. The ones who fight for your rights and get you what you need and deserve, very often against all the odds in what can be challenging, drawn out and even aggressive battles with third party insurers, out of court and in. Our lawyers work on a no win no fee arrangement so, at no cost to you from the outset.
Best personal injury award
You can feel confident the one appointed to your case will try for the best personal injury award possible. In a free call to one of our advisers on 0800 180 4123, we’ll put you on the right track to securing what’s rightfully yours for your pain and losses. Very quickly, in a short half minute test, we establish the essentials of a claim: that the accident happened within the last three years, you were in no way to blame and that medical treatment was needed. That call can be made at any time, as our lines are manned 24/7.
Accident Advice Helpline shares the view prevalent in the PI business at the moment that Government proposals to cut lawyer’s fees have caused outrage because the fees proposed are so low that it will become impossible to be able to afford to do the work under the no win, no fee system – or Conditional Fee Agreements (CFAs) as they are formally known.
Difficult time ahead
It takes many hours of work to settle a case. Slashing fees means that the best personal injury lawyers face a difficult time from April, which is when the new regulations come into force. There are real concerns that many lawyers, including those in Accident Advice Helpline’s network, may face redundancy and unemployment. The irony is of course that such events will not come about through lack of work, as there will still be the same volume of cases. People will continue to be injured needlessly day after day, at work, on the roads, or in public spaces. This is where the best personal injury solicitors come into their own to help victims.
Research acknowledged by Accident Advice Helpline has shown that a client using a no win no fee best personal injury solicitor increased the compensation on offer from an insurer by up to ten times.
Awarded more in compensation
The Financial Conduct Authority has also found that people were awarded just under 275 per cent more in compensation through court proceedings than would have been achieved through a standard insurer payout. Insurers are of course commercial organisations looking to maximise profits for shareholders, and reduce the compensation paid out to injured people. This is a key element of increasing their profits. That’s a far cry from the standard remuneration a best personal injury lawyer receives as part of his ethical work practice.
