“I didn’t think it would ever happen to me…”
Accidents happen. We walk and drive around every day, oblivious to the tragedy that could strike at any minute. Clearly, not a pleasant thought, but it is there.
Some of us may have made financial provisions, through insurances, for example should the ‘worst’ happen but for some, this financial security is not apparent.
Some people think that the State will pay for any care they need but with budgets across the board being squeezed smaller and smaller, year on year it could be that, if the worse did happen, you may find that this financial security is not there.
What would you do?
Luckily, there is another option and that is claiming compensation for any injuries you may have suffered.
This entitlement to claim compensation has been part of UK law for decades and not, as some people think, an American invention. You should look for the best solicitor in Torbay to assist.
Money, money, money
However, until 2000, making a compensation claim could be done under the legal aid umbrella. In other words, you could lodge a personal injury complaint without significant risk to your financial wealth.
But, this legal aid entitlement was removed which was a catastrophe. It meant that ‘ordinary’ people were effectively excluded or felt less inclined to take the financial risk of suing for compensation. Failure would mean a hefty bill.
The unfairness of this was recognised and, as a result, a conditional fee agreement was reached. In practice, this is called no win, no fee* and you will be pleased to know this is how our solicitor in Torbay works!
Effectively, for you, as part of the robust assessment procedures we have, you will be making a genuine, eligible claim and you will NOT need to put up any money up front or put your house ‘on the line’!
