If you have been in an accident in Byfleet, no win no fee personal injury claims can offer a low risk way to get the justice you deserve. However, there continues to be significant confusion about no win no fee, how it works and how it can help you get the justice to which you should be entitled. This article will hopefully dispel some of those myths and set you on the path to claiming your rights in a court of law.
Byfleet, no win no fee claims
The idea of no win no fee came about back in the year 2000 when legal aid was removed from the majority of personal injury claims. This now meant that if you were injured in an accident you would receive no financial support from the government to help you make a claim. Understandably this made many people think twice about making a claim. Few people can afford the legal fees of a case, especially if it goes to court and even though you may think you have a cast iron case there is no such thing as a guarantee.
In order to ensure that ordinary people would continue to have a fair and equitable access to the law courts, the government brought in measures known as the Conditional Fee Arrangement. This meant that if you were injured in an accident the only time you would have to pay anything would be if you were successful with your case. As such it served as something of a safety net and ensured that if you were injured the only time you would have to pay anything would be if you won.
How it works
Some people believe that the arrival of no win no fee encourages claims which have only a moderate chance of success. That’s because there is no penalty for the claimant if they do not win. However the reverse is true. While the claimant has no risks, the same is not true of the law firm. If they make a claim which is unsuccessful it represents a considerable investment which has earned them nothing. As such they will be more likely to avoid making a claim which they feel only has a small chance of success. In other words it makes them more, rather than less, responsible.
