One of the main considerations when making a personal injury compensation claim is the cost involved. In the past, accident victims were able to claim Legal Aid to help them pay for their case, and when this was phased out, a method of claiming called the Conditional Fee Agreement took its place. You may be more familiar with the phrase no-win, no-fee* as this is another term for this type of agreement which is offered by the legal profession.
Accident Advice Helpline supports many accident victims every year in claiming compensation on this basis, and one of the most common types of claim is for car accidents. The fact that people can make car accident claims no-win, no-fee* based, offers the opportunity to access the justice system when they are vulnerable, and allows them to obtain compensation for injuries that were sustained through no fault of their own.
