No win no fee* – four words that almost all of us understand, but what do they actually mean? In this article we’re going to look at what we mean by the term and how this relates to anyone claiming compensation in Carmarthen.
What is no-win, no-fee* compensation in Carmarthen?
The idea of no-win, no-fee* legal services started back in the nineties when the government removed legal aid from the vast majority of personal injury claims.The aim was to protect people on a limited budget from the severe financial risks associated with making a claim. Under the regulations everyone had to pay, and so those on a low income could not claim personal injury compensation in Carmarthen, or elsewhere in the UK.
No-win, no-fee* services were certainly something that we thought was important when we set up Accident Advice Helpline. We decided that everyone, no matter what their station, deserved to have full access to the law courts.
If you claim compensation in Carmarthen with us at Accident Advice Helpline, you won’t have to pay us anything upfront to start a claim on your behalf.
Making a no-win, no-fee* compensation claim is not the only way to claim compensation in Carmarthen; indeed there are many other ways which could prove equally useful. One of these is claims’ insurance. It provides cover if you should lose your case, but watch out; premiums can be high and you should always read the small print.
At Accident Advice Helpline we favour no-win, no-fee* services because that makes things so much simpler, we find.
Are you eligible to make a claim for compensation?
You can make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that the accident in which you sustained your injury was not your fault. You also have to prove that it was someone else’s fault.
You should also have had medical treatment for your injuries as soon as was possible after the accident. You can prove that you did if you produce your medical records and the doctor’s report. These documents will be needed if you decide to pursue a claim for compensation in Camarthen. They are needed to assess the amount of compensation you might be awarded for your injuries if your claim is successful.
Your accident should have occurred within the last three years.
