When quizzed about their biggest concerns when making a personal injury claim, the majority of people tend to respond that they are most worried about money, and with good reason. Claiming compensation in Gelligaer can become something of a major gamble. Get it wrong and not only will you miss out on the compensation which could have been vital in helping you get back on your feet, but you could also be left with a major bill which you’re unable to pay. So how do you make sure that claiming compensation doesn’t put you on the bread line.
Paying for compensation in Gelligaer
Legal fees can be extremely expensive, and it’s not hard to see why. Lawyers are highly trained and professional individuals, so they expect to be paid as such. Those fees become even higher if you go to court. These cases can drag on for several years and since by definition long cases are those with the most doubt, the risks grow the longer the case takes. This is why it’s always a good idea to have an idea about firstly how much the fees will be and how you are going to pay.
An option is called no-win, no-fee. This essentially shifts the risk of claiming compensation onto your law firm, so if you lose they will waive their fees and take the hit themselves.
This appeals to people because it feels like a shot to nothing, but you should always keep an eye out on how the firm might try to claw back any advantage. A common approach might be to try something such as hidden fees which are counted no matter whether or not you win, while some will cover themselves by pumping up success fees to a much higher level meaning those who win their cases end up paying the bills of those who don’t.
