Repeated surveys appear to show that the biggest factor putting people off claiming compensation in Milton is the factor of cost. Therefore we’ve put this article together to show you how to go about claiming compensation without putting your own finances at risk.
Paying for compensation in Milton
As any internet search will show there are plenty of law firms available for anyone looking to claim compensation in Milton. All you have to do is decide between them. Each will have their own payment structure and ways of working, so it’s important to shop around until you find the right fit for your needs.
For many people this is the most important part, because with no legal aid to help them out they may find themselves glancing anxiously at their bank balances before they decide whether or not they can make a claim.
There are options to make the burden of paying for compensation a little lighter. One of these is known as claims insurance. This provides cover in case you are unsuccessful with a claim.
Things to watch out for with this are the cost of the premiums and any excess on the policy. This will mean you end up paying something no matter what happens and you could still end up paying a portion of your fees.
No-win, no-fee is a more complete option. As the name suggests it represents a promise on the part of us as your law firm, to waive our fees if the claim is unsuccessful. It’s about taking responsibility for what happens with any case and ensuring that we only get paid if we have delivered on what we promised.
Things to watch out for
But that doesn’t mean you should just find the first lawyer who can help you claim compensation in Milton on a no-win, no-fee basis. The downside of having this safety net is that law firms can often charge higher fees as a result. In effect they are using the money from successful cases to pay for those that they lose. You are paying a premium for the peace of mind that comes with working on a no-win, no-fee basis. So it pays to be aware of how much a firm charges. In general they shouldn’t charge more than 25% of any compensation fee.
