    Compensation in Leeds

    Maybe it says something about the modern world we live in but money worries hang heavily on us all. For anyone making a claim for compensation in Leeds there is the realisation that try as you might you cannot guarantee a successful outcome and if you lose you could find yourself in serious financial hot water. Small wonder, therefore, that so many people want a form of backup in case things go wrong. The best way to do this is by choosing lawyers who work on the basis of no win no fee*, but what does this really mean and is it more beneficial than any other means of charging?

    About ‘no win, no fee*’

    The idea behind no win, no fee*’ is pretty simple. It states that if you lose your case for any reason you should not have to pay a single penny. It’s a form of insurance, if you like, which pushes the risk of making a claim onto the shoulders of your law firm. Since they will be the ones tasked with ensuring you make a successful claim it’s only right that they share in the risk.

    Why ‘no win, no fee*’?

    The benefits for using no win, no fee*’ appear obvious. First it reduces the risk of making a claim. You will not be left in a position where making a claim can lead you to money worries.

    As such it opens up the legal system to anybody regardless of their personal background.

    It also ensures your law firm is likely to work harder to win the case. Their interests are tied up in yours as, if you don’t win your case, they will not be paid. It creates a true partnership between law firm and client.

    Things to watch out for

    But that doesn’t mean you should choose the first law firm which offers no win no fee* and go from there. Indeed, this is a highly complicated issue and it may turn out to be better to use a traditional law firm.

    Some of those firms who offer no win, no fee*’ do so on the basis that they increase the charges they actually levy in the event of a successful claim. What this means is that you will in effect be paying a portion of the legal bills for anyone who has made a claim in the past and not been successful.

    Accident Advice Helpline, meanwhile, operates a very transparent charging mechanism and will show you that just because you’re using ‘no win, no fee*’ to claim compensation in Leeds, you’re not giving anything up.
