One of the biggest reasons that people sometimes fail to make a claim is the fear that they will not be able to afford the legal fees. For this reason we thought we’d put together this quick article to tell you what fees you might be liable to pay. In addition we’ll show you how you should go about finding a compensation solicitor in Ladram Bay who can help you make a no win no fee* claim.
Paying for your case
There have been substantial changes in recent years to the way in which you will have to pay for your case. The first is that in the late nineties the government stopped providing legal aid for personal injury cases. This meant that individuals would therefore have to pay the fees themselves, which has put many people off the thought of claiming compensation.
More recently there have also been changes in the way lawyers can be paid for this type of case. Until recently, they would collect their success fees from the other side which reduced the amount you would have to pay in the event of a successful claim. But this is no longer possible, so these fees will be added to your overall claim.
Ways to pay
The ways in which you pay will vary. Sometimes there will be set fees which you pay no matter what happens. This is a risky option as, if you do not win, you would not only miss out on the compensation, but be left with a hefty legal bill.
This is why many people decide to go for something called no win, no fee*. This is a simple way of working which ensures that if you do not win your case you will not have to pay a single penny. It’s an excellent way to reduce the inherent risks involved with making a personal injury claim.
If you do win then the fee will probably come out of your compensation sum. This may vary depending on the deal you reach with your law firm but it should not be any more than 25-30% which means you keep the vast majority of your claim.
There may also be a referral fee to pay if you’ve used an intermediary to find the lawyer for you.
