Are you letting concern over the cost of claiming for a head injury deter you from initiating a compensation claim against the party responsible for your accident? If so, you are making a serious mistake. There really is no need at all to worry about the cost of claiming for a head injury.
Making compensation affordable to all
It used to be possible to obtain legal aid in the UK when you wanted to start a compensation claim. Changes to the law some years ago mean that this is not an option these days. In order to ensure that people of ordinary means could still afford to claim compensation, accident solicitors began offering their legal services on a no-win, no-fee* basis.
What exactly does the no-win, no-fee* deal entail? No-win, no-fee* is really just as simple as it sounds. It means that if your solicitor does not succeed in winning your compensation money, you will not have to pay their fees. Nor will you be expected to pay any initial fee.
You will pay your solicitor if and when they win the case on your behalf. Their fee will simply be a percentage of the compensation money you win. In other words, your solicitor only gets paid if and when you do.
You should really think about taking action
In the cost of claiming for a head injury is the one thing that has been putting you off starting your claim, you really should think about taking legal action. Moderate to severe head injuries can involve a long and difficult recovery. This is especially true of injuries severe enough to change behaviour patterns and damage cognitive function.
If your brain is damaged by a head injury, it can even mean not being able to return to work again. This can put you in a financially stressful situation that you don’t need. Are you going to tolerate all of that misery without asking the person who caused your accident to pay you something to make up for what they did? You shouldn’t have to put up and shut up, and there is no need to do so when affordable help is available.
