About the cost of an injury claims solicitor in Medway
The price of personal injury compensation can be quite high. Legal fees are expensive and once you factor in the costs of court fees, and medical assessments and so on, the price can climb pretty quickly. Understandably most people would be unable to meet these fees on their own so traditionally there have been measures to help them.
For many years legal aid was common for all kinds of personal injury claims, but that came to an end in the late nineties. At the time it was felt the entire process was too complicated and did little to assist genuine claimants.
The removal of legal aid created the inevitable problem; how could ordinary people afford to make a claim? In its place came something which has come to be known as no win no fee*.
About no win no fee*
Also called the Conditional Fee Arrangement, the idea is pretty simple: you will only pay legal fees if your claim is successful. There may be some other costs which are not counted as part of this deal, but in general the biggest financial risks will have been met.
The advantage is obvious – it reduces the risks of making a claim and means you will not be forced into debt because of your decision to claim. However, you still have to consider what happens if you do win your case.
If this happens there will be fees to pay. These will generally be taken as a percentage of your compensation claim and should not be more than 25%. The exact level will vary between different law firms so it is important to always understand what you pay and when.
