There are many things in life that are essential, but which can cost us a lot of money. Buying a property, for example, involves specialist legal help from a conveyancing solicitor. Claiming compensation is done with the help of specialist personal injury lawyers.
Why might someone not consider claiming?
However, there is one issue that prevents many people from even looking in to the possibility of claiming compensation: the cost. Their assumption is that the cost of personal injury solicitors in Maidstone will be far beyond their financial reach. It is easy to understand why.
When we see words like ‘specialist’, ‘qualified’, ‘expert’, ‘skilled’, and so on, we naturally assume that this will come at a cost. After all, as soon as someone becomes highly qualified and skilled in any area, especially law, their fees and costs can bounce to a phenomenal hourly rate.
But the true cost of a specialist personal injury solicitor can be a lot less than you think.
The true cost of personal injury solicitors in Maidstone
At one time, the financial risk of suing someone for personal injury compensation rested with the victim.
The law was clear. Anyone hurt through no fault of their own was entitled to seek redress from the responsible party. In other words, if you were hurt in a car accident caused by another driver, you made a claim for your injuries against them.
However, the accident victim was financially vulnerable because, should their attempt at claiming compensation fail, then they were liable for not only their own legal costs, but the costs of the person or people they were attempting to sue.
As a result, many people found the possibility of being left with a large bill too much of a risk to take, even though on paper their claim for compensation seemed valid enough.
In recognition that this was unfair to the victim, who was already hurt through no fault of their own, the Conditional Fee Agreement came in to being.
You will know this better as no win no fee!
