Do you need help from an experienced claim lawyer in Lewes to seek compensation
If you’re looking for an experienced claim lawyer in Lewes, you may be worried about how much this process is going to cost. However, here at Accident Advice Helpline, we want to take all the stress away from making a claim, which is why we offer an affordable way to claim compensation. On this page we’ll tell you more about what you can expect to receive from us.
Whenever you claim compensation, you might feel a little outmatched. In most cases you won’t be claiming against an individual, but an insurance company. They will have their own legal team which will be advising them what to do next. Add to that the potential costs of any personal injury claim and it can quickly seem like a bit of a risk.
That risk was made greater when legal aid was removed from the majority of personal injury claims at the end of the last century. To replace it the government introduced the Conditional Fee Arrangement. Today, we know this better as no win no fee and, as the name implies, it’s there to protect you in case things go wrong. Legal fees are only charged for successful cases. This means your law firm takes on the risk of making a claim, which naturally reduces the risk from your point of view.
There are other options for paying. Claims insurance does much the same thing as no win no fee. It provides cover in the event that a claim goes wrong. However, there are premiums to pay. These will increase the costs of a successful case and will still be payable no matter what happens. We feel no win no fee is a simpler approach and better value from your point of view.
What happens if you win
The vast majority of cases we take on are successful. That’s because we’re extremely careful about who we do and do not work with. We’ll only take on a case if we think you have a realistic chance of winning. We also offer no win no fee as a statement of confidence in our own service. We believe we can secure a good outcome and we’re so sure of this we’re putting out money where our mouth is.
When you do win, there may well be legal fees to pay which comes out of your compensation. Make sure you know how much this will be before you start. At Accident Advice Helpline, we’re always 100% transparent about any costs we charge.
